Suggestions for improvement

  • I think there needs to be more of an open door policy in terms of administration. There is such a separation and we on the floor level have no clue what happens or why in terms of administration and I think if they were more transparent it would help employee morale overall

What I like about the company

I have met a lot of people in my field around the state because of the great work we do being such a large research library. The networking opportunities are amazing and I’ve had the chance to do a lot of collaborative work outside of the library.

What I dislike about the company

I think the administrative structure is so stiff and old fashioned, it’s hard as a mid level person to get your ideas across because you have to go through so many bureaucratic hoops to get there. There is also a poor union and non union relationship and it creates fear among everyone so everyone is on their toes.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make it less awkward and difficult with the union against non union employee tensions.

What I like about the company

Everyone on a personal level is extremely friendly and welcoming. You don’t just walk past people with your head down everyone says hello and asks how you are.

What I dislike about the company

The way the union environment is, and I am a union member, does not allow for people to grow and learn things about other departments. It creates a palpable divide among employees who are told to stay in their role because they can’t cross train. I think you lose valuable ideas that way that could make the library better.
