No commitment to creative excellence. A very sad place.

Pros

Coworkers can make work enjoyable, and fun once in a while. Office kitchen perks are ok and the coffee is delicious! The PR machine is solid here because they really lead you to believe that Getty is some amazing, progressive working environment, and technologically advanced too... but sadly, it's run just like traditional retail.

Cons

Senior managers to mid-level managers all have favorites - and they're an extremely stodgy lot too. They lack any real leadership skills and pride themselves on process and who-knows-who. Terribly big egos with no heart who LOVE to discuss low-level control issues. It's a media sweatshop for dead enders. Bright, efficient, happy people need not apply here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please strive to be better than the senior management at McDonalds. Please don't keep us in minimum roles and salaries - that's why you get minimum, complacent output and some pretty sad employees. Also, please hire people of color, it's the 21st century already.

    Pros

    Decent pay, you get to go home at the end of the day, great location. CEO seems like a nice guy.

    Cons

    CYA culture. Feckless middle management whose approach to everything is "throw under the bus first, ask questions later", miserable employees, limited opportunity. Their whole "no silos" slogan is a steaming pile of bullsh. This company is more silo'd than a North Korean hillside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit hiring technical managers who don't have at least a basic understanding of the technology.
