    Positive Outlook

    I worked at The Works Museum as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly and welcoming staff eager to answer any questions you may have. Fun day camps, kids are excited to be there. Light-hearted atmosphere.

    Cons

    I do not have many cons. It was a fun place to work as an intern for a summer. Not a very big budget to spend on graphic design/marketing since it is a nonprofit.

    Advice to Management

    I was not there long enough to have advice to the management. It seemed a little chaotic at times - maybe a bit more organization would help!


  2. "Mission- and kid-oriented hands-on museum"

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at The Works Museum (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Works is very mission oriented, with great people who want to help kids explore engineering. The curriculum is very hands-on, with great projects to work with.

    Cons

    The flexibility allowed teachers sometimes meant not very much guidance was available to learn about new curriculum. Those in charge of managing/stocking materials have let the store rooms get disorganized to the point of chaos. Pay is low, with little chance for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the training of teachers to include more robust curriculum guides, as well as instituting procedures for organizing and using materials.
