    Terrible management. Company keeps hiring photographers and then never listens to them, making terrible products.

    Pros

    Pros: Catered lunches. HR team is nice and most of the employees are great.

    Cons

    Middle management is horrible and frustrating to work for. Goals, requirements, deliverables are not clearly spelled out. Feedback is not given clearly. Communication is overall very poor, resulting in frustration and wasted time, and projects having to be done over and over again because direction can't be given either from the get go, or to make corrections and achieve desired change. Micro-management, even within management rolls.

    "Work-life balance" is a joke, it's the start up culture and mentality for sure. Poor prioritization and time management leads to everything being PRIORITY 1o and crisis mode to get everything done before deadlines.

    Camera company with no photographers - and when they do hire photographers they don't listen to them - or think that they know better - resulting in frustrating/not user friendly products which are difficult to represent.

    Totally unrealistic about the real user and current market for the newer product, and unwilling to listen and make realistic adaptations for that market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN to the PHOTOGRAPHERS that you have there. They are your best resources. There is a reason that they all keep leaving.

    There are a few managers/middle managers who are sinking the ship. No one wants to work for them. Consider they might be the problem?
