Comfortable, low pressure atmosphere but a clear expectation of competence

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsThe benefits package is generous and the performance expectations are fair. The Met's standards are high, and while the hiring process is competitive, the working atmosphere is notably respectful and collegial.

ConsGenerally, salaries are low compared to the salaries of similar positions in the for-profit sector. There is little room for promotion or career advancement within each department, although working at the Met (even as a volunteer) could presumably be a helpful resume boost when searching for a higher position at another institution or company.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement could be more decisive in parcelling out tasks and organizing time. Many managers sometimes hoard work instead of distributing tasks among lower-level employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
