Pros

It's a very meaningful place to work and one that is genuinely committed to preserving the memory and history of the Holocaust for the world.

Cons

Very limited potential to move up in the institution. People stay in the same roles for YEARS and never manage to progress regardless of education, commitment, hard work.

Advice to Management

Advancement opportunities, employee training and incentives would add a lot to the institution as a whole.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Holocaust Memorial Museum full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Organization really cares about their mission and working hard to ensure that this kind of hatred never happens again. Employees treated well.

    Cons

    Not enough areas to grow, therefore everyone is trying to fight for the top positions. But if you're excited about the mission and do well, positions will open up for you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff.


  2. "Great mission, dysfunctional organization"

    I worked at Holocaust Memorial Museum full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The mission of the museum and the scope of its work is powerful and deeply meaningful.

    Cons

    Very dysfunctionally run organization with little to no room for career growth or professional development. Rather than promote from within, the leadership recruits from the outside. Most of the top performers leave.

    Advice to Management

    Please take younger staff seriously and listen to their ideas, discourage gender discrimination and provide leadership opportunities for the next generation. Create a mentorship progeam for staff and clear career path trajectories.
