Pros

An assistant-level job at UTA is like getting paid to go to entertainment grad school. Get a sense of the culture it takes to 'make it' in Hollywood. Unparalleled networking opportunities.

Cons

Incessant never-ending workload. Low salaries. Long hours. Many personalities are unsatisfiable divas.

    Pros

    Foot in the door in the industry, access.

    Cons

    Low pay, stressful environment, long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more career guidance to your assistants. Not all will become agents, so why waste their time? High turnover results in more time training new assistants, so give more incentives for people to stick around. 'Access' is not enough (aka listening into phonecalls.)

    Pros

    Fast-paced, friendly co-workers, get to see celebrities, great weather in California.

    Cons

    High turnover, stressful, menial work such as fetching coffee and dry cleaning, low pay, long hours and many of the higher ups are certifiably insane (but there is also a good chance you end up with a nice boss, which I did)
