Pros

very laid back. room for growth for junior staff.

Cons

I work in ITG and find it a bit behind everything in terms of technology. It's a small organization, so your exposure to tech is limited. certainly no the creme of the crop..

    Pros

    Great benefits, Excellent opportunities for librarians working in specialized fields, Unusually high compensation for librarians, Supportive learning and development department. The opportunity to work at one of the best libraries in the world.

    Cons

    Lots of uncertainty about funding and constant threat of lay-offs. Evenings and weekends are usually required even in positions that would not normally require them--professionals who are not librarians. Very active rumor mill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The flat organizational structure seems to be more of a myth than a reality. The only evidence I saw of it in my tenure there was a sharp reduction in administrative support, and executive responsibility without empowering professional and clerical staff to take more control over their work.
