Eliasson Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Olafur Eliasson is a Danish–Icelandic artist known for sculptures and large-scale installation art employing elemental materials such as light, water, and air temperature to enhance the viewer’s experience. In 1995 he established Studio Olafur Eliasson in Berlin, a laboratory for spatial research.
The following article on theartsdesk.com mentions, "Now Tate Modern is staging a survey of the Danish artist Olafur Eliasson's work. In Real Life is interesting and informative, but the wow factor that changes people’s perceptions is largely absent. A bronze cast of a melted ice lump may be good for selfies, but is too cerebral to press home its message. The fault is often poor installation. At the National Gallery last year, Room for one colour was realised as an enclosed space filled with intense yellow light. It stopped you in your tracks; everything looked flat, sickly and unreal. Normal perception was revealed to be relative, provisional – a mere trick of the light. At Tate Modern the piece is reduced to rows of neon tubes hung outside the lifts; they are scarcely noticeable, let alone transformative."

Sr. Account Executive Contract Services (Former Employee) says"Eliassen was once a strong recruiting firm out of Wakefield, MA.

Salesperson (Current Employee) says"Eliassen was a great company to work for and promote; they used to take care of their consultants and employees alike. Within the last three years, they have beefed up on middle management, and have opened some brick and mortar expansion offices. They do not promote within for the expansion roles and value the opinions of those they have been beating in the market for years, over the employees that got them there. Cons: lack of respect for contractors, no vision, no room for internal growth"

Once in management, the expectation is at least nine hours a day with some holidays and weekends."
