    I have been working at National Baseball Hall of Fame full-time

    Pros

    Very family oriented and somewhat flexible. For baseball fans, this is where history resides.

    Cons

    Not-for-profit. Staff success is sometimes based on museum attendance, which is difficult to control in a down economy.

    Former Employee - Multimedia Intern in Cooperstown, NY

    I worked at National Baseball Hall of Fame as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly staff, beautiful city, and you're surrounded by the greats of the game all day long!

    Cons

    No autographs or pictures with any of the hall of famers. As a huge baseball fan, what could be an amazing perk sometimes is a letdown. But I understand why.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change the internship program. I've had a few since and none of them compared.

    Former Employee - Visitor Services in Cooperstown, NY

    I worked at National Baseball Hall of Fame full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It was cool to see all of the history and get a chance to see some of Baseball's greats. As a baseball fan, it was very interesting.

    Cons

    Visitor Services can be boring and tedious. Like any visitor service job - you have to deal with annoying questions. Walking the floors gets pretty boring after you have done it 100x.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was relaxed

    I have been working at National Baseball Hall of Fame part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You will hardly ever feel like you worked too much in one day.

    Cons

    You sometimes become incredibly bored because of how boring and repetitive everything is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Include the visitor services staff in more of the special events.

    I worked at National Baseball Hall of Fame

    Pros

    - Most employees are very passionate about their jobs
    - Opportunities to meet Hall of Famers and see artifacts up close

    Cons

    The small size of Cooperstown and the surrounding towns might be problematic for young professionals looking for peers to hang out with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really don't have any advice for the management. I enjoyed my experience there and I believe it will serve me well in the future.

    I worked at National Baseball Hall of Fame

    Pros

    Great access to baseball artifacts and passionate people, along with passionate visitors. Really get to appreciate the structure. A professional organization.

    Cons

    Can be very repetitive on the day to day basis and can also get a bit old with some of the more obnoxious visitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say keep focusing on creating positive work opportunities and environments for employers. Some seem very indifferent and this reflects poorly on the organization.
