"Like joining the priesthood"

Pros

The prestige is, of course, enormous. Go to a cocktail party and say you work at MoMA and all of a sudden the room lights up. In the curatorial department, you'll meet everyone - or at least you'll be near everyone; you might not get to talk to anyone at all if you don't throw some elbows.

Cons

Neurotic in the extreme. Colleague approach their work with the intensity of bankers but with none of the salaries. Too big and too small at the same time - communication is poor, and there's no real opportunity for advancement. Punishingly low salaries, of course, but no worse than anywhere else in the New York art world.

Advice to Management

Listen to your younger staff. We're smarter than you give us credit for, and if you gave us a bit more leeway you'd find we can thrive.

    I worked at Moma as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    - One of the few salaried museum internship positions (both 12-month and seasonal)
    - Strong support from fellow interns and from supervisors/team members
    - Tour different institutions in NYC to learn more about the behind-the-scenes in museums and to network with museum professionals around the city
    - Treated as a colleague with substantial responsibilities (12-month interns)
    - Stipend to go on a research trip in the spring
    - Can branch out and learn more about other teams that interest you

    Cons

    - Depending on the department, sometimes more demanding than what your pay-grade entails
