    I have been working at Getty Trust full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Fascinating, knowledgeable coworkers; appreciative management (in the Trust, at least); clear direction and communication.

    And the little things mean a lot: Every other Friday off, onsite gym, lunchtime gallery visits, talks and tours, etc.

    Cons

    Not tons of upward growth opportunities -- if you're happy where you are, great, but some good people have to eventually leave to grow. Temporary negative (but it seems like FOREVER) is the lagging 405 construction and front-gate rebuilding that makes getting to work and going home highly frustrating.

    I have been working at Getty Trust

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers (except for the occasional run-in with a self-absorbed/important art snob staff), Great salary and benefits package (C'mon, who else covers contact lens'?!). No need for a corner office, we have the best view of any workplace in L.A. (inside and outside!) , 24 hour employee fitness center, easily accessible from all areas of L.A.

    Cons

    Occasional run-ins with self-absorbed/important art snob staff. Other than that...hmmm...oh yes, on the true downside, the breaks on my car need replaceing a bit more often due to driving down the hill all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are doing an outstanding job of restoring the Getty Trust's reputation, after a very public airing of particularly dirty laundry left laying around the premesis by the previous administration. Stay the course, the journey is far from over. Perhaps, tell the occasional self-absorbed/important art snob staff members (they are few, but are around several corners) to lighten up and say hello once in a while.
