    Pros

    some great minded people with a true passion for photography. nice offices.

    Cons

    a corporate culture at it's worst: no risk taking, everyone is busy protecting their back, email obsessed, unhealthy competition between NY and Seattle office, constant layoffs, useless meetings, arrogance.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking of yourself as a big profitable company and start thinking as a start up with little cash.

    Pros

    -Amazing archive and historical collection
    -Some of the best photography/photographers on the market today.
    -Working with very skilled employees - a few of which still have a passion for photography and carry the torch of knowledge.
    -Learn a lot from colleagues.

    Cons

    -No job security, layoffs are annual.
    -No growth - promotions are rare.
    -Company focus is on money, period - employees and content providers come last.
    -Goals never consider the content providers, unless they're "high profile" and are willing to work with the company, on the company's terms
    -Culture is non-existant
    -No commitment to planing direction and a lot of flip flopping on goals.

    Advice to Management

    -Stop using layoffs as a cost cutting method - The company is losing precious talent
    -Stop following in the footsteps of the competition, create something new and find your own identity
    -Listen to your clients' needs
    -Allow employee evaluations of their directors and upper management - you'll be surprised what you find out
