    I have been working at National Tropical Botanical Garden full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Amazing mission and coworkers. Beautiful work setting.

    Cons

    Low pay for all but the very top. Gardeners start at $12/hr poverty wage. No pay increases in last 10 years. No retirement benefits. Limited opportunity for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Step out of the office into the garden.
