    I worked at Metropolitan Museum of Art part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was great for part-time hours
    Getting to go to the museum everyday to work!
    The teams, mostly friendly people and great environment
    Being around such creative and artistic minds

    Cons

    The museum is old, so they work in older ways if you come from a start up or more of a corporate world. I never thought I would miss working at a place so much. I'd work here again and again!

    Advice to Management

    Keep being wonderful and open minded to your employees, it's much appreciated.
