    Young, hip auction house. (not for everyone)

    I worked at Phillips de Pury & Company

    Pros

    The youthful environment was exactly what I wanted. Specialities in only contemporary really help focus this company on what's important. Work is work, but at least I enjoyed all the small tasks that are thrown in the mix.

    Cons

    This place is a little bit disorganized, but it depends on the department. Also, you'd think a new sales floor would have phones and internet that worked during an auction.

    I worked at Phillips de Pury & Company part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Across the board from admins to specialists, employees were passionate and knowledgable about their field. W place to learn something new everyday.

    Cons

    No merit-based raises (when I worked there at least), rather raises had to accompany a promotion. Chaos amidst upper management. Rigid hierarchy meant junior employees are often treated disrespectfully by clients and management. Zero investment in employees, who are all seen as replaceable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Giving employees even a modicum of autonomy. Invest in their professional development.

    Disorganized, cold, elitist

    I worked at Phillips de Pury & Company full-time

    Pros

    Really none, they paid on time.

    Cons

    Reviewing the London base, words cannot describe how awful the people are you will work with. Cold atmosphere, no one talks to each other, if you have any personality this is not the place for you. Exceptionally elitist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest time in choosing candidates, not based on how aloof they are. Very shocked and I came from a media background, the most unfriendly place on earth, please don't waste your time.
