    Management cannot take criticism

    Pros

    It might be a short drive. Benefits package is okay. Generally give raises every year. A lot of people do not have to move very quickly, so if you get a manager who likes you, you may not have to do very much.

    Cons

    No opportunities for advancement unless you have been branded by some unknown assessment criteria. There is no actual assessment of employee abilities or potential. If you have too much ability senior management might find you threatening. Managers do not take criticism well, and they will respond as a group with intimidation to credible criticism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They might need to take some classes in personnel management, communication, and business strategy. They tend to mumble, crab, or overeagerly praise associates. They own the school library market, had many opportunities to capitalize on other markets, and were happy to ride the library market.
