I worked at New England Aquarium full-time
All of the people working here are passionate and intelligent. The Aquarium itself is excellent and inspiring. Employees benefit from a relatively flexible work environment.
The relatively small departments translate to small opportunity for growth and upward mobility unless someone else leaves their position. Communication flow from top to bottom isn't always great.
Advice to Management
Managers could be better about communicating strategic vision. The integration and communication between departments is also minimal, though upper level management is seemingly trying to improve this.
I applied online. I interviewed at New England Aquarium.
The process was straight forward and easy for the initial phase.They called very soon after the application was submitted on-line. A phone interview was schedule with a HR agent, so the questions were more related to resume experience, general behavioral questions, etc.
