    I worked at Tate full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing galleries and art, creative and talented colleagues, opportunities to get involved in different cross departmental projects, HR department are supportive, opportunities to travel (within the UK at least)

    Cons

    Woefully underpaid and overworked, junior staff not respected enough (considered 'high churn'), departments are silohed, lots of cross departmental politics - particularly marketing / audiences vs digital, no real chance for growth or promotion, my personal experience with my manager led me resigning (I have no idea if anything was done by HR to rectify this after I left the gallery)

    Advice to Management

    Organisational structure needs to be considered more, especially with the idea that digital should be separate to the rest of content creation or marketing, junior staff should be paid and treated more fairly - it might make them stop leaving at least

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tate.

    Interview

    The interview was very conversational. Nothing too difficult or unexpected. The recruiter was very nice and just asked me to walk him through my resume. He then asked a few detailed questions regarding specific experiences. The whole process was very stress-free.

    It took about a week to receive a response.
