This Graduate program that pays for Earth science teachers
There is a lot of work, and New York is expensive and they do not provide housing
- 3.0Nov 27, 2023Senior DirectorCurrent Employee, more than 8 yearsNew York, NY
great staff, every day is different, an amazing institution
There is no formal training or succession planning. Upper management had little experience managing people and didn't care to learn. Over thirty years the president surrounded herself with secretive game players as department leaders some of whom had little regard for staff engagement which the president felt was acceptable.

Free tickets for the museum and any exhibit. Nice and relaxing work day usually. Many other perks to the job and scheduling is very accommodating.
A lot of technical issues occur, and customers get very heated due to this.
- 3.0Oct 9, 2023Exhibition CoordinatorCurrent Employee, more than 1 yearNew York, NY
Good benefits, diverse work staff, women in positions of power, fun and fulfilling place to work
Tons of work, not enough pay, benefits recently took a slight down-tick, administration in Exhibition is condescending and rude. Very little room for professional growth.

The pay isn’t enough for living in NYC.
