I worked at New York Public Library full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Wonderful mission and employees. I gained amazing experience and working with the crazy, demanding and amazing patrons. I miss it every day.

Cons

Current management is not supporting employee success. They are trying to implement much needed standards, but are not giving people the support needed to meet their goals. Too little money and time, too little control of the working situation. Glad every day to be out of there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hold people to high standards, but give them respect.

    I have been working at New York Public Library full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    We connect New Yorkers, from every walk of life, to everything from the latest hot novel to the proper social services office. Every day brings something new, and it's never boring. You work with some of the smartest, most creative, most dynamic people in the city, and have the chance to network with the people who run New York.

    Cons

    Every branch is short staffed and overworked. It sometimes feels like upper management is more concerned with their media presence and how things look, and less about the actual people on the ground who make the Library run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We cannot handle any more pilots, programs, or big ideas with the current number of staff in the branches.
