I worked at Getty Trust full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Supposedly, every other Friday off! Not while I was there though, as I had to put in overtime and come in on my "off Fridays!"

Cons

Too much politics, spying and backstabbing. Accounting/payroll & G/L department have their share of low educated and/or incompetent members handling mid-to-high level management duties. Payroll walks around like they own the place just because they print your checks for the work YOU put in. It's few members hardly put in more than 3-4 hours of workday. Lazy slugs within Procurement department. HR polices you, and calls you in for every asinine thing. Not at all what I expected from a museum environment. The environment is diseased at its core The place doesn't nurture; instead, it suffocates you!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You can't run the place like a mob organization ~ giving monetary rewards to the ones who slug away at their jobs ~ while others put in 110% and get no recognition at all.

    I worked at Getty Trust

    Pros

    Views are good. Building is clean. Every second Friday off (although you make up for it by longer hours the other days). Lots of good people to work with.

    Cons

    Lots of incompetence especially among the senior management of the museum, conservation, foundation, and research institutes. professional qualifications are considered far inferior to art history education. senior management is bloated and self-serving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid of having honest outside audits and reviews of programs and organizational/ business matters. Consider a board of outsiders responsible for each institute and that has power of veto over director appointments and funding of major projects. Outside review is critical to success; without it, organizations survive with nepotism, oligarchy, and even tyranny.
