    I have been working at Wilhelmina Models (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wilhelmina is publicly traded, so their main concern is maximizing a model's billing potential.

    Cons

    Wilhelmina has many models, therefore it is easy to become obsolete and agents can spend less time on any given model's career.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop each and every model even when he or she is steadily booking.
