"Employees are expendable"

Current Employee - Librarian
Current Employee - Librarian
No opinion of CEO

Pros

In a highly competitive industry, B&T is doing what it can to stay afloat, but often at the expense of their human capital

Cons

No raises in 2012, and a further statement to employees that further cost cuts will be made; will one or more sites be closed as a result?

Advice to Management

While being a private company lessens the need for disclosure in the public domain, this should not extend to keeping your own employees in the dark for long periods of time

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good co-workers
    Good for people who like books
    Good for folks not looking to advance very far

    Cons

    Severe lack of communication between corporate entities and groups/departments.
    The company invests in a lot of upper management headcount, but gives little relief to the people doing the day-to-day functions that keep the company going.
    Horizontal structure makes it nearly impossible to advance.
    Raises are also non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Workload expectations are near impossible sometimes. Please pay attention to the people in lower level positions. They are a valuable asset to the company, not disposable drones.
