Difficult, but not impossible, to be stressed!
STT (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CaliforniaAugust 30, 2011
Pros: fabulous location, amazing views of the valley, great art & architecture, deer! squirrels!, top notch restaurant, superior benefits
Cons: mediocre cafe food, parking, some bad management
Getty Center in Brentwood: Beautiful location above the city - you feel like you've gotten away from "it all". The architecture and art lend a peaceful air to the job. If you start to stress, take ten minutes and visit your favorite gallery. The work/life balance was nice. Overtime was rare and except for emergencies, we knew about it well in advance.

Job – more... security is relatively good but advancement isn't all that great as it's a very "flat" organization. However the pay is good and increases, while average in bad times, are better in good times.

The benefits were great while I was there: Medical, Dental, Vision, 401A and a retirement plan were definitely a step above other companies where I've worked.

Management is a bit iffy. They have some real characters that range from fabulous (many) to spineless (some) to barely functioning paranoid dictators (two or three). Most of them are harmless and it's not that difficult to adjust your interactions with them accordingly. I was good at treating them how they wanted to be treated so I was well thought of and respected.

The parking gets to be annoying after awhile. You park at the bottom of the hill and take a bus or tram to the top. This adds about 10-15 minutes to your commute and makes it difficult to get "off the hill" for lunch. – less

It was a joy to work in such an inspiring environment dedicated to the arts. Great organizational ethics and a wonderful selection of people to share work with.
