    Pros

    The collection and building are beautiful.

    Cons

    The organization is a mess and rude across nearly every level. High level of tension, and everyone seems to hate each other.

    I worked at Asian Art Museum full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Passionate colleagues and an inspirational work environment. You'll never get bored. There are always new challenges and initiatives.

    Cons

    There is very little room for promotion; the museum does no have the resources to effectively support professional development. Middle managers are typically not trained as managers and therefore aren't necessarily skillful managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prioritize improving organizational effectiveness. Provide management training for managers.

    I have been working at Asian Art Museum

    Pros

    Dedicated, talented, and hard-working staff. Amazing and intelligent people work here. World-class art collection. Recently renewed vision. Respect for work/life balance.

    Cons

    Weak financial position. Little opportunity for career growth (salaries frozen, no promotion from within). A bit of a culture of information hoarding. Can be bureaucratic.
