I have been working at Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Nice to work with the artists in residence and to interact directly with patrons.

Cons

Not encouraged to get real jobs at the museum, not offered any mentorship. Interns treated like idiots. Made me want to leave the museum field.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

While I was at the de Young, the Museum was hemorrhaging staff and in a terrible transition phase without an Executive Director and with a Board that was dominated by one person terrorizing the staff. Moral was low, and there was no time for interns' development.
