    I have been working at Dallas Museum of Art full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work-life balance, perks/discounts at the Museum and Arts District, free CPE training with local auditors that focus on NFPs, great benefits, vacation/sick time and 3 personal days

    Cons

    High turnover at the gallery attendant level

    Advice to Management

    We are implementing a new job review process that opens the conversation between managers and their employees. I believe this will help to improve retention rates and overall morale. More social/volunteering events for the employees may boost morale and build better connections across departments.

    Pros

    I have found that the employees are very helpful and willing to assist whenever needed. The company is really committed to not only providing an excellent place to work for a company that has done so much to enrich the lives of our community.

    Cons

    It is a great place to work and it has a great life/work balance.

    I have been working at Dallas Museum of Art full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The team members at the DMA are positive and easy to work with. The work /life balance is unlike any other I have experienced. Since the DMA is a non-profit, it is unlike the corporate institutions that require long hours and late night email responses.

    The medical benefits are great! $15 per pay period for a PPO plan is amazing, not to mention the time off allowances. There is also 401k matching, free parking, and 50% off DART passes if you utilize public transit.

    I love it here!

    Cons

    I can't think of any right now.

    Advice to Management

    More information flow, more team meetings, more leadership visibility.

    I worked at Dallas Museum of Art full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The art, exposure to artists and creatives, invitations to events and talks, free entry to other museums and perks like free tickets to the opera, theatre.

    Cons

    Low pay, changing expectations and restructuring, low morale and a rift between education and curatorial teams. Little to no room for advancement.

    While I worked at the Museum, I ended up taking on the job responsibilities of two other staff members who were never replaced - without additional compensation. It was extremely frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    To increase morale, I would suggest reviewing employees responsibilities and titles. Create opportunities for staff members to work with people on opposite teams to foster teamwork and creativity.

    Pros

    There are some people who work here who truly love their work and respect the general museum audience.

    Cons

    Behind the scenes, there's a significant lack of maturity in senior management and the people they are grooming. This shows in the unhappiness of so many of the staff and the lack or respect given to the general museum audience.

    Advice to Management

    Say what you mean and do what you say. Transparency and honesty goes a long way.

    Pros

    The outreach and educational initiatives are outstanding. It is a pleasure being able to contribute to an organization invested locally, nationally and internationally.

    Cons

    As a not-for-profit and free general admission organization, the funding is a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep the mission at the forefront of everything we do.
