    I worked at OverDrive full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of talented people there, and I made a lot of great friends working at OverDrive. It was great learning from some of the senior staff there. It was also interesting to see the eBook industry from their shoes, as opposed to just as a consumer.

    The benefits - the insurances and 401k - were okay, nothing special.

    Cons

    * Growing too quickly and not being able to maintain top talent
    * Underpaid significantly compared to industry standards
    * Conflicts and communication issues between departments caused unnecessary fire drills
    * Lack of knowledge for some managers
    * Lack of training opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Make sure that managers know something about the team they are managing so that they can properly delegate work as needed.
    * Have more management training courses that bring the managers together more. There were a lot of communication issues between departments that caused unnecessary "emergencies" and slow downs, and proper communication is key.
    * Reinforce the message to all teams that egos and personal problems need to be checked at the door and that everyone is working for a common goal. It isn't personal; it's business.
    * Invest in your employees' training, and you'll reap rewards for updated skills.
