Routine work habit, Does get boring easily
Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CA 90049May 5, 2017
Most days are very quiet and relaxed in terms of stress level and work intensity. Only amount of visitor crowd attendance impacts the stress level. General complaint are about management, the managers not the supervisors, and lack of moral support for security department. Learn how to communicate with different kinds of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Can easily get into trouble for obvious frowned upon acts (cell phone usage) but straight forward job. Just by showing up to work and causing any problems for management you'll be considered a good worker. Can only get into trouble if you put yourself out there and make it obvious.
Pros
Getting paid just stand all day
Cons
Managers

gorgeous campus, slow to move up the ladder
Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAFebruary 7, 2017
There is no finer looking place to work in Los Angeles and, I'd bet, the rest of the country. Stunning views from all angles. Amazing access to art and research at the highest levels. Amazingly talented people from all walks of life. Like being back on a college campus in some regards.

Job promotion is GLACIAL but the quality of life you get is huge: every other Friday off, benefits packages that provide the best work/life balance you can imagine, an incredible location and more.

Just be ready: change happens very slowly. It's painful how slow. Management has no incentive to change quickly, so they don't. So if you're someone who can play the long game, it's an incredible place. If you're someone used to corporate America, the pace might be maddening for you at first.
Pros
Stunning views from all angles, every other Friday off
Cons
slow pace of advancement

Good job
SECURITY OFFICER (Current Employee) –  Los AngelesJanuary 5, 2015
The Getty is a very good job, it has a good pay rate and benafits are not. working here you get people from all over the place so youll meet people from everywhere. The hardest part about the job is the traffic is always bad getting to work and your standing for most of day and its boring. The good parts are the pay, onsite gym, and the people you meet.
Pros
gym, food, scenery
Cons
traffic getting their and going home, on your feet all day, coworkers complain
