Job was really easy, but the heat really drains you. They gave lousy raises.

    I have been working at Houston Zoo full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The team that I am a part of is passionate about what we do and our supervisor encourages us to take the reigns for our professional development.
    Challenges are unique and fun, and the departments give constructive feedback.
    The work environment is positive and has a good balance of professionalism and playfulness.
    There are many employees here that believe in the continued growth of the Zoo, for employees and guests alike, and are proactive in making things happen. Being a part of that is really exciting!

    Cons

    We are a non-profit organization, which means budgets can be tight for improvements to employee facilities, but we make due with what we have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rightly invest trust in your talented team and you will not be disappointed.

    I have been working at Houston Zoo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Creativity is fostered and new ideas are encouraged and implemented
    The Zoo is always growing/expanding, offering more for employees and the community
    Employee culture is "fun" and staff are invested in/passionate about what they do

    Cons

    Communication can sometimes be difficult between departments because of physical distance or difference in working hours, but great strides on this have been made since I have been there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job - the Zoo has grown and changed so much in recent years. Keep looking toward the future and cultivating a culture for employees that encourages growth and fosters a passion for animals and conservation.
