Pros

Nice building and atmosphere. Secure location. The hours are reasonable most of the time. Not much pressure volunteer your own time for work events, as if often the case at museums.

Cons

Low pay, even for a non-profit.
Lack of sufficient equipment to do the work efficiently. Management blames this on finances, but that was not always the case in my department.

Advice to Management

Hire qualified managers.
Offer employees some perks to make up for the low salaries.

    I worked at Senator John Heinz History Center as an intern

    Pros

    Fascinating archives
    Convenient location
    Cafeteria on site

    Cons

    As soon as my internship was up I was treated like a stranger. The archives staff is a clique; if they don't want you, they make it very obvious

    Advice to Management

    Be supportive. Your policy of not allowing volunteers to process collections makes no sense when your volunteer has an MLIS and just worked for you for 9 months.
