I have been working at J. Paul Getty Trust full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Met some great co-workers who have remained friends. Pretty views, the art.

Cons

Nowhere to go. Doesn't matter how many degrees you have or languages you speak- your initiative, hard work and suggestions at improvement are not rewarded and mine was even discouraged in a "you're rocking the boat" kind of way. Pay is low. Stagnant atmosphere. HR is a nightmare. Hierarchy is absurd with multiple levels of supervisors stumbling over each other.. Pay is laughable - you can make more at In n Out Burger. Everyone was working overtime, all the time to make up for low pay. At first they offered benefits - that were taken away.

Advice to Management

Value and listen to your staff and pay them what they're worth.

    I have been working at J. Paul Getty Trust full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and free access to two of the best museums in the Los Angeles Area. Also the alternative work schedule is great. Parking is free.

    Cons

    No chance to move up or get promoted. Getting to work is tough unless you live in brentwood, because of the the location. Its off the busiest freeway in the world 405.
