    I worked at Denver Museum of Nature & Science full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Able to carry out innovative plans and ideas at times
    Most people are open to change and new ideas and programs
    Most people are very helpful and cooperative
    Learned a ton and accomplished things that I'm proud of with some wonderful people.
    For my field, pay was competitive.
    Good benefits.
    Some opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Can be very hierarchical.
    Behaves like a big bureaucracy at times.
    No tuition assistance programs available.
    Management rules by more of a "top-down" methodology.
    Inter-departmental collaboration can be stifiled at times for no apparent reasons.
    Institution hasn't done much in the way of climate change programming especially when compared to competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Open up lines of communication between management and direct reports and find actionable items that can be agreed upon and implement them so direct reports feel valued.
    Don't vest power in management-only circles, delegate more.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Denver Museum of Nature & Science (Denver, CO) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Initially I received a screening call from the department head. Then I had an interview with her and the Office Manager through Skype (because I was in vacation in New Orleans - it was so nice of them to Skype me!) The final interview was a group interview with 7 great people. The same day I got a call with an offer.

    The process takes time because this is a very busy time for the museum and let me tell you - these people are busy and working hard! Wonderful experience.
