Good Company, Tough Industry

Account Executive (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I worked at Corbis

ProsGreat product -- some of the world's best images
Good compensation (if you make sales targets)
Decent benefits
Tends to attract creative, interesting people

ConsI was in the LA office -- there was some downsizing and the office didn't have the exciting vibe of some of the bigger offices. It felt like it was on the side a bit.
The stock photography industry is in decline. Made it harder to make targets (and money) each year.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook for opportunities outside photography.
Don't forget the LA office -- lots of good people there. You are too Seattle-centric there. You need to be more about LA or NY if you want to be a more recognized media company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
