    I worked at Phillips de Pury & Company

    Pros

    The youthful environment was exactly what I wanted. Specialities in only contemporary really help focus this company on what's important. Work is work, but at least I enjoyed all the small tasks that are thrown in the mix.

    Cons

    This place is a little bit disorganized, but it depends on the department. Also, you'd think a new sales floor would have phones and internet that worked during an auction.

If creating a masterpiece is hard enough, ask Phillips, de Pury & Company how difficult it can be to sell one. Finding it hard to compete with auction giants Sotheby's and Christie's, the auction house has scaled back its operations.
