    I have been working at National Aquarium In Baltimore full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Being part of a mission-driven organization, working with people who truly try to live the values every day, the smart people I work with, great benefits (generous time off and excellent medical coverage)

    Cons

    budget constraints (normal for any nonprofit, but still frequently frustrating)

    Recommends

    A fun environment if you're a visitor -- an employee? Not so much.

    I worked at National Aquarium In Baltimore part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You get to see the animals all of the time. That's the only upside and thing to make you happy during the day.

    Cons

    Lack of respect from the department leaders, CTO, and others. Lack of direction and wasteful spending. Mistreatment of workers. Compensation is a joke for the amount of work you do and there are too many rules and regulations. I imagine it would be better as a conservationist dealing with animals but their IT department is a disaster.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the CTO. He has a total disrepect for employees and potential employees. He will single handedly run the company the to ground with his poor attitude.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Historic aquarium with some great exhibits, and expansion projects.

    Cons

    The staff in my department had no resect for their leaders or newcomers, which caused rifts in the team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The attitudes of the staff need to be managed better.

    Neutral Outlook
