    I worked at American Conservatory Theatre

    Pros

    The artists on the stage, to the artistic director, to the development team, to the concessions employees, everyone works together to make this the best theatre experience on the west coast.

    Cons

    The pay is never as good in a not for profit as you would like, but the overall benefits package and the ability to see the best live theatre on the West Coast if not the US makes up for this, even though SF is an expensive city to live in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with your strategic plan and continue including all staff in the strategic plan workshops. this is such an important facet of making the next generation of ACT even better.

    I worked at American Conservatory Theatre full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are learning opportunities in nearly all aspects of creative and business areas.

    Cons

    Planning and communications are completely lacking from upper management. They do not value their staff or treat them well. I can't imagine that the board of directors is kept informed. I wonder if they know how inept management is at setting priorities, communicating with the staff and executing plans to increase revenue and patron loyalty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the staff. Respect the people who talk to the customers and do the daily work.
