I am one of those people thinking of accepting a position at one of the
oursourced libraries at an AFB. The current librarian is retiring so I
will not be evicting her from her position. I do have several
reservations about accepting a job from an outsourcer. One concern is
contract work. What happens when another outsourcer underbids this
company? Is there any kind of security with this setup? What about
benefits? Another concern is that the people working under me will be
working for a different company or the gov't ( I am not sure who anyone
works for) and I don't like the fact that I will have people who I am
supervising that is not accountable for any kind of performance review by
me, their "superviser"..... it all seems kind of hokey ... a real can of
worms. Anyway, I would appreciate anyone's thoughts on this situation.
Please don't flame me. I haven't accepted anything yet. I am just trying
to figure out what will be best for the remaining 10 years of my career
Please mail me direct and not to the list.
