Pros

Views are good. Building is clean. Every second Friday off (although you make up for it by longer hours the other days). Lots of good people to work with.

Cons

Lots of incompetence especially among the senior management of the museum, conservation, foundation, and research institutes. professional qualifications are considered far inferior to art history education. senior management is bloated and self-serving.

Advice to Management

Don't be afraid of having honest outside audits and reviews of programs and organizational/ business matters. Consider a board of outsiders responsible for each institute and that has power of veto over director appointments and funding of major projects. Outside review is critical to success; without it, organizations survive with nepotism, oligarchy, and even tyranny.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The pay starts out pretty decent! For a basic "minimum wage" job, the pay is above L.A. average.
    The people were extremely friendly, never had any bad encounters with other staff.
    Gorgeous place to work, every day I had an amazing view!
    Good schedules, every other weekend you had 3 days off.
    Discounts on food!

    Cons

    Hours not good for part-time, but you eventually have the opportunity to move up to full-time.
    Tasks can be repetitive, but that's customer service, take it or leave it!
    Can't think of any major complaints!

    Pros

    Beautiful location, great benefits, some brilliant people.

    Cons

    We're not saving lives but conserving art...let's have fun doing great work. Cut through the non-profit political games.
