Coordinator, Development Operations (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 9, 2018
I truly enjoyed working at MoMA. The work culture is terrific and the management was supportive and helpful. It is also a beautiful place to be every day as your work environment. I would highly recommend MoMA to friends and family as a work place.

Workplace culture is toxic. It seems that the staff, security, coat check, and administrators are all working on different pages. There is huge miscommunication, finger pointing and often times contradict their policies to please customers.

This is perhaps the poorest level of management that I have ever been witness to in my 12 years in the field of Security. They promote based solely on favoritism and not based on qualification due to the Security Managers lacking skill set. And they are always looking to lay blame rather than solve a problem. The best term to describe the MoMA Security department is Gross Managerial Impotence.

MoMA is a great institution to work. Great opportunity, great benefit and very educational. MoMA has made the institution culture deliberate by creating a dedicated team tasked with coming up with events and programs to promote community. Great company culture doesn’t happen on its own.

If you love being around art, this is a fabulous place to work. Great, supportive people. Only a little disorganized and the pay less than you would hope for. Otherwise, a really great place to be. Culturally very enriching.

STORE MANAGER (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 13, 2015
A typical day is getting the doors open on time, keeping the store clean and well stocked, and motivating the staff. Because the sales staff at MoMA is union my biggest challenge was the difficulty in letting (very few) people that weren't happy, go. There were a lot of corporate managers so the pace was slower than I was used to but they were good people with good ideas. The hardest part of my job was probably just the usual situations one can find themselves in when dealing with the general public. The most enjoyable part of the job was the atmosphere of design objects, great books and the neighborhood.
The benefits. Being around a lot of pretty things
Managing a union team can be challenging at times.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 10, 2013
Working in the Museum of Modern Art has been one of the best experiences yet. When ever I got to work, I was always greeted with smiles and hugs and everyone is just very pleasant to work with. I felt comfortable and happy. Even though the museum store can get extremely busy on a daily basis, that did not take away from our patient and friendly manner. The most important thing I learned working at the museum is team work makes the seemingly impossible possible. We all worked as one unit and as a result, we accomplished our goals for the day. The management at MoMA is of top quality. Everything is run smoothly and the manager works really hard with us to make sure that everything functions as how it should be, I would say that there was nothing difficult about the job. Every now and again, I would encounter a temperamental customer but the most important thing is to have a lot of patience and give the customer whatever he wants with a positive attitude.
There was always food in the lunch area, very friendly people
