    I worked at EBSCO Industries full-time (More than a year)

    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 Consulting to service internal and external clients. He is a bully that doesn’t accept criticism, lacks any empathy and uses extreme vulgar language. He surrounds himself around “Yes-Men” who lack any kind of backbone. His ineffectiveness to manage budgets has led to massive layoffs, failed IT projects, poor salaries and lowered employee morale. EBSCO is now having to sale-off many of its subsidiary companies; which points to a larger problem.

    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 Information Technology.

    I worked at EBSCO Industries full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    Pros

    EBSCO has great benefits. Enjoyed working there for the most part. Excellent pay.

    Cons

    I worked at a restaurant they owned. That was not their specialty, so didn't always go smoothly. Management not always available where they should be. People not held accountable.

    Pros

    Great benefits such as insurance, profit sharing, work and life balance. Great working conditions and family environment form team members.

    Cons

    Unfair raises, no room for growth. Poor management. It seemed to be more of a buddy system. Lots of Human Resource issues.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider people based on there skill set and not just because you like the same football team, or from the same community, or are related.
