Former Employee - Account Executive in Los Angeles, CA
Former Employee - Account Executive in Los Angeles, CA
Recommends
Approves of CEO

Pros

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

Cons

I 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 Management

Look 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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Experienced and competent co-workers Good benefits Downtown location

    Cons

    Promotions are often of the wrong people into the wrong jobs With few exceptions, managers are ineffective team leaders Director level and above management is, for the most part, out of touch with employees Lack of trust in upper management Initiative to improve culture is being led by CEO and cronies

    Advice to Management

    Managers should be selected and promoted by their ability to lead a team toward common goals, not based on their tenure or success in pet projects Consider programs such as Six Sigma to enact change/growth of focused, competent managers CEO should excuse himself from projects to improve company culture
