    Pros

    For the most part, the agents are amazing and the best to learn from. The assistants all get along and are friendly. The environment is laid back and comfortable (most of the time).

    Cons

    TERRIBLE pay with TERRIBLE hours. No real HR in the New York offices.

    Advice to Management

    Assistants should be paid more so they are encouraged to stay in order to generate a team of future agents. Training a new assistant every year has got to be tiring.
