Job Work/Life Balance
Fun, but unfair and unorganized
GUEST EXPERIENCES FACILITATOR (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 30, 2019
This job is so much fun, the energy is amazing. The only problem is that the level of unfair disregard of issues or complaints is very evident. Senior employees who have been there many years are shown leeway on multiple things, where as young, new, college kids are written up and pushed into firing after just 1 or 2 minor issues. You will also not get many hours because they don't want to give anyone benefits.
Not the place for anyone who's interested in career advancement
(Former) Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 20, 2017
If you are looking for just a "job", this may be the place for you. But if you are serious about your career and looking to advance, enter at risk. The museum is filled with vibrant staff who are passionate about their roles. But if you are a manager or above, you are likely going to be stifled by the politics and gossip that tends to take over the museum's mission.
