I worked at New York Public Library full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Wonderful mission and employees. I gained amazing experience and working with the crazy, demanding and amazing patrons. I miss it every day.

Cons

Current management is not supporting employee success. They are trying to implement much needed standards, but are not giving people the support needed to meet their goals. Too little money and time, too little control of the working situation. Glad every day to be out of there.

Advice to Management

Hold people to high standards, but give them respect.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    you can read books for free if you don't have anything to do. You can make great friends there as well.

    Cons

    It can be very boring and the people you have to deal with can also be annoying if they don't follow instructions.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you're doing. Anything wrong that occurs isn't really your fault, it depends on where the library is located.
