    Pros

    This was the best team I ever worked with. They were intelligent, creative, agile, and all around solid people. They were not only friendly, but friends-- many spent time together outside of the office.

    You were expected to work hard, but with that came a lot of freedom to get the work done. The employees' opinions mattered and ideas were encouraged and often implemented.

    Management held monthly company wide meetings where they updated us on transitions and plans. The transparency was much appreciated, and contributed largely to the honest and open culture.

    Cons

    Salary was 30%+ below the industry standard.

    Because the company was small, there was often no room to move up, and it was easy to flat line.

    Advice to Management

    You hired a great team, so trust that they can achieve great things-- give employees the opportunity to grow within the company, promote when appropriate, and reward them when they accomplish something great. There wasn't always enough recognition (financially or verbally) when we achieved what was asked of us.

    Pros

    Hard working, smart, and positive team. Exciting (or messy, depenging on your agility) start-up environment. A great place to learn online art sales and consignment sourcing. Good place for a self-motivated person with diverse interests.

    Cons

    Very long hours for little pay. Upper management lacks deep and meaningful experience and this can cause severe issues with the team. Low pay for sometimes extremely stressful work. Sexist management. Extremely volatile start-up environment with almost no job security.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees a rate that is appropriate for their value to the company and experience. Try to learn more about the fast paced changes in the art world and listen to the veterans.
