    I worked at Whitney Museum full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing curators and exhibition programming; small staff, so it's a very hands-on workplace; see a project from beginning to end; passionate people who believe in the work they do

    Cons

    Not compensated well, as it is a non-profits arts institution and it's in one of the most expensive cities in the world; expected to do a lot, long hours, lots of events, for not much pay

    Advice to Management

    Compensate accordingly, so people don't feel so overworked and overwhelmed
