I have been working at Memphis Zoo as a contractor (More than 5 years)

Pros

It's a tourist attraction, and offers many seasonal employment opportunities for local residents.

Cons

Nothing really, it is what it is.

Advice to Management

Pay zoo keepers what they're worth, they're the only reason anyone in the main office is employed.

    I worked at Memphis Zoo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful zoo, decent benefits, excellent location, animal staff is dedicated and easy to work with, laid back atmosphere, steady schedule

    Cons

    low pay, herd mentality, upper admin managers are overpaid for the amount of work they do and don't care about the animals

    Advice to Management

    Don't worry just about parties, take an interest in the animals. They're the reason you have a job. Increase zookeeper pay. The people who take care of the animals deserve more respect than they receive
