    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Colorado Symphony full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Denver is no longer a cow town, but a promising destination for arts culture in the western states. The salaries are rising and concert attendance is at an consistent apex due to intelligent marketing and programming. This orchestra has little toxicity amongst the musicians/staff.

    Cons

    The cost of living in Denver is rising higher and faster than salaries can keep up. The current base section salary of 45k makes it impossible to own a home on your own.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Colorado Symphony (Denver, CO) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Brief. I had a short phone call confirming my interest and discussing salary. I then came in for a 1:1 interview, first with the hiring manager and then with the HR director. I rate this interview process as negative only because the organization chooses not include any team members or panel interviews. Currently employees have not voice in who gets hired here.
