Pros: Good co workers, company outings
Cons: Everything Else
Baker & Taylor is a good place to work, as long as you get a long with your team, like most places, of course.
I currently work here. I enjoy the people I work with, but not the upper management. They are afraid of conflict and are all talk, no action.
A typical day at work is hectic and stressful. As more and more responsibilities are "sorted out," to other departments they are then replaced with more areas we do not need to handle. In the beginning we were trusted. Now, with new upper management in place, we are micromanaged. The expectations are now outrageous and drone-like. If you so much step out of your area you get stared at, like you don't belong. Excuse me, while I try and go the toilet.
I learned how to successfully make lasting professional and personal relationships at this place, as we all work closely together. I will miss them when I move on to bigger and better things.
My co-workers. I adore most - others are not my favorite, but this happens everywhere. Where I work I like everyone.
The hardest part of the job is trying to keep up with the amount of that comes in. We cannot finish everything in time, ever. Upper management seems to think we do "Just fine," despite that they have no clue what goes on down here, while they sit behind their desks and argue about more important things than the mental and physical well being of their worker bees.
The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to see the friends I've made. We are all very close knit, and when one of us is not there their absence is felt.
Overall, it's a good place. Provided – more... you don't care about how they run things behind the curtain...also there is asbestos in the warehouse. Good job there, guys. – less
