Pros

The pay starts out pretty decent! For a basic "minimum wage" job, the pay is above L.A. average. The people were extremely friendly, never had any bad encounters with other staff. Gorgeous place to work, every day I had an amazing view! Good schedules, every other weekend you had 3 days off. Discounts on food!

Cons

Hours not good for part-time, but you eventually have the opportunity to move up to full-time. Tasks can be repetitive, but that's customer service, take it or leave it! Can't think of any major complaints!

    Pros

    Beautiful location, great benefits, some brilliant people.

    Cons

    We're not saving lives but conserving art...let's have fun doing great work. Cut through the non-profit political games.

    Pros

    Compensation is good off the bat for your position. Instead of starting small they start you according to the max your dept. can spend for your position or what it has for its fiscal budget which is usually divided up pretty fair. The grounds are unbelievable and the people that come through are really cool.

    Cons

    Its a world class museum run completely by really good Artists who don't really have any business management training. I work in Visitor Services and not one of the 15 managers,supervisors, leads, or assistants have any formal business management training. It used to be the perfect place to work until the recession. Morale is low now, they are not hiring at all in the many museum sections besides the bookstore, and they are not promoting within in my very large dept. They have a record of hiring non-qualified / lost managers throughout the entire trust (which means both the Getty Center and Villa) and its a shame because this is the most prestigious museums you will ever see.

    Advice to Management

    If I were to say one thing they need to do to better is only hire people with a combination of proven leadership skills with equal education completion in a business setting and not just artists who usually come in with some emotional problems.
