Topics regarding layoffs at Follett
There's a group of 200+ former associates who will provide mental support and networking, along with a chance to vent a b--check it out if you're on FB.
There is a lawsuit against Follett. It was about time.
So after Ray said there were no new layoffs planned they canned 25+ people but then turned around and hired a new SVP/ CFO because we need another bean counter to tell us how we aren't making enough and that we need to trim the fat all the while I'm... read more
Two weeks ago your CEO promised no additional layoffs before year end. The separation agreement is on my coffee table. Merry Christmas. Does this generation of Folletts require integrity and accountability of those who run your company? Or are the... read more
Can anyone confirm salary cuts at FSS and details? Hoping it is false.
Sorry to see our friends treated like this. http://wesleyanargus.com/2016/12/01/new-wesleyan-bookstore-on-main-st/
The biggest threats to innovation is an organizations culture and internal politics. This company will fail as long as the US vs. THEM culture exists! Sadly to say....with current leadership...this culture will never change. RIP Follett...for the... read more
Has anyone noticed that every report Paul D sends out is always has to be updated or he sends out emails that schedules are not completed in the required time but yet sends out paroll reports for the next month after the next month has started.
For a company that doesn't know how to find it's way out of a paper bag, let alone implement a system efficiently, they sure do get those termination packages out lickity split! They know where their priorities are. Pathetic.
Great leaders lead by example, are transparent, have integrity, are innovating, are trustworthy, cares about their teams, have passion for their industry....just to name a few. Follett's leaders, lead by talk, just transparent enough to make it look... read more
It's funny how a stupid post is made after the truth about the leadership is reported. Just a tactic to divert your attention from what is really going on. Referring to the DE comment.
It is more of a sign of lack of leadership, innovative, creativity and common knowledge. I think his "executive" team needs to take a self inventory of their own skillset. If they are honest with themselves they will come to the same conclusion that... read more
We're basically on life support. Good luck to all those let go today.
The ivory tower is full of incompetent a-holes , with no values or morals! Don’t bother having a town hall just to tell your lies (HO RIFs), screw us of our benefits (merit, reviews, 401k, bonus) and then blame all the people YOU fired 2 ½ years ago... read more
Not more than 2 weeks ago, Ray G. Said at the town hall that they chose to cut benefits, bonus, merit and 401k rather than lay off more people. Well, today they are chopping heads in IT. You want to save a bunch of money on IT, dump CORE POS already.
Layoffs in the tower today?
The previous post is just a diversion tacit to get you mind off the key points. So I will point them out once again. Overly staffed executive suite, under-qualified executives, out dated business models, and lack of trustworthy leadership, just to... read more
Crybabies. Looks like you all are still exempt (for the time being)
RG also mentioned that success is measured by hitting your numbers. Hmmm...to me success is not only hitting your numbers...it's also about what you do to hit those numbers. So in my eyes...you and your overly staffed executive team hitting your... read more
All of you are so narrow minded. Pat usher. Bob Scholl. Carol winter all survived Don G. He came and brought Kmart people. Kmart failed. Sears is horrible. This was all on hiring him. He got rid of so many people. Now you want to blame the people who... read more
RG mentioned that we need to hit our numbers because that is what we promised to do. Funny, I don't remember anyone asking me about my budget. And I sure the hell didn't make a promise that I would hit it. He also mentioned that he is accountable. He... read more
Is there anyone on this page who has left Follett and is much happier? I'd like some encouragement!
Did anyone else notice the audience in RG's grand town hall? If you watch, it's the same loop of people doing the same random things over and over. In particular, watch for the blond woman picking at her light colored sweater sleeve and the... read more
2016 - no raise or bonus 2017 - pay decrease, no raise, no bonus, and benefit cuts 2018 - possibly another no raise no bonus year I have been angry, but I actually love my store, my staff, and my school. So I was s---ing up how much I despise... read more

Not only are posts being pulled here where individuals are expressing their rights, but, as usual, more fake reviews of Follett are surpassing the truth on other sites.
I'm thankful that fewer posts are being put on this site. I wish every employee the very best and thank you for serving your customers each day on your campuses across our country.
How can we have a full time marketing VP if our guy lives in Wisconsin and only spends 3 days a weeks in the northeast. And you wonder why B& N has an upper han.
For a company that pulls in billions of dollars in sales how can we be so dumb and not turn a profit. I call shenanigans. I bet the Follets are taking a "salary" from the company still. Get your hands out of the cookie jar!
