    I have been working at EBSCO full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits package is hard to beat and includes paid maternity leave. It's a stable company with a good profit-sharing program in place of a traditional 401K.

    Cons

    I work for a subsidiary that changes direction too frequently and can't seem to keep a steady, long-term team. Because the company is so sales-focused, it seems to lose sight of how other activities long morale-boosting and effective public relations contribute to the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about the little people who work hard every day to keep the place running.

    I worked at EBSCO 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

    they let me work remotely

    Cons

    Poor management structure; ultra-cliquey; Manager was not open to suggestions and took any criticism personally. In 2 years of working remotely, my boss answered her phone once- every other call she let go to VM. Emails were answered though. Micro-management at its best.
