Pros: opportunity to see world's greatest works of art and to learn about the business, great networking opportunity
Cons: you will work really hard and regret working hard for them.
It's pretty simple - if you are one of the following, you'll do fine:
1) A business getter
2) A specialist who is the best at he/she does
3) An extremely smooth talker
4) A descendent of a super wealthy family, most likely a client
5) A graduate from Sotheby's Institute of Art (sometimes)
Otherwise, learn as much as you can to build up your asset – more... and find another job. You might hesitate because some of the colleagues are truly knowledgeable and amicable but their management team will not be hesitant to release you once you are no longer considered a "valuable asset".
There is no one genuinely happy at their job nor is there anyone who can inspire. Those who want a normal life quit their jobs because they are miserable without the proper compensation. – less
