Strong non-profit with growth opportunities but ceilings are easy to reach and political red-tape can bog down progress.

    I worked at San Francisco Symphony full-time

    Pros

    Perks include tickets to concerts (of course) and being part of a highly professionalized arts organization. The people I worked with are smart and dedicated, creative thinkers and doers.

    Cons

    As a non-profit perennially being asked to do more with less.
