Just Standing all day
SECURITY OFFICER (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAFebruary 13, 2019
If you can stand all day, do it. Co-workers are great, supervisors are another story. Chill environment but everyday is literally the same. If you can handle the boredom then you're good. Easy job, great benefits. If you want to move up, the only thing above security officer is supervisor other than that you need a degree for other jobs that are at the Getty.
Pros
beautiful environment
Cons
Boring. Feels unproductive.

Commute is far
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CADecember 11, 2018
No balance of work or personal life. The Getty is far from any direction in the Los Angeles County. They do offer vanpool services but Los Angeles traffic is bad regardless of carpooling/vanpooling. The Getty is strict on their polices and regulations. Must follow at all times or else.
Pros
benefits and beautiful scenic view
Cons
no flexible hours, traffic, management

ASSET MANAGER/PROJECT SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CASeptember 25, 2018
Going to work at this beautiful museum is a definite plus.
The staff range from all ages and cultures around the world that assist in the maintenance and education of all the Getty collective priceless arts. Management is very structured and many were a pleasure to work with. I had the pleasure of working with all departments as I would meet with them regarding the computer needs. Getty encouraged all-Getty functions and events which was another plus.

Low to no stress work enviornment
Project Coordinator, Finance & Accounting (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJuly 9, 2018
A typical work day consist of processing daily pay cycles (printing and verifying vendor checks, remote and vault deposits of cash, checks and foreign currency to bank, process invoices (ensuring invoice information is correct, confirm purchase order numbers and routing to vendor services. I have learned new aspects of cash handling and AP/Payroll processing, since coming to work at J Paul Getty Trust. Leadership is fair and willing to assist during busy/crucial times and always maintains an easy non-confrontational open door policy.

Most enjoyable part of the job is every other Friday off.
Pros
The beautiful campus

Management is capable and responsive.
The pay is at or above average.
Pros
Great Atmosphere

I work the night shift, not bad, but still rather have the day shift.

Management here is the worst
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  1200 Getty Center Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90049December 26, 2017
Typical day at work is procedural opening of the museum roll call and getting our radios. The rest of the day you just stand there and tell people to keep a safe distance when they get too close. Everyone gossips because they're bored all day so you hear all the rumors in the break room. Management gets bored and has nothing to do so they begin to sneak up on us while we're on duty to try to catch us on our phones. Too many people in power. They tend to step on each others toes at the end they use people to make examples out of them. Honesty doesn't mean anything when it comes to management here. Would not recommend it to anyone.
Pros
Scenery
Cons
Traffic, Boring, Management

Easy but boring
Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CADecember 13, 2017
Your typical day at work would be standing at most for 2 hours then break for 10 minutes and then standing again and then break for lunch then standing again then last break and then standing till end of shift while watching and making sure people don't get too close to the art pieces. I learned it's really tough standing for long periods of time. Management wasn't great. Felt they were more trying to catch you in trouble than watching out for you. Not much to say about the workplace culture. Nothing is hard about this job. Easiest job ever. The most enjoyable part of the job was the breaks.
Pros
Discount of lunch and good benefits.
Cons
Short breaks and too much standing

HR Coordinator /Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMay 31, 2017
An organization is formed to achieve certain goals and objectives by bringing individuals together on a common platform and motivating them to deliver their level best. It is essential for the employees to enjoy at the workplace for them to develop a sense of loyalty towards it.

Work culture plays an important role in extracting the best out of employees and making them stick to the organization for a longer duration. The organization must offer a positive ambience to the employees for them to concentrate on their work rather than interfering in each other’s work.

What is work culture ?

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
