Painting Assistant in Gloucestershire
on 28 September 2018
Excellent people, shame about the boss.
The studio is very friendly, 2 x 15 min tea breaks with free tea, coffee, biscuits and fruit and an hour for lunch all paid. It's very much 9-5, no one works a minute past 5 but don't ever be late! The people are lovely, hardworking, creative types. There are homemade cakes for your birthday, shared staff lunches and fun work parties at Christmas and in the Summer. The down side is, the work can be quite factory-like, they don't have windows or air-conditioning so in the Summer it's stuffy, fumy and doesn't feel healthy but don't complain as they will have you marked as a trouble maker. In general keep your head down it's a very hierarchical company. It's also not a secure job, every few years they make redundancies. If you are vegan or ethically minded it's also going to get you down after a while.
NDA in NDA

Some great staff however if you don't fit in to their way of thinking (click) you will not last.
Should you be from an art background this is probably a place for you. Personally I'm not, after a talk with the "man himself" I was assured that I was what they was looking for to progress the company way of thinking. This turned out to be very different and after a very short amount of time I realized that. It has some fantastic people with an opportunity to be part of a truly lifechanging view. That being said it will be down to the individual to find out if the exposure be good or not.
Art Technician (NDA) in Stroud
on 6 February 2021
Factory working. Talented but disposable workforce.
I worked at Science for over three years.The company is owned by a famous artist (google the company).The artist requires a team of talented people to realise his concepts, produce artwork and run the business that generates millions for him.The team (when there was one) were made up of talented and, on the whole, nice people, but the management and HR Merry-go-round is not much fun (3 Studio Directors in 3 years).The studio is run like a factory, with rigid tea breaks (and a biscuit allowance).During my three years there were multiple rounds of redundancies to remove staff. These ‘redundant’ positions were largely re-staffed within in a matter of months. The business is effectively run by lawyers, and staff are treated as disposable (see the company history of redundancies). I and the vast majority of staff were laid off at the end of Oct 2020.If job security, dignity and being appreciated at work are important to you, Science may not be a good fit.

Studio Technician in Glengall Road, Peckham
on 13 July 2019
unsupportive, discouraging, nepotistic,
My role at Science was vague and unconsidered. I was given absolute minimal support as a new arrival and was often required to work alone all day. I was frequently given technical tasks that usually require two people and expected to accomplish them single handedly. Moreover, I was often not given a proper briefing on tasks, which then required me to work overtime. When working with other technicians, I experienced low-key comments about my age/ gender. I felt anxious a lot. Having said this, I enjoyed eating lunch with colleagues at the studio; the painter's and fabricators that work there are sweethearts (It's just a shame about the managers).
