REGISTRAR FOR CHILDREN'S EDUCATION (Former Employee), Bronx, NYJune 3, 2013
A typical day as manager of the registration call center included supervising staff; responding to and directing inquires; registering field trips; professional development courses for teachers and family programs.

Co-workers were true professionals and always willing to share their knowledge and expertise.

The hardest part of this job was there were – more... a lot of managerial turn-overs that often effected progress and continuity. The most enjoyable part was you were not pinned behind your desk all day. There was plenty of opportunity to explore the garden and learn something new and fascinating. – less

Great Cultural institution. High employee turn over
Director of Visitor Services (Former Employee), Bronx, NYJanuary 6, 2013
Pros: great programming and visitors.great salaries.
Cons: health benefits to expensive.
NYBG has several areas that have highly educated and qualified V.P.,managers and directors. Individually some departments run very efficiently, collectively, not all areas work together. Depending on which dept you are in, you can learn a great deal and work with a great team. Unfortunately, I discovered that the latter. However, the institution is – more... a great place to be. – less

A disappointment
Operations (Current Employee), Bronx, NYDecember 22, 2012
Decent pay and generous time off. Gorgeous garden backdrop out your window.

Health insurance is outrageously expensive for a family plan.

Culture here is not what you would imagine. Building codes and environmental regulations are ignored to save money.

Upper management is rife with corruption and promotional opportunities are almost non-existent. – more... Union has little sway in disciplinary proceedings. – less
