    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.

    Pros

    The benefits and perks are great. Pay is only good if you're a manager and up. Free monthly lunches. Half days.

    Cons

    Regardless of position or hierarchy you will be treated like crap by literally everyone and anyone. Agents literally scowl and cringe at you as they pass you in the halls. And guess what? No one cares. You can complain to HR and they will act very "compassionate" but it's all to save face. The whole office structure is run by 21 years olds right out of college. No joke! Their first adult job! These $15 an hour children (who were only hired due to their parents connections and not merit) literally make huge decisions and operate a 500 million a year company... in EVERY department. It's absurd. HR is a joke. They don't protect anyone except for CAA and their brand. You're pretty much just cattle. Do not go there expecting to make friends either. Between the backstabbing, two-face, and visible horrid attitudes, your best bet is stay clear. Even the housekeepers are the same way! Awful in every sense of the word.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so "corporate" and actually take notice of your workers. And actually hire proper adults with a proper salary for these assistant roles instead of children. You are literally running a high school clique for pay.
