I have been working at Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco as an intern (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 Management

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.

    over work, won't let you claim overtime, no reviews on your work until it is too late.

    meet with your employees to discuss their job performance, work out problems together.

    Pros

    The art, most of the staff, the energy of working in a great institution.

    Cons

    Low staff morale, institutional dysfunction, staff are undervalued in some departments while incompetence is tolerated in others.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are one of your most valuable resources. Replacing good ones, and tolerating bad ones, both cost money and time.
