    I have been working at EBSCO Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You will be hard pressed to find a company that does more for their employees on a regular basis to insure their success and well being, encouraging team work and personal growth consistently.

    Cons

    Not really a negative thing, but some employees have been in the same work environment for many, many years - thus change does not come easily and skepticism naturally catches a ride. This shouldn't affect new progress, just slow it a little in taking place - but overall a reasonable trade off for loyalty.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up your interest and communications in a visible way, everyone appreciates it.

    I have been working at EBSCO Industries full-time

    Pros

    I love working at EBSCO because we are highly committed to collaboration and there are so many opportunities to learn more and develop new skills. My department is very team and results-oriented, so the relationships between coworkers are deep and respectful.

    Cons

    Logistics are one of the biggest cons to be honest. We are pretty far down 280 so once you're at work you probably aren't leaving unless you need to.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to offer opportunities for education and employee autonomy. That is what I love most about working at EBSCO.
