    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Fernbank Museum part-time

    Pros

    Great place to work, very supportive staff and team. You can tell that management supports staff and wants to help them grow. Of course, there are also lovely benefits to working in a museum: seeing the exhibits, interacting with guests, and the great volunteers!

    Cons

    Pay is low, though still in the general range of similar organizations in Atlanta

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Personable, friendly, encouraging place to work. Always pushes you to learn more and do your best. Lack of knowledge is seen as a chance to learn, never a reason to shame. Everyone is excited to work there.

    Cons

    If you don't like kids, it's not for you! A lot of the exhibits are out of date or in disrepair. Needs more funding.

    Pros

    Great communication with volunteers, opportunities for specified growth and expansion, free admission to exhibits

    Cons

    Very competitive for time slots. Many regular volunteers means the spaces fill up very quickly
