Approves of CEO

Pros

Being a member of the Aquarium's music performance cast yielded great pay, for a student, and allowed for a good time at work.

Cons

The aquarium was small, and since I had lots of down time, it was easy to get bored. Employee cafeteria wasn't great.

Advice to Management

If the employee food cafeteria was better employees would appreciate the Aquarium of the Pacific much more. Other than than, it was great.

    Pros

    Good place to get a job, not a place for a career. You get a paycheck, which I guess it's a positive.

    Cons

    There are key people in a few departments, that if you get in their good graces you are set, but if you aren't willing to bow to them they'll force you out. This place is more cliquish than highschool.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally. Too many people are forced out because they are not part of the "in-crowd." Some of the older employees are the worst regarding this!

    I worked at Aquarium of the Pacific full-time

    Pros

    Dynamic peers. Top management has integrity. Nice location.

    Cons

    High workload with limited financial resources. This is primarly due to how AoP was financially structured when it was created (attendance was over predicted).

    Advice to Management

    A sesne of urgency taken to far reduces productivity.
    Kudos for your integrity.
