      The museum really cares about providing a positive working environment. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful. The location obviously can't be beat.


      As a part time employee, I don't always get as many hours of work as I'd ideally like. It'd be helpful to know my schedule further in advance.

        It was an esteemed place to go to work, and I was excited to work at a place where I spent my childhood. Every day I got to be an Indiana Jones rummaging through a dusty attic to discover new things. Central Park was very accessible across the street from the museum which was a great place to go during nice weather. I found the AMNH was a nice change of pace from working at the speed of business at my previous job. The project workloads were reasonable, the deadlines were liberal, and the opportunities to be precious about my projects was great.


        I found the people at the institution to be outdated and out of touch. For instance, things are designed by committee, people were petty, cliquey, people quick to blame someone else behind their back, and little to no follow-through on tasks. Everyone had a quick opinion and slow to make a decision. It wasn't the kind-heartedness I was expecting from working at a non-profit. It was difficult to see my completed tasks making any impact. The old project file folders of paperwork had very little information. It made it difficult for me to execute tasks/answer questions for my director, supervisor, and the Business Development department. I was uncomfortable making barely informed guesses but did the best I could. Operationally, it was a bureaucratic, controlled chaotic environment--miserable too. I didn't like how there was no opportunities for career advancement within the museum as well.
