Company Culture

Racist treatment from all sides, sexual harassment is rampant, toxic environments, emotionally brutal work place.

Support from management

Management is clueless. Long time employees that should never have been hired in the first place prevent people from moving up.

Teamwork

Back stabbing long time employees who fear for their jobs due to their own incompetence.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay has been stagnating for years, and despite the million+ dollar salaries that float around, don't expect that money to go to anyone below the top level.

Office / Work Environment

Horribly toxic work environments. Sexual harassment and discrimination runs rampant. If you file a complaint, expect to be targeted and written up for trivial or even fabricated acts. If you are squeaky clean, expect to be constantly harassed.

Environmental Friendliness

There are recycling bins in the back hallways, but the people responsible for picking them up admit to just tossing the contents into dumpsters.

Company Image

The Gallery spends a lot of money hiding their dirt from the public, but it's a horrible place.

Job Security

If you keep your mouth shut, it's relatively hard to get fired. However, I've seen email correspondence from various department heads where they targeted employees under them for termination due to them filing complaints for illegal activities.

This is common in pretty much every department.

The Gallery does not protect its employees, but it protects long term employees in order to avoid admitting that they are a problem.

I've seen records of long term employees in supervisory positions who have had numerous complaints filed against them, but they keep their jobs. I've seen records of employees under them who file a complaint, only to suddenly get written up for things and then forced out.

I've overheard the Gallery Lawyers laugh about their regular tactic of getting employees put on investigative leave with a short period to respond to proposal of removal, and then they go ahead with prolonging the process in order to rack up legal fees on the employee until they have to voluntary resign or go broke.

Workplace Safety

Roaches and mice all throughout the back hallways. Truck exhaust, chemical odors, and the smell of rotting garbage fills the various back hallways. Black mold? It's everywhere.

You will be sexually harassed. You will be targeted by the Gallery if you file a complaint.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The Gallery needs some serious outside investigation, as well as a complete removal of all higher ups.

What I dislike about the company

The place is evil.

Support from management

Leadership is flawed from the top down. Racism is rampant, morale is cool if you're not black. Worst experience ever in a federal position

Inclusive / Diverse

As I stated earlier the diversity factor is zero. Someone did an article calling it "The Last Plantation". Gallery has problems that will not be addressed as long as the management is not changed.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Diversity of the Board that manages the gallery, remove current administrator and his assistant for those that can create a culture of equality, learning and opportunity for all

What I like about the company

The customers that come in vary from Heads of State to everyday people and I absolutely love working with different people everyday.

What I dislike about the company

Culture of stagnant racism inside the gallery you can feel as an employee, inability or unwilling to change.
