    I have been working at The Children's Museum of Indianapolis as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, intern programming, friendly staff, store and food court discounts, year-long membership for you and a family member or friend, opportunities to meet prominent people and see spectacular exhibits for free

    Cons

    Sometimes noisy and crowded, very spread out, internships are unpaid, but you can apply for a scholarship

    I have been working at The Children's Museum of Indianapolis

    Pros

    Great insurance and paid time off. Friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    Low wages. Cost structure is looking more and more like Walmart than a cultural institution. Upper level management is overcompensated for a non-profit. Other workers struggle to survive. Little room for advancement. No maternity leave beyond federal laws. Ironically, no child care for staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support a livable wage for staff. Don't hoard all the wealth. Why are your salaries consistent with inflation while customer service workers starting hourly wage remains low?

    Internship

    I worked at The Children's Museum of Indianapolis part-time

    Pros

    The Intern Coordinator is super kind and supportive. Be sure to use her advice and resources! You will end up with a great portfolio if you diligently ask for more responsibilities.

    Cons

    Hard to come up with real work to do. Filling your time can be difficult. Asking for more responsibilities may not result in enough work to fill your day. Unpaid. A bit of necessary busy work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organization and higher expectations for interns would make their experiences much more fulfilling and challenging.

    I have been working at The Children's Museum of Indianapolis

    Pros

    You receive a free Fam+ 2 membership, tuition reimbursement even for PT staff, great benefits.

    Cons

    The schedules can get a little strange due to events at the museum.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow PT staff to have emails and an online check stub would be nice. Also, more postings of other positions in the museum to would be greatly appreciated :)
