    Pros

    I love working with a group of dedicated, ultra-intelligent people with BIG ideas and, for the most part, the resources to implement those ideas.

    Cons

    Financially, OMSI has it tough. Therefore job security is not really known here. Lay offs are frequent and deep.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Keep fighting for every dollar. Someday, we will reach more stable financial footing.

    Pros

    The company really cares about its employees and it's FUN to work at a museum designed for kids (and adults who like to explore and learn). All the employees, including the managers, are super nice and welcoming.

    Cons

    My only complaint was the lack of breaks. Because of the number of kids in the classes and the low number of teachers per class, if one teacher takes a break, then the other teacher is overwhelmed. So we never took breaks, but really needed them! And the management basically enforced this no-break policy, until someone complained and HR made the managers give us breaks.
