    Cons

    There is little room for growth due to the high turnover rate

    "Good career starting point but serious flaws that discolor what could be a much more positive work experience"

    I worked at Georgia Aquarium

    Pros

    Ample PTO, fantastic colleagues, positive/fun nonprofit company mission, professional experience working with multiple teams, incredible animals.

    Cons

    Low pay compared to industry standard, almost no room for growth. Good starting point for career but not a place to land if you have experience in your field. HR is an absolute mess & operates entirely unchecked, cannot trust any information stemming from the entire department. They are very nice but incompetent people, & nothing seems to warrant an audit of the department despite every single employee I know having received misinformation on multiple occasions which affects their healthcare, pay, benefits. Zero accountability from HR regarding any of their mistakes, even when brought to their attention.

    I have been working at Georgia Aquarium full-time

    Pros

    I love my team, I fully support the message, work load is fair, benefits, and vacation time.

    Cons

    There's very little room for growth if you're looking to stay long term. If you'd like to advance your career, do not expect those steps to happen here.

    "Great Benefits But No Growth and Poor Management"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Georgia Aquarium full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Flexible Hours. Amazing Animals and friendly co-workers (excluding some VPs). The Animal care team does an AMAZING job with the animals. Overall a good place to start your career.

    Cons

    No room for growth. People in higher positions are inconsiderate and rude to employees they feel are "beneath" them. Communication between departments is TERRIBLE. Literally decisions are made without consideration to how it will affect everyone. It's department against department instead of everyone working together toward a common goal. Employees that aren't in higher positions are grossly under compensated. Every department doesn't have the resources it needs to be successful such as staff or equipment. It's a good stepping stone but definitely not a place you want to stay longer than a year. I'm currently looking.
