I worked at The Met

Pros

I think the opportunity to work in one of the world's greatest art museums is the best reason to work there. Working there usually gets you free admission to almost all museums in New York. Employees not working on Monday get to visit on Monday when the museum is closed to the general public. Employees also get to see previews of new exhbibitions before they open to the general public. The Met Store grants a very generous discount to employees, especially during staff sales. They offer part-timers the opportunity to buy into their health insurance plan should they need it. They have very nice career-related skills workshops. Finally, they have a decent and inexpensive cafeteria.

Cons

Like almost all non-profit art institutions, the pay for most positions is far behind what those same positions average at for-profit companies. In my area, I think there could be better communication between associates and those working in upper management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more opportunities for communication between departments even if they have no relation to each other.

    Pros

    Opportunity for creative growth and expression within the company. Excellent team building through project planning and execution. Amazing staff, upper management and performers.

    Cons

    Depending on the department, there can be some micro management challenges. Defintely nothing that a confident knowledgeable employee could not handle.
