    Pros

    Relaxed work environment and dress code.

    Cons

    There isn't much emphasis on staff level input.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more internal growth development and reward the internal promotions as opposed to paying more for external new hires.

    I have been working at ProQuest full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Low stress, leave-work-at-the-office gig. Can wear headphones most of the day. Dress code is super, super lax; you'll see everything from smart business casual to sweats and sneakers. Pretty generous vacation time (lots of newer people just got a whole additional week for next year.) Insurance covers same-sex/domestic partners. Nice, new-ish office interior, if you're lucky enough to not be stuck in the basement. The free coffee isn't half bad.

    Cons

    Positions requiring a university degree and analytic/writing/coding skills pay just a few bucks more than retail -- pretty demoralizing. Can be an isolating environment. So many people have worked here together for 15-20 years that things are pretty set in stone, socially. Little real collaboration so it's tough to get to know anyone. Still better than covering a circulation desk if you're a new LIS grad, but if you're young, want to make work friends, go to happy hour? Probably not the place for you.

    (Oh, and if the pet 'insurance' seems like a cool, Google-esque perk, don't be too excited -- it's a discount program that's basically useless.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a real mentoring/career development program for lower-level employees.
