Overworked and underpaid employees w/ a CEO who has no strategic plan for the company to resolve many of it's issues.

I highly recommend staying away from this company. As a non-profit organization it heavily relies on the idea of paying it's employees a low salary with a negative job work/life balance for the sake of "loving what you do". The constant turnover of employees, including at the executive level, results in the organization having zero direction and the CEO being too timid to make any decisions. The CEO is an idea person but nothing more. No action is taken and no grand plan for the organization exists. The building and exhibits are in desperate need of repair and replacement but with no strategic plan in place to accomplish the needs, the negative experiences from guests gets pushed directly onto the already overworked and underpaid staff.


Employees Really Love what they Do, Location in Midtown, Large Amount of PTO


Employees love what they do so much their lives revolve around the company, zero direction from the leadership team, high rate of turnover at every position and level (including executive level), constant in-fighting between departments, very low compensation for work being performed, only employees with offices make adequate money

Great facility with poor leadership

They have inexperienced leadership running things the way they think it should be without the input of the more experienced senior staff. The staff are very caring for the visitors and pasinate about their duties.
