I worked at New York Convention & Visitors Bureau full-time (More than a year)
I took this job after getting offered a nice pay increase and an opportunity to expand my skills from a previous job. I would say that their pay is competitive and their benefits are on par with other companies in this sector.
The work culture is very demanding and unforgiving of any obstacles you encounter to get your job done. There's almost a sick pleasure of seeing you overcome these obstacles to meet your deadlines. This is a place for someone with very thick skin. If you don't have one when you come in, you surely will by the time you leave. The office has a Bloomberg style open layout, where you can see all your colleagues. This is supposed to promote collaboration. Instead it creates a very awkward atmosphere and invites distractions while you're working. I've never worked somewhere where people are worked until they burn out and management doesn't care. I even saw a colleague quit right on the spot because they were so frustrated. And layoffs, oh yes there are plenty of those as well. This is definitely somewhere you come to get your experience and hopefully find a new gig before you either burn out or get "let go".
