No commitment to creative excellence. A very sad place.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsCoworkers 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.

ConsSenior 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 Senior ManagementPlease 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Avoid tech side of the operation

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    I worked at Getty Images full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Decent pay, you get to go home at the end… Cons: CYA culture.
