I worked at United Talent full-time (Less than a year)

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.)

    I worked at United Talent as an intern (Less than a year)

    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)

    Pros

    Great place to work to learn the ins-and-outs of the entertainment industry. Great place to learn skills you will use to be an agent.

    Cons

    If you plan on making your way to an agent plan on doing a ton of sucking up and don't plan on seeing your family for 4 years. Be ready to feel like you aren't worth anything.

    Advice to Management

    It's not all about you, the people under you are doing most of the work. Give credit where its due.
