Gagosian Gallery Reviews
Pros – it is really really okay
Cons – it is quite boring actually
Advice to Senior Management – asdf
Pros – The pros are that you have access to great art and art resources (Gagosian library). Also you will meet a lot of interesting and/or famous people (as well as wanna-be celebrities) who come into the gallery.
The other pro (though I think this is a con) is that you will spend 90% of your time staring at your computer pretending to do something important. So basically, the work is really easy. It's the people who are difficult.
Cons – -I worked full time for $8 an hour- yet still had to maintain the illusion of glamor and wealth.
-There's no training period. They will throw you to the lions on day one and expect you to perform. Also, don't expect much feedback on whether you're doing a good job or not. Most co-workers expect you to mind read.
-Basically, it really is like the movie "The Devil Wears Prada". I worked over 40 hours a week and got yelled at by everyone.
-It is a very competitive, hostile work environment. You need a thick skin to work here because people will literally hang up on you as you're trying to ask them a question.
Advice to Senior Management – - Be more realistic with potential employees at the interview. I was told the company was "like a family" and that employees "had no job titles" and "went out to happy hour together". Total rubbish.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – I suppose one pro of working at Gagosian Gallery would be one's proximity to some of the world's most incredible contemporary art.
Cons – Basically the office culture is one of complete demoralization and everyone there seems to be in competition to see who can be the most miserable.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
