    I worked at United Talent full-time

    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.

    I worked at United Talent full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Foot in the door in the industry, access.

    Cons

    Low pay, stressful environment, long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.)
