    I have been working at EBSCO Industries full-time

    Pros

    EBSCO is a great company with great benefits.

    Cons

    The current CIO puts on a good face for those he feels he needs to keep as allies like HR and Board members, but treats anyone he feels that he outranks in a rude manner. He is the picture of narcissism. He even parks in an area reserved for Engineering because it’s close to the building, rather than parking in the lot like everyone else. He won’t hesitate to throw someone under the bus to make himself look good. ...

    Advice to Management

    David Walker should ask around for the truth about how his CIO treats people under him, as well as how he treats people in other departments who he sees as being beneath him.

      As we strive to continuously improve, it is important to hear unique perspectives from all of our team members. While we are glad to hear you enjoy the many benefits we offer, it’s sad to hear your perspective regarding layoffs. Admittedly, we have been through quite a lot of change ...

      Pros

      EBSCO employees are very nice and supportive. Great benefits and retirement.

      Cons

      The current CIO Mike Gorrell is completely incompetent & single handedly destroying EBSCO Industries. Under his poor leadership and vision, EBSCO Corporate Information Technology has had consistent lay-offs for 3 straight years due to bad decisions. And now that Mike has failed EBSCO industries as a leader and wasted millions of EBSCO dollars, he now has a devious scheme to start a new company within EBSCO named OXBI...

      Advice to Management

      The Board of Directors should take immediate action in removing Mike Gorrell from the position of CIO. Mike is wasting millions of dollars due to poor decision making and lack of leadership skills. Please have an external audit performed to track Mike’s erroneous spending. EBSCO is in need of better Corporate Information Technology leadership and the board should remove Mike Gorrell and his direct reports within Corporate...

      I worked at EBSCO Industries full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      I had a good experience overall. I worked for a small office in upstate NY that was owned by Ebsco. They offered great benefits, a 401K, and regular raises each year.

      Cons

      I did not feel that I had many opportunities for moving up in my department because we were such a small office and most of the new employees were hired in another state where the company was based out of.

      We do not like reading that you think we might value employees less today than in the past. We know that our success tomorrow is driven by the people within our organization today. We are striving to create leaders at all levels within our company.
