    I have been working at Kent District Library part-time

    Pros

    No late fees
    Usually friendly staff
    Pay is decent (average)

    Cons

    Major disconnect between branches
    Major disconnect between branch staff and upper management
    Not a priority to promote internally anymore
    Few opportunities to really move up unless you are a loud, active person in the organization who has big ideas and is very loud about them
    Management has lofty ideas about how to be the best library system in the world without much thought to how to implement these ideas and how they will affect staff, etc.
    Very few benefits for part timers

    Advice to Management

    Don't just look for those who are outgoing and loud with their ideas. There are plenty of people who are "career introverts" who can make a difference in the organization just the same. These people deserve recognition as well - they are often those who quietly do the jobs no one else wants to do without looking for awards.
