    I worked at Getty Trust full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice facilities
    Steady pay
    Limited overtime
    Sick pay
    Standard vacation
    Average benefits
    Free training and advancement to help you find a better job after!
    Some other perks but not really worth while considering how much money the Trust has and how much better it could be.

    Cons

    If you started at the Getty back in the early 2000's it was great. Not so much anymore
    Very corporately structured for a non-profit
    Huge difference in pay from management positions to ground floor entry level.
    Limited advancement
    Incompetent people in manager and supervisor positions.
    Micromanagement
    Bureaucracy
    Unusual procedures and work policies only seen at Getty.
    Weird culture
    Revolving door workplace

    Pros

    Met some great co-workers who have remained friends. Pretty views, the art.

    Cons

    Nowhere to go. Doesn't matter how many degrees you have or languages you speak- your initiative, hard work and suggestions at improvement are not rewarded and mine was even discouraged in a "you're rocking the boat" kind of way. Pay is low. Stagnant atmosphere. HR is a nightmare. Hierarchy is absurd with multiple levels of supervisors stumbling over each other.. Pay is laughable - you can make more at In n Out Burger. Everyone was working overtime, all the time to make up for low pay. At first they offered benefits - that were taken away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value and listen to your staff and pay them what they're worth.

    Pros

    Good benefits and free access to two of the best museums in the Los Angeles Area. Also the alternative work schedule is great. Parking is free.

    Cons

    No chance to move up or get promoted. Getting to work is tough unless you live in brentwood, because of the the location. Its off the busiest freeway in the world 405.

    The corrosive effect of money on a non-profit

    I have been working at Getty Trust

    Pros

    Being part of an organization that shares and cares for some of the great works of art in history. You're helping to educate and bring art to the public.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, ethically-questionable senior staff promotions and salaries. Bad managers promoting other bad managers based on the candidate's ambition rather than competency. A PhD in Art History doesn't necessarily make someone a good manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something because you should and not simply because you have the money to do so. The Getty's money is its Achilles heel. Trust your staff. This distrust is causing very low morale - especially among junior staff.
