Wonderful arts organization
Executive Assistant to Director of Development (Former Employee) –  SantFrancisco, CAApril 27, 2017
The San Francisco Symphony is a dynamic arts organization and an exciting place to work. SFS is a good employer and considers its employees and attempts to include them in the work and performances of the Symphony. I experienced a very collegial atmosphere and other staff members were very helpful and welcoming to me. I was in a contract position and had there been another opening would have liked to stay.
Pros
Dynamic arts organization with many concerts and events.
Cons
Not very transparent in the hiring process.

Call Center of SF Symphony is a nightmare
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMarch 13, 2014
Don't get me wrong, I LOVED cold calling. I found it exhilarating to make a sale, and liked the hours.

But the pay is awful, your first portion of your commission goes to making up their sub-minimum wage pay. Then the commission is capped. So even if you're killing it, like REALLY killing it, top caller, you're making max $17/hour. And that's only for a month or so.

Call center manager is really an emotional wreck and verbally abusive. I hope he finds happiness.
Pros
Sales experience
