I have been working at United Talent full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Stepping stone to a better position.

Cons

Other assistants and agents are unfriendly, little to no pay, extremely long hours.

Advice to Management

Treat the assistants better. Of course there is a high turn over rate when everyone is miserable.

    I worked at United Talent full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Foot in the door in the industry, access.

    Cons

    Low pay, stressful environment, long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more career guidance to your assistants. Not all will become agents, so why waste their time? High turnover results in more time training new assistants, so give more incentives for people to stick around. 'Access' is not enough (aka listening into phonecalls.)

    I worked at United Talent as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast-paced, friendly co-workers, get to see celebrities, great weather in California.

    Cons

    High turnover, stressful, menial work such as fetching coffee and dry cleaning, low pay, long hours and many of the higher ups are certifiably insane (but there is also a good chance you end up with a nice boss, which I did)
