    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loved the management at the location I worked at, so much great advice and never let me feel unsure of what I was doing. Always available for questions or to help.

    Pros

    Enjoyable work providing an excellent service to the community. The hours go by fast because you are busy and doing enjoyable work with fun people. Working with kids, teachers, and general public makes every day different.

    Cons

    No opportunities for advancement; upper management is sheltered and doesn't know what is going on; lots of schedule and plan changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider honestly listening to the teachers. There seems to be a lot of "us vs them" going on.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at The Works Museum

    Pros

    Socially responsible company.
    No late nights.
    Overall company culture is decent, and the product served is excellent.
    Good benefit package.

    Cons

    While no late nights, some very early mornings.
    Advancement opportunities limited.
    Very little operational support.
    No real training program to speak of, as a new manager there is much you just need to figure out.
    Work life balance can be a challenger, with long hours and weekends and holidays required (this is pretty much the industry norm).
    Senior management can at times undermines store level managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in a real training program, set up new managers for success.
    Invest in professional development for existing managers.
    Work through your store managers, not around them.
