Pros

-Agree with other recent posts. Very Social company to work for. Nice monthly onsite events during work hours if you are able to enjoy without your boss staring you down. After hours social events are fun as well.

Cons

-Favoritism is very prevalent and in the Sales department it can make or break your success there.
-Agree with other posts too many managers and unnecessary unproductive meetings eat up your entire day sometimes.
-Downside of being such a social office is the constant gossiping you hear.
-Ineffective management techniques and sales coaching.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat everyone on your teams fairly. Dont give out more leads to the people you like or help them more. And do not reward lazy workers.

    I have been working at Getty Images full-time (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
