    Pros

    As a company, they are invested in your professional growth. They are flexible with your time off, and there are plenty of opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    There are not many, however, there is some separation from those in higher positions and those in lower positions...even within the same team.

    Advice to Management

    I think that as a whole Ebsco is a great place to work. Keep up the good work, and continue to try to bridge the gap between the higher ups and the worker bees.

    Pros

    The people that work here are great!

    EBSCO seems committed to providing above average health care options while keeping costs as minimal as possible. That is tough now days.

    Cons

    Salaries are lower than similar positions at other companies.

    Great benefits, but some poor management (division by division)

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at EBSCO

    Pros

    For the most part, there is a casual atmosphere. Pay may be a little lower than similar jobs at other companies, but the benefits really are great.

    Cons

    Most upper management I encountered while working here had serious problems communicating, making decisions and proactively making changes to carry the division into the future.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They are the ones on the front lines encountering the issues that need to be addressed. Keep them updated with what's going on, and engage with them for a team effort to benefit the company.
