Making a Difference

Our Culture

Monterey_bay_box4-276x77

Working at the Monterey Bay Aquarium is more than just going to the office every day. In addition to our purpose-driven work in one of the most beautiful spots in the world, we offer a competitive compensation and benefits package (medical, dental and life insurance; floating holidays, vacation and sick time) including a couple of things we feel distinguish us: a unique and generous retirement plan and a wellness program staff can't wait to join. We do our best to walk the talk so we offer our team members discounts at our Cafe, which serves local, sustainable and organic foods, plus subsidized gym memberships and alternative transportation discounts, too. Our goal of working toward a healthy ocean can only be achieved with a healthy organization, which is something we strive for here at the Aquarium.
