Beautiful venue that needs better management
Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON24 April 2018
The museum is just a few years old and could use a regime change in management and human resources for things to improve. They are secretive and don't communicate well. Colleagues work hard and are great and supportive and happy to share their knowledge across departments. It is a stressful environment and many people leave and positions are never filled. Lots of people are on contract and not treated well. It's too bad because the building is beautiful and has a lot of potential. And the mandate to educate is good too.
Pros
Supportive colleagues, creative place to work
Cons
No communication, disorganized management

Fine Dining team atmosphere.
Dishwasher/Prep Cook (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON14 March 2018
There were long days but you got a lunch break, Learning to prepare middle eastern marinades was my favourite part of the job. Working with world renowned Chefs as they prepared for functions, and alongside priceless works of art in the dining room. It was stunning. Being able to peruse the gallery before work.
Pros
Lunch break, staff lunches
Cons
lots of keycarded doors, makes going to the bathroom a war with technology.

The Aga Khan Museum offers visitors a window into the artistic, intellectual, and scientific heritage of Muslim civilizations across the centuries. It is a wonderful place to work. But right now, I am volunteering there.It is not a paid job but I enjoy this collaboration as a volunteer as well.

This is a new venture and will take some time to iron out the bugs. The people are very nice and well meaning and everyone works hard.
