    I worked at Autry National Center

    Pros

    A free museum membership, gift store and restaurant discount to all employees. The on-site restaurant is superior.

    Cons

    Low pay. No opportunity for advancement. No communication with upper level staff members. The Human Resources department is the worst ever! I am a seasoned employee with over 20 years of office and fundraising experience. The best they could pay me was $14.hr. After one year of busting my ass I received a 2% raise. Yes, folks that is .25/hour. The top level managers receive $150,000 - $250,000/year but my part-time job only paid 1/10th of that. Plus, no benefits. If they sent the FT staff home early for holidays they thought they were heros; but to the PT and Hourly staff that meant our paychecks were cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider ALL Employees when making decisions like raises, holiday office closings and bonuses. Just because someone is PT or Hourly does not mean they should be treated like a second class citizen. A 2% across the board salary increase means $3K or $5K annually to you; but only .25/hour to a PT or Hourly employee. Just because the economy sucks does not mean you can take advantage of your employees and give them low wages; and tell them they should be happy to have a job. This is why I left. This is why I saw employees dropping like flies when I worked there.

    Good. No Mobility

    Pros

    Beautiful work setting. Excellent programming and opportunities for professional development. Fun subject matter. Driving to Griffith Park is not the worst place to drive to every day.

    Cons

    part-time hours, no upward mobility. Consistently take work home in order to finish curriculum development projects. Treated at times like Education is the least important department in the museum.
