    I have been working at Library of Congress full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable, except for when there are budget debates in Congress.

    Cons

    Archaic. The mean age of the library employee is somewhere around 58 years old. Poor management and leadership. Lots of retirement in place. Some people work really hard where others are hardly working. The organization needs to be overhauled but no one wants to go through the effort. Salaries are arbitrary and rest largely with your manager and not your actual work load.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No one really reviews staff position descriptions every year to make sure they are accurate. Promotions shouldn't be given to the longest standing person for surviving the longest. People who work hard should be acknowledged and managers shouldn't be so lazy about submitting paperwork.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
