Artistic - Art & Jewellery Specialists' and passionate environment
Diamond & Jewellery Senior Manager (Former Employee), Geneva, SwitzerlandAugust 13, 2013
Pros: free work time
Cons: extra-hours - working during weekends
- Coordination and management for all jewels, collections, precious stones submitted for sale.
- Contact with sellers, potential buyers, collectors, diamonds & precious stones dealers.
- Coordination with the "Precious metal control", GIA and other different gemmological institutions.
- Inventory management (highly demanding responsibility: transport – more... insurance, security and customers' confidentiality)
- Annual catalogue realization as well as posters, invitations advertising before the sale, in collaboration with photographers and printers.
- Exhibition and "Dealer's dinner" organization and management.
- Management and supervision of written and telephone bids.

What I learned: To be multifunctional, precise, a professional coordinator, flexible and work with highly demanding people.

My co-workers: Coordination with all team members with different responsibilities in order to deliver a high quality catalogue and objects for the auction sale. Dynamic and enthusiastic attitude demanded.

The hardest part of the job: Too many extra-hours, working during weekends under strong pressure.

The most enjoyable part of the job: Be in contact with the most extraordinary collections, jewels, diamonds, works of art, organize exhibitions in other cities (New York, Hong Kong, Singapore...) before the sale in Geneva. Realize a successful sale towards the competitors (Sotheby's). – less

Dynamic Company with Great Corporate Culture
Intern (Former Employee), New York, NYJuly 17, 2012
Pros: proximity to view art
Cons: high pressure
Working in an auction house is an amazing experience. The chance to view museum quality art works at your own leisure is unrivaled. The quick turnover for each period of art is quick and one must be on their toes at all times. An immunity to stress in a high pressurized environment also helps.

Lack of values
Design (Former Employee), New York, NYMay 1, 2012
Pros: art
Cons: values
Management seems to have no substantial integrity... keep in mind their former Management was convicted for a price scandal with Sotheby's. This culture dribbles it's way down to the bottom where people are taught that it's not the value of your work, who you are, your character that counts... It's the relationships you have with power and wealth that – more... matters most. You have to be great at schmoozing with wealthy people to make it here or you have a personal connection that can pull you ahead. The only positives about working at Christie's is the Art. You are surrounded by it. But you're also surrounded by a culture that will seem unfair. But hey that's high society. – less
