Current Employee - Manager in Seattle, WA
Current Employee - Manager in Seattle, WA

I have been working at Corbis

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Former Employee - Sales in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at Corbis

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
