    Pros

    The people you work with are really great, there is beautiful art in the galleries

    Cons

    Very stressful! Line managers are quite busy and very little opportunity to work on interesting projects or internal promotion.

    I worked at Tate as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The best reasons to work there are the internationally recognised status of the building, being surrounded by amazing artworks as well as amazing, like-minded people who love what they do. The experiences I had meeting visitors and speaking with them as part of These Associations just opened my heart to bursting.

    Cons

    The departments rarely get a chance to speak with other departments. I wasn't long enough to consider other jobs within the company but there seemed very little notice of them within internal noticeboards.
    I was sad to see the piece end

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to see upper management occasionally in something other than a suit. Yes, for an internationally acclaimed museum, a professional look is required but I'd like to think that some of the time the focus was Art and not just business.

    Poor pay, no opportunities and mistrust of staff

    I have been working at Tate full-time

    Pros

    - Working alongside a great collection and exhibitions is very rewarding.

    - Free entry to other museums and galleries.

    - Tate brand attracts interesting and creative colleagues.

    Cons

    - Sadly a management culture of mistrust and bullying exists at Tate. Dignity and Respect policy does nothing to actually tackle the issue only ticks boxes for management.

    - Often overworked, micro-managed and staff concerns ignored.

    - High turnover of staff.

    - Very poor pay in comparison to comparable jobs in the culture sector. With 4 years of pay freezes, pay has fallen 20% in real terms. No recognition for dedicated staff, low team moral and virtually no career opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff , value and invest in them and create opportunities. A culture of mistrust, micromanaging and bullying destroys moral especially at a time when wages are falling.

    Pros

    They are very friendly and make you feel comfortable. They could arrange an interview very fast.

    Cons

    Interview went very well. The recruiter was positive and said that he would find me a job very easily. Afterwards I didn't hear anything.
