fast-paced, creative company for those who thrive on change

Senior Management (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsCreative fun people, good benefits, great location and environment, good life/work balance. Leaner leadership tier leaves greater opportunities to impact from all levels.

ConsFrequent change in leadership, direction, attrition and lay-offs. Trade-off of sub-par compensation for more growth opportunities and challenges. Leadership can range from senior and disconnected to junior and naive.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a strong CIO, focus on revenue generating initiatives, stop wasiting time/effort/focus on side projects. Be honest with employees and truly address morale issues, not just white wash them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

The company values transient executive messiahs over… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Corbis in the toilet!

    General Employee (Former Employee)
    Seattle, WA

    I worked at Corbis full-time for more than a year


    Pros: The people are awesome sans upper management. Cons: Frankly, Corbis is circling the drain. Out of touch individuals are being allowed to make architectural and infrastructure decisions with little to no experience… Advice to Senior Management: Quit, just quit. You are over your heads and… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
