Great place to work, not enough pay

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Work life balance and learning opportunities are great, but pay is not. You can afford to stay here if you come from money. I believe they do start paying more after a couple years.

Te da la oportunidad de relacionarte con mucha gente

Es buena más sin embargo no hay posibilidad de crecimiento a menos de que te lleves bien con los supervisores




No hay descansos en días feriados

Great Co-Workers, Difficult Supervisors

I love working with the other hourly assistants in my department. We work together as a cohesive unit and definitely get everything done. However, the caveat is that UTA is, at its core, an agency - meaning your supervisor will likely be an agent, which can be brutal at times. This industry is not for the faint of heart or those who do not seek to work 10+ hours a day in an office environment.


Catered lunches, fair pay, good benefits & connections


Limited upward mobility, difficult supervisors to deal with, no flexibility with time

Great Internship

I'd definitely recommend for an internship. UTA gives you a crash course on all aspects of the entertainment industry. There's plenty of opportunity to learn from different assistants and agents while you're interning.

Status oriented

There was not good training or room for growth. Company could not distinguish the difference between co-workers even years after working with them. Not professional.

Forward thinking talent agency

UTA is progressive in their inclusion of minorities and the LBGTQ+ community. Their foundation does good work in both local and international communities.


Good benefits, free snacks.


Long time to get promoted.

As a freelance worker contracted to UTA, I do not have in-depth perspective of the company overall. With that said, their turnaround was quick and efficient.

Tough Environment

Fast-paced and stressful environment. Touts itself as a wonderful and inclusive culture but the management is 100% white. If you're absolutely set on working at a talent agency, UTA is the best out of all the majors, but it's still very cutthroat and you'll never have any job security.

Excellent Place and People

United Talent Agency is a great place to work! The reward from working at UTA is based on what you put into it. As expected, there is plenty of clerical work. However, if you show you can get the clerical stuff done, then you will start to learn more and more about the industry.

Working at United Talent Agency

Working at the United Talent Agency is very different from working anywhere else. The industry is high paced, high volume and the culture revolving it can be a little overwhelming. The company has great benefits.

Entertainment Agency that has expanded a lot over the past decade

UTA is one of the largest and most powerful entertainment agencies in the world. They have rapidly expanded their teams, offerings and clients over the last decade. Specifically, the marketing department is very focused on "entertainment marketing" initiatives and does not so much function as a traditional marketing agency for their brand partners.


Values personal time


Difficult to get things sold through

Exactly What You Expect

I mean, it's a talent agency - it's exactly what you expect. Your happiness will depend on your agent/boss - if s/he is cool then work isn't bad, but if they're awful then you'll hate your life. Long hours, low pay - but OT is easy and (mostly) unchecked so I make decent money here. Half the company is assistants so you'll make lifelong friends which is a nice plus.


Easy to make friends, lots of free food if you're willing to scavenge


Lol. The pay, the hours, and some agents could get away with murder the way they treat their assistants

Agent Trainee

Agent training program is great. The company encourages you to be entrepreneurial and there is a wide array of departments to choose from to set your career path.

Industry leader with tough hours.

UTA is an industry leader in representation with incredible opportunities to learn, refine your work ethic, and get a real sense of how Hollywood works. The pace is fast and assistants are given quite a bit of responsibility from the start. Work/life balance can be very tough to achieve depending on your boss and the department you're in but at the end of the day you get exposed to great clients and truly grow as a professional.

I liked working there due to the location and colleagues

The over all job friendly atmostphere was incredible. I was able to take vacations and not worry about my job when i returned. If it was not for the commute I would still be working there!!!!!!! The friends created during my tender there I still keep in touch with them.......................

pay sucks but it gets your foot in the door

You learn a lot. Hours are long. Music department is more chill though, and growing fast. Free breakfast and drinks, occasionally free lunch. A good place to get your foot in the door, but I believe there are companies out there who actually value their employees. The pay sucks. Make friends with your mailroom class - They'll be an asset to you in the future. Most people leave within a year.

Great if you want to be in that industry

I loved working at UTA. It taught me a great deal about the entertainment industry. I learned all about music and comedy contracts and dealing with promoters. I think that the hardest part of the job was how pretentious the other employees were. I think the most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know the various people at the job. My area was really relaxed and laid back so when it got really busy it could get overwhelming really fast.


free lunch, free bagels


pretentious and spoiled employees, working from the bottom up

Productive and fun place to work with great perks

Everyday was different, which was good. Always busy, there was always something that came up last minute, for example.....new hires, terminations, employee relations, last minute meetings, and employee rate increases. It was great, because it was always a challenge, and good way to stay busy. Had a great team to work with. All were very supportive. I learned to always be focused and be prepared for whatever is to come your way. The work culture was very young, work hard play hard! Management was great, very helpful in all areas. The hardest part of the job was last minute terminations. You never know how that person Is going to take the news. Most enjoyable part, is working with my peers.

A Great Place to learn early

A great place to work and learn how hard, and demanding the entertainment world really is. Hollywood is another beast, and this job does baby you as you move forward and attempt to take the position as an agent in the future.


Work Schedule ease


geared toward a younger group to start early

The company culture is apparent however the lack of management over departments at UTA is even more apparent. No one is leading in integration and cross-collaboration in a large way at UTA.

UTA is a great place to work and build a career in entertainment. A lot can be learned about the industry at an agency and then can be utilized in other areas of entertainment.


Amazing offices, great people, great benefits
