California Academy of Sciences Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The California Academy of Sciences is a research institute and natural history museum in San Francisco, California, that is among the largest museums of natural history in the world, housing over 46 million specimens. The Academy began in 1853 as a learned society and still carries out a large amount of original research. Completely rebuilt in 2008, the Academy's primary building in Golden Gate Park covers 400,000 square feet (37,000 m2). In early 2020, before the COVID-19 pandemic, the California Academy of Sciences had around 500 employees and an annual revenue of about $33 million.
On April 2019 an outraged costumer wrote for trip advisor a brief review about how The California Academy of Sciences have the animals in really closed places: Live animals enclosed in small spaces. Amazing that this is the way they still want to teach kids about nature.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) says"Very disorganized company. They keep the incompentant people and they get rid of the competant. Management is the worst. Constantly Micromanaging. Management seriously dosen't know what they are doing. Miserable place for its employees, alot of backlash. Human Resources does nothing to protect its employees. The work is easy, you needn't be a rocket scientist to do the job. I would not recommend to anyone to work there. Its a joke. Don't think that just because that its the Academy of Science that it would be a great place to work at because its not. Cons: everything."
Security Guard (Former Employee) says"The work culture is completely unprofessional first of all a lot of the Supervisors went to high school together so it is like a high school environment there favoritism and nepotism there's no room for advancement if your not part of the workplace clique which is ran by the supervisors."
Security Guard (Former Employee) says"This company hired me for part time work. They started me at 20-24 hours per week & then cut my hours down to 5 hours per week after working there for 8 months. I felt that there was no room for advancement working within this company. Cons: No Room for Advancement & No Employee Discounts"

Associate Director, Donor Relationship Marketing (Current Employee) says"The most enjoyable part of the job is to be working in Golden Gate Park"
Main Floor Assistant (Former Employee) says"This was my favorite job by far because of the potential to learn. What was a drawback was the upper management intent. I was chosen to lead a major departmental location move in my group. My lead director informed me that I did a good job. The next week I was laid off. One got the impression that the work culture is highly competitive. The focus is not on one's loyalties and abilities, but rather what is best for the dollar and the upper management's success. Disappointing to say the least. Cons: little loyalty to employees from upper management"
Guest Services Representative (Former Employee) says"The academy of sciences was a great place to work with a great group of people. 1st hand knowledge of new exhibits. VIP access to exhibits as well. Working here created great opportunity to interact with guests and create a memorable experience. Cons: little compensation, no health benefits, no upward mobility"
