    I worked at Spokane County Library District (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Dedicated employees that care about the mission to deliver quality library services to the community.

    Cons

    None that I can think of. I was grateful to work with an amazing group of people

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. I see you have a new Director. You couldn't have made a better choice.

    Pros

    The majority of the staff love what they do, so the atmosphere is, overall, positive. It's has family-friendly policies, an established chain of command and it's not cut-throat at all.

    Cons

    Management has been in place for several decades, there are too many of them and they are largely perceived to be a bit too rigid and set in their ways. There's no longer any 'fire in the belly' to achieve greatness.

    Advice to Management

    The regional set up among the 10 branches has proven to be divisive and effects redundancies in managers. The chain of command is top heavy and makes internal communications slow and cumbersome. We need a new model.

  3. "Positive work environment. Varied job duties. Opportunities for training and professional association involvement."
