    I worked at Creative Artists Agency (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back interview, wasn't sure what to expect. was asked if i knew about the company. sounded like a good place to work for.

    Cons

    A lot of over time, not great pay, not the worst either. Lots of hours to work but again, i'd say it's worth it if its something you want to do.

    Advice to Management

    Better starter pay i guess. The staff are happy so I don't think its run all that bad. Great environment to work at. I enjoyed it.

    Great way to learn industry and how ideas come to life. Incredibly talented and innovative people. Learning opportunities are good.

    I worked at Creative Artists Agency full-time

    Pros

    You get to work with the greatest bands in the world, get to go to every concert and festival you have ever dreamed of.

    Cons

    - The daily work itself is monotonous and very admin heavy.
    - The career trajectory is not very clear so assistants stay longer than they should hoping to become an agent.
    - Once assistants realise they are not going to make it to the next stage after years of work they tend to leave to other organisations creating a huge talent drain within the company.

    I worked at Creative Artists Agency full-time

    Pros

    Fast-paced environment where you work with some of the most dynamic young people in the entertainment industry. The perks are elite for each department you work in. The networking opportunities are invaluable and will lead you to a better position whether you advance to an agent or decide to work elsewhere.

    Culture is one-of-kind for a corporate space. You will find something to do outside of your desk every day whether it is diversity committees or company events for your department.

    Cons

    - The salary is way too low for the hours. It is looked down upon if you report OT
    - Not much mentorship if you don't a personal connection to an agent.

    Advice to Management

    - Check in with assistants for feedback on the supervisor and company more often
    - Pay better than the industry standard
