    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Intelligent colleagues, great benefits packages, beautiful and relevant photography, the existence of numerous offices outside the United States gives relevant global perspective on stock photography usage trends.

    Cons

    Corporate direction often clashed with customers' needs, major layoffs 1-2 times every year, inconsistent rewards for job performance, stagnant career paths.

    Advice to Management

    Provide consistent recognition and rewards for annual job performance, listen to the needs of editorial clients (not just advertising/commercial clients), provide opportunities for colleagues to learn other jobs in the company, provide mentoring at all levels.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Work-life balance, excellent knowledgeable employees, good pay and benefits. Digital Media is a cool and contemporary industry and subject matter is very interesting to work with and leverage technology for

    Cons

    Company touts egalitarian workplace values, and preaches employee retention measures then re-orgs almost annually, losing all credibility. The employees are dispirited and no longer trust management. Corbis is always chasing the shiny object and never follows through on any concrete, innovative idea. They lack innovation and so they turn to cost cutting as their method for prosperity. It is sad, all those talented people in a company that cant lead then anywhere,

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to someone that can run it. After 20 + years, Corbis is yet to be profitable. Corbis needs results or new leadership. Stop treating employees as costs to be eliminated before the last of your talent walks out the door
