I have been working at The British Library
Pros – Some of the staff can be very supportive and helpful. Will teach you many things.
Cons – Some of the staff won't want to teach you anything. Keep it like a guarded secret.
You generally need to "suck up" to advance or keep your head low, as someone will always give you a reputation.
They love hierarchy there and will remind you of your status frequently.
Management is seen to always be on the lookout to cut jobs, so you have to always be busy unless you are friendly with the management.
Advice to Senior Management – Appreciate your workers more. Base progression on performance not who has scratched each other's backs.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at The British Library full-time for more than 10 years
Pros – This is one of the world's greatest cultural heritage institutions, the collects are amazing and they are fantastic to work with. Really interesting projects in the digital library space.
Cons – The current economic climate is affecting the Library badly with it being down sized which is affecting morale. Can be very bureaucratic and it does take a long time for things to get done / approved.
