    I worked at Phillips Auctioneers for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Be surrounded by art, design, jewels and attractive people.

    Cons

    Be surrounded by attitude, condescension, and the destruction of art by greed (but it goes with the territory). The workers are seen as cogs in the machine.
