Very interesting place to work. Lots of very capable people working together to make the place work. As opposed to other reveiws I have read, I found the level of teamwork very high. I guess it depends on the level of your position. Not everyone is involved in interdepartmental meetings, and often, the level of communication between department leaders and their teams is dependent on the ability and willingness of the individual leaders to buy in to inclusion. Like everywhere, there are some who are so self-absorbed, it is hurtful to their staffs. But overall, it's a great place to work. This also means there is not a lot of personnel movement and consequently, reduced opportunity for advancement. They have a great array of benefits, inlcuding retiremnt plan with Cultural Institutions Retiremnt System. Very interested on the welfarer of its employees.
Opportunity for advancement is limited. There only so many positions, and there is not a lot of movement, because it is a good place to work. It is a busy place to work, and if you think you are going to be able to learn what each deaprtment does and have them spend time teaching you, it just isnt going to happen. Every department works hard to keep the place running well, handle all events, and generate exhibitions and specials.

People are passionate about what they do. Free access to exhibits and free tickets for friends and family. Also gives you free access to cultural institutions around the city
There is not a lot of communication in between departments. Difficult to transfer from one to another.
