Fun Internship in Education Department
Audience Evaluation Intern (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJuly 13, 2017
This internship is so fun and enjoyable. I aid the education department in many ways. I started my own audience evaluation study and am given the freedom to conduct it in whatever manner I would like.

Animal Keeper I (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJanuary 23, 2017
I miss this job with a passion that rivals what I went into this job having. The animals are fantastic, but the micromanaging makes for a bleak and tedious atmosphere. Coming in early and staying late are normal experiences and should be expected. The frustrating part is the micromanaging and near constant hassle of making sure the entire chain of command is on the same page before anything can progress. And the managers never seemed to agree often.
On the plus side, the zookeepers are some of the most dedicated group of workers I have ever had the pleasure to work with, some of which have been there 15+ yrs. This zoo is improving slowly but surely, and new exhibits are being added.
Pros
Hardworking individuals. New, exciting advancements. Good healthcare plans.
Cons
Frustrating management, low pay for the amount of work.
