    I worked at National Baseball Hall of Fame full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I loved working with the staff and helping in any way that I could. I worked with the personnel side of the Human Resources department and it was great. I retired in August 2015.

    Cons

    Like all companies they are taking emoyer paid benefits away from employees.

    Advice to Management

    Have trust in your employees. Even though the company may need to cut back removing employees benefits is not necessarily the way to go.Then you have a better chance of having a happy staff.

    I worked at National Baseball Hall of Fame full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was cool to see all of the history and get a chance to see some of Baseball's greats. As a baseball fan, it was very interesting.

    Cons

    Visitor Services can be boring and tedious. Like any visitor service job - you have to deal with annoying questions. Walking the floors gets pretty boring after you have done it 100x.

    Advice to Management

    Management was relaxed

    I worked at National Baseball Hall of Fame full-time

    Pros

    They were willing to give me as many hours as I wanted. The job is simple–running a cash register, filling stock, keeping the store neat. Gets busy in July and August when more tourists are visiting, which is stressful but makes it less boring.

    Cons

    Pretty boring. Lots of drama between employees.

    Pros

    Very family oriented and somewhat flexible. For baseball fans, this is where history resides.

    Cons

    Not-for-profit. Staff success is sometimes based on museum attendance, which is difficult to control in a down economy.
