    I have been working at Mystic Seaport part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a beautiful place to work, I was always happy to arrive there. The work could be hard, but the tips made it worth it. My boss was always kind and understanding.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is the low pay, but that is to be expected with working for a museum.

    I worked at Mystic Seaport full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cause related maritime oriented museum with robust in-school partnerships and a fleet of historic and replica vessels and campus environment. Highly dedicated and team oriented community of employees dedicated to the mission.

    Cons

    Seasonal, and consistent focus on fundraising to sustain growth.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to champion the Museum's mission to broad and new audiences.

    I have been working at Mystic Seaport part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working with smart and talented people both in my department and in a variety of departments within the museum. I learned so much as well as helping others.

    Cons

    I was hired part-time for a position that was previously full-time, so I found it challenging to get the same amount of work done in half the time. It clearly required more than part-time hours to complete all the tasks involved and I found that frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Use your human resources wisely. They are extremely valuable.

    Pros

    If you love maritime history this is the place to be.

    Cons

    Benefits are really bad. And they've gotten worse since I've worked here.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great to have feedback on the work we do-I have never had a performance review and no none has asked me to review my boss or my peers.
