Museum Associate

Museum Associate (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

ProsCompensation 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.

ConsIts 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 Senior ManagementIf 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
