I have been working at OMSI full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The prestige of working at a place everyone loves. Feel good factor about working with kids.

Cons

Lack of focus. Museum in disrepair with funds put towards projects that most visitors will never experience. Teams don't work well together. Managers not held accountable. Senior management don't appear to ever be in agreement with each other.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop trying to be all things to all people and focus.

    I worked at OMSI

    Pros

    - Good, fun atmosphere
    - Great people, effective at what they do
    - Rewarding work
    - Free entrance to museum

    Cons

    - Job security depends on economy. Lots of layoffs over the past couple years, but the ship seems to be righting itself as the economy gets better.
    - Some politics depending on your department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You did what you had to to survive the recession. Listen to the customers better and OMSI's future will be bright.
