I have been working at Holocaust Memorial Museum full-time (less than an year)Pros
- It feels great to be working for such an important institution; that both continues the memory of the millions of people who's lives were affected by the holocaust, but also educating on how to prevent genocide in the future. Teaching how it can happen anywhere, to any advanced and educated group of people.
- The benefits are pretty amazing.
- Half of the 400-500 person staff is direct federal employees, half is through donations to the museum, but all get great government benefits.
- Contrary to what outsiders often speculate, it is a positive place to work despite the heavy content. People seem happy and cheery.
- Lots of great people. And there are survivors volunteering here to get to know and hear their story. It doesn't get any more special than that.
- Beautiful location on the National Mall.
- Great flexibility for a quality work life balance. They value people and respect people here - thus should be expected from the content we deal with.
- Supportive of professional developmentCons
Not a lot of dining or post-work options in the immediate area, but at least there is a Museum Cafe that employees get a discount at.RecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO
