I worked at Sotheby's

Pros

In terms of an internship, it's great. You learn a ton. If you are looking for an internship in the fine arts world, it doesn't get better than this!

Cons

I was unpaid, but most internships are. I have heard people complain about working there- low compensation and hard to move up, but I did not work there as a full time employee so I don't know that for a fact.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great internship program!

    I worked at Sotheby's

    Pros

    Sotheby's is unlike any place you can work and the opportunities to learn and grow are outstanding. It is a must for anyone who wants to move on in the art world.

    Cons

    The politics and room for growth within Sotheby's can be challenging. There are few opportunities to advance within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a more established career path and create more opportunities for employees.

    I worked at Sotheby's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work was simple, but taught me about customer service, databases, and real estate. Good time off for lunch. Little supervision so can independently develop my skills.

    Cons

    Not enough hours because I was only working ten a week. There was not a lot of work to do and the main receptionist was very anal about cleanliness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
