I worked at Smithsonian part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

It is a big organization, and has an outstanding reputation all over the world. There's a lot of opportunity with in the organization.

Management have been good overall. My only advise is continue the standard of SI, and also conduct more seminars about grooming employees to become successful in the future.
