    I worked at EMP Museum full-time (more than 5 years)


    The title says it all - there are not many other places in Seattle (or elsewhere for that matter) where you have the opportunity to work on a variety of subject matter, or with a great set of coworkers like the EMP.


    While I was working there, I learned and grew as a employee tremendously. However, there was a very clear ceiling (both in career and salary), and if I wanted to move past it, I would need to leave. The organization attracts great people, but they all leave because there is only so far you can go there.

'Scuse me while I kiss this museum. Seattle's Experience Music Project (EMP) sprang from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen's passion for all things Jimi Hendrix. Allen owned the world's largest collection of the guitar virtuoso's memorabilia, which he wanted to share with all music fans. The idea soon mushroomed to encompass all aspects of rock music, and EMP now boasts more than 80,000 music instruments and artifacts, ranging from Bob Dylan's first electric guitar to Gene Simmons' demon KISS costume, as well as an extensive archive of sound recordings, films, photographs...
