    I have been working at EBSCO Industries full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The company strives to do what is best for team members. There has been an abundance of changes over the past few years, but in my opinion, they have been for the better. Change can be scary, but I feel like the leadership team has done a good job of communicating the strategy behind these adjustments and the vision moving forward. I am very fortunate to say that I feel like my department is an extension of my family....

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities are not plentiful in my area, but the ability to learn and grow as an expert in my field make up for it.

    Pros

    EBSCO generally tries to do right by it's employees and provides good training opportunities.

    Cons

    The biggest Con is a lack of career growth. Advancement is very slow and opportunities are few and far between.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the tactical managers who are actually closest to the work being done.

    I have been working at EBSCO Industries full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Good benefits. Just like most companies some good people some bad people.

    Cons

    Leadership problems, constant change and layoffs. Truly disturbing is the amount of pull "religion" plays in this office. Small group base business decisions on who goes to their church instead of who treats people well and does a good job. When will this be fixed? The last HR lady tried to fix but they got rid of her too.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making decisions from far away when you are unable to get the full picture. Sales was actually starting to make progress under the new President but Corporate stepped in and made the wrong call. Could have been avoided had they met with many of us in Sales prior like he did. It is so discouraging. Finally felt like we had a voice and were heard and now everything is screwed up again.
