    I have been working at LYRASIS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment, the employees work as a team in great collaboration to provide services to the Libraries and Archives communities. This non-profit functions as a for profit in terms of pay. They pay at and above market rate. Excellent benefit plans, even better than some larger organization.

    Cons

    I wish the organization was larger and a straight path to upward mobility was possible. However, things changes rapidly here and there are now additional areas for employment that never existed before.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at LYRASIS.

    Interview

    The interview process is unique. There is a one on one interview then a group interview with the department staff you will be working with. This gives not only the applicant but staff an opportunity to ask questions that may not have been asked by HR regarding the specific job you are applying for. An excellent process that I would recommend other companies to do.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to provide an example of how I have contributed to a previous employer's goals specifically and what steps I took to achieve that goal.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was ready to accept and decided to sleep on it and I told HR I would call the next day. A few hours later I received a call from HR offering more money to take the job that day. I was not holding out for more money but they knew they would get a valuable employee and did not want to miss the opportunity and I did not want to miss out on working for a great company focused on the work- family life balance.
