Like joining the priesthood

Curatorial Assistant (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsThe prestige is, of course, enormous. Go to a cocktail party and say you work at MoMA and all of a sudden the room lights up. In the curatorial department, you'll meet everyone - or at least you'll be near everyone; you might not get to talk to anyone at all if you don't throw some elbows.

ConsNeurotic in the extreme. Colleague approach their work with the intensity of bankers but with none of the salaries. Too big and too small at the same time - communication is poor, and there's no real opportunity for advancement. Punishingly low salaries, of course, but no worse than anywhere else in the New York art world.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your younger staff. We're smarter than you give us credit for, and if you gave us a bit more leeway you'd find we can thrive.
