Good company but unstable

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

I worked at Corbis full-time

ProsNot an 8 to five job. There is some flexibility in hours. The pay is not high but it's liveable. The people at this company make the job - they're excellent.

ConsThere are requirements for working every other Friday night. The size of the team determines how many Friday nights you work. Recent layoffs of long-term employees have destroyed the tribal knowledge base.

Advice to Senior ManagementSettle. Set one long-range plan and stay with it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

I worked at Corbis full-time for more than 3 years


Pros: First, until recently, the company attracted very talented technology resources (unfortunately, as inside stories are coming out, this may be one the decline). Second, the… Cons: Other reviewers have pointed out the incompetence of IT leadership. I can't improve upon it, except to say it is only… Advice to Senior Management: First order of business, please stop the bloodletting, that is, letting go of the most senior people. Second, go beyond copying competition; be the leader… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
