I have been working at The British Library full-time (Less than a year)
It's a great experience working with a unique collection and some great minds.
If you have a good relationship with your manager you'll get access to great training and potential for advancement.
Like other none profit/civil service jobs where the 'bottom line' isn't the motivating factor office politics and bullying is unavoidable.
There are great opportunities but you are at the mercy of your managers. Make sure you cultivate a good relationship, otherwise your achievements will go unacknowledged.
As of 2013 many employees are now on fixed-term contracts.
Advice to Management
Motivate and acknowledge your employees' contributions and work with the unions to combat bullying culture.
Retain talented staff by clearly informing them of training opportunities.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at The British Library.
