I worked at The Museum of Science and Industry (Chicago) full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Wonderful benefits and perks
Great environment to learn and experience first rate science and exhibits
The people there are some of the best you'll ever find in a work environment
A part of a large educational community

Cons

Holidays and summers can be a little rough, it's still a tourist attraction
There can be a lot of red tape to get things done
Sometimes senior management may have a different view than what front line and middle management wants to achieve
Job security is questionable. There have been layoffs every couple of years consistently for more than ten years

Advice to Management

Listen to your front line staff. They have great ideas and work directly with your intended audiences.

    I have been working at The Museum of Science and Industry (Chicago) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people here are very nice and have great customer service values. Many people are open to working collaboratively with each other to make the museum's programming successful.

    Cons

    Things can be slow to change sometimes, such as procedures (or rather the way things used to be). But it eventually happens and it could be because it is a large organization.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being open to listening to your employees, they are in the front line and can offer great insight of what the trends are or the changes potentially needed.
