    I have been working at Georgia Aquarium full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The work is easy, The people are interesting, The pay is higher than minimum wage

    Cons

    You will be required to work outside in the cold and the heat. In the cold portable hater may not be functioning and management may not care to fix them. The is no room for advancement within the department. Hours fluctuation severely seasonally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and spend more time getting to know the people in the lowest positions. Senior management does not concern themselves with the affairs of the lowest workers and instead allows for middle management (directors, who are themselves out of the loop) to create an inaccurate but adequate reality. If senior management (VPs and higher) took the time out to role play in the lowest positions for two days out of the year, I assure you there would be list of sweeping changes that could greatly increase innovation, employee development, employee retention and overall efficiency.
