    My 10 year employment with this Not for Profit Corporation was a huge disappointment

    Former Employee - Occupational Safety and Health Manager in Monterey, CA
    Former Employee - Occupational Safety and Health Manager in Monterey, CA

    I worked at Monterey Bay Aquarium full-time (more than 8 years)


    There is consistent work for somebody needing a job.
    The benefit package is average for the Monterey area.
    The Company has a name which is highly regarded in the Public Aquarium industry
    There is a Vacation policy for salaried and hourly employees
    There is a Sick Leave policy for salaried and hourly employees
    Volunteers are provided Workers' Compensation Coverage


    Management is inconsistent across the Departments
    Job Training and Safety and Health Training is Hit and Miss and neither is adequately managed nor enforced
    Promotions and realistic salary increases are scarce
    External Management Hires are frequent instead of promoting from within the core of paid employees
    Managers and Supervisors tend to distance themselves from the workforce
    There is an insufficient number of trained workers to meet the work demands which results in workplace injuries and dissatisfaction amongst the workers
    There is a lack of specific Safety and Health Training as required by OSHA Standards
    Volunteers and Interns are frequently used to replace full time, paid staff and these individuals are not required nor provided the same level of specific job and safety and health training as full time, paid employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All levels of Management need to have regular, current OSHA Responsibilities Training
    Department Managers and Supervisors need to pay attention and act on the needs and requests of the workers
    Vice Presidents need to provide Department Directors and Managers with the Staff and assets required to meet the demands of the stated Mission and Objectives as set forth by the CEO and the Governing Board of Directors
    HR needs to provide adequate staff to support the needs of the individual Departments in a timely manner

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
