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

    Pros

    Great benefits & great atmosphere among other executive assistants. Two-week training program is top-notch. Best training among the big four (ICM, CAA, WME, UTA)

    Cons

    Cut-throat, high-stress, low pay. little help from HR with aggressive behavior. Some executive assistants could not handle the stress and had health-related problems as they were afraid to leave their desks and drop a call.

    Advice to Management

    Training is excellent but stress kills

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at WME part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic exposure and a great educational experience on the inner workings of an agency.

    Cons

    Too many interns. It was next to impossible to make a connection with an agent.

    Advice to Management

    Hire fewer interns so there's less competition just to deliver mail.
