I have been working at Corbis as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

Friendly people and a company that has a great working atmosphere and culture. They really care about their employees, and it shows in all of our day to day activities.

Cons

The only downside for me is commuting to Seattle, but even that is not much of a con because they give me an ORCA card to catch the train.

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

    Pros

    Good Team Name, Good Owner Name, Good content. Friendship with team members. good company activities and parties - though the QB rarely shows up.

    Cons

    No Quarterback or a good running back or a good wide receiver (and I am not talking 'great' just 'good')
    Continuous reshuffling of players
    IT sucks and so does it leadership gal
    So many free agents leaving the ship

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some good team leaders and key positions re-filled.

    I have been working at Corbis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing imagery, amazing collection and history of collections. Hard to find any other Pros - even the people are leaving.

    Cons

    incapable top leadership. extremely poor IT leadership (oh I forgot - there is only one IT leader left) - but glassdoor is filled with comments on her so I will not add more.
    no direction. working on projects that make no sense. dollars spent on useless items. very low morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to the chairman: get new people - at least in the top 10 positions.
