    Supervisors treat visitor services reps. with very little respect.

    I have been working at American Museum of Natural History full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good life-work balance. good benefit
    great location, best spot in new york city (central park is next to your office)
    friendly stuff.
    though there are 2000+ employee, you only need to deal with very few of them. if your direct boss and co-workers are nice, you will be happy at work.

    Cons

    the pay is not good, partly because it's a non-profit organization
    big organization, only get to know very few people.
    promotion is almost impossible, there are many senior people there, young people is not taken seriously
    don't be a part-time stuff there, museum fire those poor fellows anytime to 'cut the expense'.
    according to someone worked there for more then 20 years, not much has changed since then
