    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Depending on the desk, get a lot of training and are involved in your boss's business. Good networking opportunities with agents if you put yourself out there. Opportunities to go to premieres and client events (again, depending on the desk). Learn a ton about Hollywood and the ins/outs of the business. Good starting point to launch your career. You can land any job at a studio, production company, etc. after working hard here.

    Cons

    Low pay. Long Hours. Sometimes a volatile work environment depending on the desk you are on. No upward mobility to grow. Your experience is heavily dependent on who you work for and if you are well-liked.

    Cons

    No one above you will ever care to know your name. Working with Interns/New hires is like hanging at USC campus. Low pay. Unrewarding tasks. Ego monsters all around.
