Business Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 27, 2018
Thrilled to have worked there and been part of such an Art Industry Leader. Learning the behind the scenes of the business in Buyer Accounts and the Business Office was a lifetime experience I will never forget.
Registrar (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 26, 2018
Unless you want to walk into a job that features non-stop stress and mandatory overtime, do not work at Sotheby's. I worked in the CR department, and the art flew by, hundreds of objects a day, without stopping. The place is chaotic, staffed mostly by people under 30 with little or no previous job experience in the arts, and as people are promoted, their work hours increase exponentially. I spoke to many people there who were working 65-80 hours per week. The manager in the department was fine, but upper management is clueless about what goes on. There are many, many temps and contract workers, as people quit very regularly, so there is a great deal of confusion about how the work is to be done.
Office Coordinator (Former Employee) – West Sussex – August 13, 2017
Management was kind, understanding, and fair. I left due to relocation. The workplace culture was very positive. The hardest part of my job was pre-review days. Staging for viewing items on auction was extremely important.
Freelance Designer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 12, 2017
As a freelancer, I had no trouble easing into the work at Sotheby's. My colleagues were all very friendly and easy to work with and I learned a lot of things from my managers in the months that I worked there.
Everyone at Sotheby's is very professional and hard working and it was a pleasure working with such a great team of people.
