    Pros

    Great insurance benefits. Really enjoy birthday celebrations every month.

    Cons

    Lots of sexism in the department. Older men viewed as being more competent and in "senior" positions while the women hired are always younger and placed in junior positions. Lack of communication. Team building has died down and so has group effort. Everyone being separated individually and fighting over productivity numbers. Monetary raises almost non existent.

    I worked at Heritage Auctions full-time

    Pros

    Heritage Auctions has a large number of very good people who work in the trenches for the company - from experts to assistants to behind-the-scenes folks. Heritage also offers a very competitive benefits package...though this can be at the expense of salary or other perks. If you're working with the right people, and for the right people, there are solid opportunities available.

    Cons

    If you're in the wrong department - either your job title is, or you're split between departments, there can be large issues with figuring out ways to accomplish the expectations set. Certain managers have trouble articulating their expectations in ways that are sensical, and there is a lack of dialogue often present. Bonuses are limited based on the often arbitrary-seeming internal grading.

    Advice to Management

    Make company policies more transparent and be more receptive to feedback and dialogue with employees and coworkers.
