I worked at Getty Trust full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The setting, the art, diverse workforce. I worked at the GRI for nearly 9 years, almost straight out of college. I felt lucky to work in a department which allowed me to interact with the curators and art--a dream job for a long time. Also the GRI is a library and research center and so the exposure to rare and new books on architecture and art was a privilege.

Cons

Byzantine management structure that makes communication, direct action, any spontaneous problem solving difficult. Most distressing to more ambitious folks is that upward mobility rarely happens.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more innovative and don't sweat the details. Stop micro-managing everything.

    I have been working at Getty Trust full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and good pay. Beautiful place to work and some decent people. I would recommend students to work here because the Getty is very flexible to students and offers tuition reimburse.

    Cons

    Hard to advance to other department if qualified, a lot of politics, and favoritism. Can be back breaking if you have to do a lot of standing. Depending on who you are and who you know your voice will not be heard.

    Pros

    Every other Friday off, the week between Christmas and New Years off, flexible hours, free gym, beautiful surroundings, high overall job satisfaction,

    Cons

    Procurement - terrible management (a case study in what not to do), low employee morale, micro management to the nth degree, sub par training, HR and upper management turn a blind eye to years of complaints and high employee turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the Procurement Manager
