slow, public sector job

Operator (Current Employee) New York, NY

Prosvery laid back. room for growth for junior staff.

ConsI work in ITG and find it a bit behind everything in terms of technology. It's a small organization, so your exposure to tech is limited. certainly no the creme of the crop..

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good cause, Excellent benefits, Rigid Work Environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    I worked at New York Public Library full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Great benefits, Excellent opportunities for librarians working in specialized fields, Unusually high compensation for librarians, Supportive… Cons: Lots of uncertainty about funding and constant threat of lay-offs. Evenings and weekends are usually required… Advice to Senior Management: The flat organizational structure seems to be more of a myth than a reality. The only evidence I saw of it in my tenure… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
