Attitude towards older colleagues

Long serving workers are being pushed out.

Career Development

training is provided for technicians and para-professionals in order to get promoted.

Overall compensation for your work

Salaries match responsibilities but there have been no monetary rewards for outstanding accomplishments for years.

Company Image

The image is reflected based on the clientele served. Customers have stated that the homeless
"own the libraries".

Job Security

Employees do rightfully compiain about being frequently moved.

Handicapped Accessibility

The disabled are accommodated for the most part. The bathroom doors should be automated.

Workplace Safety

Employees desire to have library police in each building. There always seems to be a problem with the heating and a/c.

Challenging Work

It was always difficult to plan programs because of restrictions imposed.

Inclusive / Diverse

An effort is being made by the current director to improve diversity but far too many employees are leaving the agency after two years or less .

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire former library employees as consultants to get constructive criticism from current employees. The consultants can meet on a quarterly basis. Current employees are afraid to speak out for fear of reprimand.
  • Hire employees to work Sundays. There are former employees who might be willing to work Sundays only or Saturday/Sunday twice monthly.

What I like about the company

Attempts to conduct informational programs but an effort needs to be made
to find out why adult programs are so poorly attended.

What I dislike about the company

Being forced to work on Sundays. Sunday work used to be on a volunteer basis
and employees were paid time and a half.
