  1. Student intern review

    Former Intern - Research Intern in Saint Louis, MO
    Former Intern - Research Intern in Saint Louis, MO

    I worked at Missouri Botanical Garden as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The botanical gardens are a beautiful work environment, although my day was spent inside working on plant germination experiments.

    Everyone was very friendly and helpful and the location is convenient for students in the St. Louis area interested in ecology

    Cons

    Not sure about any further opportunities aside from research assistant work (can be relatively monotonous)

    Advice to Management

    Did not deal significantly with the Garden's upper management


  2. A great place to work. Big focus on sustainability.

    Pros

    Definitely a beautiful campus. Nice to be able to take a walk in the Garden during lunch or a break. A lively office environment. all employees receive a membership upon hire. 20% discount at gift shop and restaurant. Complimentary passes to all events. 403 B match. Great mission. Many like-minded people working together. Great community ties.

    Cons

    They offer mediocre health benefits, that are pretty expensive for the highest coverage. No paid maternity leave is a major disappointment, especially for an institution that employs so many woman. Typical "non-profit" wages for non-management positions. No opportunity for advancement in most positions.

    Pros

    The mission, the hours are okay, co-workers are usally very friendly and eco-orientated.

    Cons

    Pay scale is below normal for a non-profit. Alot of politics.

    Advice to Management

    You need to update your pay scale in order to keep good staff. Be more open with information and more consistent with policy from all depts.
