    I worked at SEA LIFE full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn, fantastic benefits for full time staff. Great for people just getting into the field of husbandry.

    Cons

    Sense of entitlement from part time staff, lack of adequate leadership, HR only gets involved if there's risk of a legal response. No sense of loyalty to employees.

    I have been working at SEA LIFE full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are some good work friends that help get you through the day. Get a Merlin pass that allows you to go to other Merlin attractions

    Cons

    They will literally get you to do about 3 peoples jobs. A lot of the time if someone leaves they won't employ someone to take over they well just share out the responsibilities to other employees. Everything is just focused on Money and making cuts and making money with no thought about what it has on the employees.

    I worked at SEA LIFE part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You get to be in the air conditioning surrounded by sea creatures. I had a few awesome coworkers who have become some of my best friends.

    Cons

    Upper management has NO IDEA about running a zoological facility. Your ideas/input are meaningless to them even though they regularly have special meetings with a person from every department and ask for your input/suggestions/ideas. Educators (aka Guest Experience) are treated like absolute garbage - most management and aquarist staff treat you like you’re a total moron. You won’t get moved up, no matter how deserving you are, unless you’re a major brown noser, and the ones that do get moved up are typically incompetent.
