    Pros

    Smaller agency allows for more hands on learning within the entertainment industry. Good work/social life balance. Agents accessible and open to ideas.

    Cons

    Lots of coverage, some days can be very repetitive.

    I have been working at Gersh Agency as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Tightly knit community, friendly executives, and the company really cares about educating its employees. The office is in a nice location in Beverly Hills and offers great opportunities for networking.

    Cons

    Generally the office is high-stress, especially during pilot season (in January), and sometimes the agents can be harsh and brusque. Assistant level pay is pretty minimal, and don't even think about applying for a desk until you've put your time in at the mail room.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More networking, out of office events for assistant-level employees to get to know one another better.

    Pros

    Small atmoshphere allows for lots of hands on experience

    Cons

    One agent there, is one of the most pompous, self-righteous people in New York. One would think this would be the norm for a talent agent, however I have found the opposite in my experience. Agents are usually nice people. It's as if he read some handbook on 'How to act like an Agent'. Its comical how miserable he is.

    I have been working at Gersh Agency

    Pros

    The Gersh Agency provides a competitive environment for anyone who desires a competitive environment for any individual who desires to be a talent agent.

    Cons

    The work atmosphere lacks the synergies that you see in other talent agencies that lead the industry. As a boutique firm, you would expect that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Synergies should be promoted in a competitive environment such as the one provided at the Gersh Agency. It is not promoted here.
