    I have been working at Corbis full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people who do real work. The imagery the toilets were Ok, but beyond that its really hard to find anything complimentary to say about this company Bill Gates needs to come to the office more to find out why he he never made money in over 20 years. Firing folks does not add to the bottom line but it does take away from the top line and creativity.

    Cons

    Senior Management and the entire business vision, or rather lack of it. There is no real teamwork, none of the offices work together. At some point Bill has to pull the plug.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a plan, stop firing anybody with an idea and stop getting the PR team to write the reviews on here. We all know the CEOs approval rating would not even be 20% if it were not for the PR team.

    Pros

    There are a fair number of very dedicated & talented individuals that work at Corbis. Atmosphere is generally pleasant & benefits are good(ish). The recently developed focus on being a product driven organization has the potential to help create internal alignment & drive success if in-fighting executives don't crush it.

    Cons

    Corbis has an amazing ability to take on more than it can do. The company is way over diversified for an organization of its size. Leadership is unable to focus on accomplishing 1 - 3 strategic priorities at a time. Instead the product development organizations take on too many simultaneous projects & fail across the board. Wonder why production sites are down so often?

    While there are many good people, under performers are never held accountable for poor performance. Instead they are provided perks & incentives to do things as simple as showing up for work while high-performers are forced to pick up the slack & punished for others failures. This causes an environment where poor performance is encouraged!

    Poor compensation for those in the tech industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut/spin off non-core business units and focus on doing 1-2 things really well. You're too small to compete across the board, so you should focus excelling at several things.

    Cut 50% of your poor performers & hire back 1/2 half as many at a decent pay rate. They will actually be more productive.
