Distribution Coordinator (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 7, 2018
Genuine creative and kind people, gives you the freedom to get your work done at your own style, as long as the end result is up to standard and completed by the deadline. Very solid structure in place and professional team is ready to adapt to unplanned changes, so urgent requests never damage the morale. Amazing support system and respectable office culture that many of the newer "Start-ups" today are lacking.
work-from-home option, incredible benefits package, no micro-management
Graduate Assistant (Former Employee) – London – April 27, 2018
I worked hard to get experience in a business and get 5 A levels, a business qualification and a degree in History of Art and got a job easily within the auction house, however, I struggled with the competitive cut throat culture and left after a year. I am sure there were really great people there, but I was exhausted from the 12 hour days, minimal holiday available and Devil Wears Prada situations.
long hours, snobby, no job security, no paid leave for graduates, being usurped by interns from wealthy backgrounds
