Free tickets, near Central Park, fun to work with fellow musicians
No raise in 2.5 years, managerial associates sent on coffee runs, must bow to artists' every whim
Advice to Management
Make sure managers aren't mistreating their subordinates. Give annual raises.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at IMG Artists (Chelsea, NY).
Their interview style was to pick apart your previous experience(s) and focus on how you aren't qualified for the position, as opposed to how/why you are. In other words, they gloss right over your relevant experience, ignoring it completely, and focus on how your relevant experience isn't relevant enough for what they do. So rather than get the opportunity to shine during the interview, you're having to defend your relevant work history, knowledge of the industry, and pretty much everything else. The entire interview is a practice in attack and defend.
I interviewed with two individuals for this opportunity. Of the two, there was one especially who I would be really, really excited about working with. I feel that there could be a lot to learn working with someone like him. He seemed like the type who could easily and effectively share information with colleagues, working as a team, with an end goal in mind of success. Great attitude he had.
- The questions weren't difficult, they were just created to expose how you're not good enough. For instance, you could choose to focus on how you've production managed for an Anton Corbijn shoot, and the interviewers would say, "yeah, but he does movies now". Or, after being asked, you could respond with your favorite photography style, and they would say, "We don't like that style here". Basically, you can't win. Answer Question
