    I worked at Exploratorium full-time

    Pros

    Exploratorium is a fantastic place to work. Some of the highlights include:
    - amazing benefit program: vacation, medical, 403b, etc.,
    - co-workers are a family
    - the organization's mission to serve the community manifests itself in so many positive ways
    - work is both challenging and rewarding.

    Cons

    Some of the standard non-profit drawbacks apply to the Exploratorium:
    - advancement opportunities are presented only when senior staff vacate positions (which is infrequent)
    - nepitism is not uncommon
    - salaries are on the lower end of the non-profit scale even compared to other local museums
    - internal politics are ruthless at times
    - little flexibility to work remote

    Advice to Management

    A few fairly easy things would drastically improve the workplace environment:
    - create merit based salary review process
    - invest more money/effort into the onsite experience vs. external programs
    - pay more attention to margin
