    I worked at Sotheby's

    Pros

    Great atmosphere for anyone who is into art and is intrigued by the auction system of how art and collectibles are bought and sold. Sotheby's is also a brand name that gets you recognized in the future on your resume.

    Cons

    The beauty of their art galleries and catalogues aside, it is still a business... and any business that has millions of dollars on the line with each auction puts a decent amount of pressure on the people that have to do the gruntwork to make it happen. Also, many department heads act like they're royalty because of their connections and are difficult to deal with, but again that's part of the art world and should be expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find more ways to increase the amount that low to mid level employees can enjoy the overall experience of what Sotheby's offers to the public.

    Sometimes became overly bureaucratic and less about the art.

    Don't be so distant. It's about the art.
