    Pros

    Many really wonderful, committed people work here. It can feel like a family and can be a fun, warm environment. More organized than many non-profits and the mission of the organization is deeply entrenched. Do a lot of promoting from within, lots of room to grow.

    Cons

    At times it feels like the mission is pursued at the cost of the staff. A lot of turnover and staff can be laid off with no warning. Communication between leadership and departments is lacking. Very gossipy. Can sometimes feel a little sexist -- many male leaders seem to have the loudest and most valued opinions.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage better communication and collaboration between departments and department leaders. Understand that staff have lives outside of work, and the work of this organization is not everyone's personal mission but that does not make them a bad employee.

    I worked at Jazz at Lincoln Center part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    you can see celebs once a while, if you work inside the theaters you can enjoy a little of the shows, very friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    low pay, uncertain schedule, no minimum hours guaranteed. to may rules for a so easy job, unprepared new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Don't think this is THE job everyone is dreaming about. It's NOT. be more flexible, just the way you ask employees to be.

    Pros

    You can grow to become family
    You can make friendships that will last forever

    Cons

    Everyone is over worked and underpaid.
    You will go days without seeing your family but at Jazz most of top management doesnt have family to go home to so they dont often care. If you are not part of the inner circle in time they will find a way to end your employment.

    Advice to Management

    Dont ever forget your promise of having a soul cause you currently have none great to see Greg making 400k but what about those who actually make the facility work?

    I have been working at Jazz at Lincoln Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Greta environment if you are an artist. Great people. Great mission. Folks are helpful and want to do the work required of them.

    Cons

    Seems like their is a lot that goes on behind the scene. Job security is not always felt. Departments don't always work together.

    Advice to Management

    Be more loyal. Pay attention to where the money is being spent and how. Rethink the contract process.
