"Old School, the company is very far behind in tech. Lots of people in upper management positions do not know how to work Excel. This is a problem, Fresh new talent will not want to stay or stay long. "

"As a woman, this is a fine place to work. Some managers make borderline comments about appearance, but the biggest offenses come from customers (which we can't, of course, control)."
Anonymous Review Image
"It appears that more women get hired than men, but more men get promoted than women. There seem to be specific jobs that Barnes & Noble will give to women, like café manager or server, head cashier, and children's lead positions. They mostly give men management and upper management positions on a store and corporate level."
