    Pros

    Innovative, creative, and ambitious environment. Very rewarding, mission driven work. You really have to align with the culture of the place. It has it's pros and cons, but it's really the integral spirit of the place that drives peoples overall commitment.

    Cons

    Decision making can be lengthy and bureaucracy levels high. Opaque and silo-ed communications between departments. Require entrepreneurial and collaborative work-style with strong ability to build relationships and ask questions.

    Advice to Management

    Valuing employees with appropriate compensation and work-status for high performing employees with more transparent channels for advancement.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Exploratorium (San Francisco, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I first had a phone interview, followed by a group interview with the department director and several prospective coworkers, including the position incumbent. Although the panel's questions were challenging, I felt very comfortable and at ease—maybe too comfortable. Some questions were standardized, but much of the interview was natural and conversational. They chose to move forward with a different candidate, which worked out okay, as the position wasn't a total match for my goals.
