    Pros

    Good benefits. My co-workers are awesome & you cannot beat the job security. My immediate supervisor is also the best boss I've ever had, very encouraging & puts people in a position to shine.

    Cons

    Pay is low. The upper management (Vice Provosts & above) couldn't care less about the people who make this university run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some concern for your employees, we are more than METRICS.

    Good to Bad: UTA Library is a toxic workplace

    Current Employee - Classified Library Staff  in  Arlington, TX
    Current Employee - Classified Library Staff in Arlington, TX

    Pros

    As with all libraries, the staff are there to help people. The institution has many resources in place to help students, faculty, and the public. This is in spite of the current state of disorganization.

    Cons

    The library "reorganized" in the summer of 2013. Many of the staff were placed in jobs they are not trained to do and are unhappy to find themselves in. Those placed in new high-level jobs are perceived to reach these positions via favoritism. The turnover rate is very high, and those hired new are coming in at low salaries to fill positions in dispirited departments. This is a department of the university to avoid for the time being.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let the door hit you in the butt on the way out. This was NOT a good move to make the library extraordinary, it had just the opposite effect. The staff are collectively embarrassed and depressed by the state of affairs in our wonderful library right now.
