What I like about the company

This space intentionally left blank.

What I dislike about the company

Employee job functions were systematically sabotaged to justify an automation system that looks good to investors but does not actually work, requiring the destruction of the more valuable two-thirds of the inventory that is incompatible with it and generating wrong information on at least a third of what it can process.

Favoritism is rampant, with different standards for different employees. A solid effort to eliminate any employee with knowledge about the used books industry is made.

Due to a complete lack of any cleaning budget or air filtration system, the airborne dust level approaches toxicity.
