    I worked at WME full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This job is a great place to make connections. It's a great young office with lots of people to meet.

    Cons

    The frat house mentality and poor treatment of assistants is hard to stand. You need a thick skin to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of the harassment of assistants.
