Pros

Great benefits package includes 4 weeks vacation, extremely liberal 403(b) employee match, great medical/dental coverage.

Cons

Environment tends to not be welcoming to outsiders (those not from library profession). Upper management tends to operate in a very "reactive" vs "proactive" manner. Experience, work ethic and proven skills don't seem to be taken into consideration regarding promotions, raises, etc.

    Pros

    Lyrasis is big compared to some other regional library nonprofits, which may have certain advantages. Some great people work there.

    Cons

    Management is insular and not open to other ways of seeing things. In general, the year 2010 is a bad time to work for a library nonprofit due to the economic downturn.

    Advice to Management

    They couldn't hear it constructive criticism back last year, so I have no confidence that they'd hear it this year.

    I have been working at LYRASIS full-time

    Pros

    I've worked for LYRASIS for almost 10 years and can honestly say the company is heading in a new direction. Whether that's good or bad remains to be seen....

    Cons

    If you're not from the library world, this experience will be eye-opening.
