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

I have been working at Corbis

Pros

The company has made strategic acquisitions and partnership over the past year -- which will contribute to the success of this year. I also work with great people who care about their work and want to make sure we reach our business objectives.

Cons

There seems to be little efforts on retention and we've lost several good people. We not only need to make sure we're recruiting the best, but then also working to keep them long-term.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I appreciate the recent efforts that have been made to show that you understand how employees are feeling, that you want to make changes and focus on employees this year. I'm looking forward to seeing what is implemented and if it improves the overall energy and morale.

    Former Employee - Account Executive  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Former Employee - Account Executive in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at Corbis

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
