Great organization, going through a rough time

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I worked at Getty Trust

ProsBeautiful campus, wonderful people to work with. Benefits were nice and affordable. Because most people never left the grounds during working hours, there was a lot of informal communication between the departments.

ConsSeveral growing pains of a rather young organization. Low moral among those who had been there for a long time and kept seeing their perks taken away. Lots of layoffs even though their endowment is in the billions. Made for a stressful atmosphere and a constant "who's next?" fear.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more transparent. Let employees feel as if they have some sort of input when it comes to big decisions. Be grateful for such a dedicated staff.

Disfunctional asylum

N/A Affraid of Senior Management Revenge (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I have been working at Getty Trust


Pros: Stay away unless you cant find your place in the "normal" world. The Getty seems to be a good place for those that can't fit… Cons: It's a dysfunctional asylum, everyone seems to be a veteran of either a mental institution or a sociopath farm. The politics are beyond any reasonable… Advice to Senior Management: Change starts at home. Start showing the slightest trace of integrity… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
