    I worked at United Talent full-time

    Pros

    You get what you put it working at one of the top agencies of the country. Although the Nashville office is a small group, there are opportunities.

    Cons

    NO DIVERSITY AT ALL. All agents are males and 90% of the support staff are females. Long hours with low pay (may have changed now). If you're "different" than everyone else, you don't really have anyone rooting for you to succeed.

    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at United Talent full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    great talent roster across many verticals, the name of the company has cache and can help you knock on doors and get meetings, nice office space in Beverly Hills, opportunity to work out of outer offices with approval, the UTA foundation team is the heart of the company

    Cons

    the company culture values "shark-like" behavior (which can mean success, but doesn't mean that people are treated the best), people working in silos, feeling like a cog/a bottom line number at the end of the day, seldom to no chances for growth as an Exec or Agent unless you want to try to become a Partner, no transparency regarding salary negotiations/bonus structure

    Former Employee - Executive Assistant 

    I worked at United Talent full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is grad school in entertainment. You will get a lot out of the experience and it will certainly help you gain a foundation for understanding how the industry works. Will also meet a lot of other assistants and colleagues at a big agency like this.

    Cons

    It may not be the most fun experience and it all depends on how good or crazy your boss is.
