THE MUSEUM EXPERIENCE
Home to a coral reef, four-story living rainforest, immersive planetarium shows and more, this must-see ...
I worked at California Academy of Sciences full-time (More than a year)
Best scientists and the mission at the Academy is amazing. Scientists are strongly devoted to their work and research. Great employee programs and Academy 101. Great to be part of a long-standing institution. Very humble CEO.
Non-profit environment can be tough. Small staff = more work = overworked = drained and burnt out. Some teams have very bad managers, so I do recommend but it depends on which team you are joining.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at California Academy of Sciences (San Francisco, CA).
Phone Interview followed by an interview with a group designers. I presented a few projects through a keynote presentation, they showed me some examples of work that they would expect me to do, asked questions about projects and skill level with certain programs. They wouldn't have an honest conversation with me about salary, and gave me an extremely rude look/answer when I spoke about my salary expectations. I think this situation could've been handled much better.
