    I have been working at Multnomah County Library full-time

    Pros

    -Protected by the union
    -Great medical benefits if you are 30+ hours/week
    -Friendly and supportive co-workers and managers
    -Work in an environment of learning and resource sharing

    Cons

    -Working with the public and attempting to answer and help with any question they come in with
    -Bureaucratic, so changes can move very very slow
    -No one ever gets fired even if they are a terrible employee (a con to working in a union environment)
    -A pro and a con would be there is a lot of internal promotion, but sometimes because we prefer to promote internally we have managers/administrators that are not really suited for that position
