No opinion of CEO

I worked at Exploratorium part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Pay is above minimum wage Amazing people Amazing museum and learning space Wonderful team to be a part of Procedure in place that made it easy to work in different positions

Cons

Full time was considered 32.5 hours and could be distributed over 5 days They hired WAY too many people in anticipation for their move and subsequently people's hours were cut. They seem to have this figured out now. When it was slow, they day dragged on

    Pros

    The Exploratorium is a great place to work if you're early in your career. You'll be exposed to a lot of different experiences and opportunities. The people are by far their greatest asset. It's a fun and eclectic culture.

    Cons

    If you need a structured environment, this is not the place for you! In general, there is a real lack of leadership and experience at the management level.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge your strengths and your weaknesses. Learn to listen to the people around you who have the experience you lack.
