    Good people. Insane management.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are some good people working at Ex Libris. The really excellent ones don't stay around too long. Dress code is very casual.

    ConsAtmosphere of a start-up, even though the company started in the 1980's, but with none of the benefits of a startup. Frantic, unrealistic work schedules. Complete and utter inability of upper management to set any priorities, whatsoever. There is only one classification of work at Ex Libris: emergency! If there were a motto here, it would be: "There is never time to do it right, but there's always time to fix it." (That time to fix it will 100% be after hours, weekends, etc., which is frustrating. Very few, "emergencies," would ever happen if anything were ever done correctly in the first place, but there's no time for that, and higher management simply does not listen to anyone).

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire everyone above team leader/immediate manager and start over. The entire culture of the company needs some kind of intervention. The working environment commonly and consistently drives away top talent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Awful

    Programmer Analyst

    Programmer Analyst (Former Employee) Des Plaines, IL

    ProsThere is a lot of great people to work with. One is able to make many lifetime friends. In addition, there is many different technologies in use as well as an easy access to all kinds of learning tools. Lastly, one is able to travel to make cool places. Overall, it is the perfect environment to learn and to make friends.

    ConsThere were many unexpected layoffs all the time. In addition to the unexpected layoff, there was some poor communication between HQ and Des Plaines office, not allowing many people to get to know each other in other offices. Also, there was little upward mobility, making it hard to sometimes mobilize oneself and to carry through on everything one hopes to.
