USHMM is an incredible place to work. There is a reason there is little turn over. When you start it's hard to leave because the mission is so important and you do feel like the work you're doing regardless of the department you're contributing to the cause.

No opportunities for advancement, No cooperative, fair, and positive open door policy, no management integrity.Over $5000 was not paid to me by the federal government and the museum for a Time recording error, because I had worked Saturday nights and should had received shift differential. I wasn't paid for all of my years that I worked Saturday nights. I was only paid for some of the years. The remaining years that the approximate $5000 plus wasn't paid, the museum used the federal government's and OPM's statue of limitations law for not being bond to pay me that amount. No opportunities for advancement. It is a dead-end GS8 position. It is a cold working environment in the security control center during the evening and overnight hours.
There are many incredible opportunities for learning, education, and professional development at USHMM, but to really take advantage of them one needs to be prepared to invest more than one year of volunteering.

Bad practices are rampant and management is out of touch: - Limited focus on digital to reach younger audiences - Little grasp of what makes Marketing work - Management through backstabbing, false niceties, and shame - Decisions are made by committee and lack context/data - Emphasis on relevance without actually BEING relevant The Museum takes a hard stance on how to discuss Holocaust history and (their words) "unequivocally rejects efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether historical or contemporary." Analogies (what's happening today feels a little like what happened before) are key to learning. By restricting learning to "only what happened during the Holocaust" instead of "how what happened during the Holocaust can inform what we see today in the world and our response to it" the Museum does a disservice to its own mission.

I loved interning at the USHMM. It was such an incredible experience that I will never forget. I learned so much about the day-to-day duties of keeping a museum running, along with gaining valuable public speaking skills, and interacting with thousands of people every day. All of my co-workers were very friendly, and the overall work environment was very upbeat.
