friendly team guidance interesting work/tasks in the beginning (only!) , a steep learning curve
slow career progression not many options to move within the company

Exciting, creative, challenging. The best part is you can work on art works all the time.
Company performance can be easily affected by regional economy.

Brand name , looks good on your CV , prime office location
Cost cutting and saving,- high attrition rate .poor management My experience - ppl changed frequently and “ lost in transition “ , hardly finding the information , limited or lack of resources and support , merely asking you to do the job , complete the tasks . My view is , to certain extent , its company responsibility to provide reasonable resources and support for your employees.

Expanding your network and a good representation of art business at the highest level
Very repetitive intern tasks which may wear you out

Great for stability and work-life separation.
Terribly mismanaged and under-resourced. Structural issues cannot be solved on individual level.
- 3.020 Sept 2023Product and TechnologyCurrent Employee, more than 5 years
Good for a couple years of salary fighting dysfunction Lots of smart people
No long term vision. Company is over 200 years old and they only barely know what they want to do in the next year. Way too focused on trimming costs instead of innovating Lots of very smart people but they are always leaving because they're overqualified for what the company uses their time doing The biggest problem you'll face is just the organization itself5

Everyone in the management was nice at the time
Pay could be better but it was on par with the other auction houses

Excellent positions for young people. Young CEO who believes in change.
No downtime. Always at the mercy of last min deadlines. Hard to plan business.
