    I have been working at Getty Images full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Sociable culture with lots of HR-sponsored events, lots of smart people, good benefits, charity matching program up to $1000 per employee per year, plenty of opportunities for both horizontal and vertical movement, promote from within rather than hiring outside management, good work-life balance, decent compensation

    Cons

    Endless reorgs are disruptive, have embraced extreme programming practices to an unhealthy degree, developers spend a lot of time on things other than writing code that implements the requirements

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Challenge the need to cover every line of code with testing or build frameworks or do pair programming at all times and increase emphasis on efficient delivery
