    Pros

    Good Photographers, Casual Working Enviornment. Nice ppl but a lot of lifers who could never get another job who just sit there staring into space or playing solitare on the computer.

    Cons

    Interesting images, but everything is digitized so no real involvement accept filling orders for clients. Photographers are part of an old boys club and not doing anything that ground breaking. Sense of desperation in organization that there wont be able to keep the staff. Low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Shut the NY office down and run if out of Paris and London.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Magnum Photos (New York, NY) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Easy, Informal, more of seeing if you would fit into the company culture and be willing to take a low salary, in exchange for an easy job. The boss was nice and asked friendly questions.
