    I worked at SirsiDynix full-time

    Pros

    Helping libraries is a noble cause

    Cons

    Private equity backed. This means they continually reusuce r&d spend. A tech company who reduces r&d spend each year won’t be a tech company much longer

    Advice to Management

    Scrap the messaging. Fix the products you have and build something that is actually modern and cool for the future
