Pros

Not all bad for a bibliophile--you get to find books (and other materials) that you didn't even know existed. Employees can buy books at a discount (small though it may be), although it takes forever for the books to get to you.

Cons

Sweatshop salaries. Disconnected senior managers. Too many longtime employees wedded to old ways of doing things. The least diverse place I have ever seen.

Advice to Management

For God's sake, pay the poor people more. Redefine job categories. Once you've done that, find somone who can write better advertisements that truly reflect the nature of the advertised jobs.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    YBP is a highly successful company that provides employees with promotions if managers see that you have great work ethic and you are a great team player.

    Cons

    The pay rate at YBP Library Services is nothing that is exceptionally great. Employees do not get pay raises that often.

    Advice to Management

    I feel that management should consider increasing employees' salaries. They are an extremely profitable company and I think they can afford to be paying their employees a little bit better.
