I have been working at WME full-time (Less than a year)
A great work environment. An incredible group of agents and assistants. A real family environment. The agents really seem to want to help their assistants succeed and vice versa. There is a great team mentality that starts from the top down. Everyday I look forward to coming into work! Two weeks paid vacation to be used anytime, plus another two weeks paid vacation around Christmas/New Years.
Multiple cliques tend to form. If you don't find a way to fit in with some sort of group, it can be difficult. Starting in the mailroom is a great way to form a bond with your fellow mailroom/ticket counts/floater employees. That bond will last throughout your tenure at the company!
Advice to Management
Additional and ongoing training for assistants will improve quality of work.
I emailed HR my resume and received a response the same day. We set up a meeting for the next week, and I met with the internship coordinator. The interview was short and to the point. The program seemed like a great way to learn the ins and outs of the agency world.
