    Student intern review

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

    I worked at Missouri Botanical Garden as an intern (less than an 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 ManagementAdvice

    Did not deal significantly with the Garden's upper management

  2.  

    A great place to work. Big focus on sustainability.

    I have been working at Missouri Botanical Garden full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.
