A company that cares and a product you can get behind

Headquarters Employee (Current Employee) Eden Prairie, MN

ProsOne of the best things about Lifetouch is employee-ownership in the form of ESOP. While this provides an amazing retirement benefit, it is really about having a vested stake in a business that you truly care about. Everybody has the ability to impact both the short AND long term success of the organization and, being privately held, we don't live and die by our quarterly results. It is also an organization filled with some of the nicest, most genuine people you will ever meet who are truly passionate about our industry and product. It's easy to fall in love with a photography company whose core focus is capturing invaluable memories. The amount of philanthropic work and money the company donates to the communities it serves is truly remarkable (think Target, they just don't advertise it).

ConsThe industry is complex and changes rapidly, but this is offset by the fact that you are working for a highly respected leader in the photography space. Lifetouch's corporate structure can be challenging to navigate as a newbie. It takes awhile to learn the ropes, but once the light bulb turns on you realize what an amazing place it truly is. The company is also fiscally conservative, which means you don't always have the newest and the best of everything. That being said, they do invest where it makes sense (and, to be honest, this strategy has helped the company stay in a very strong financial position compared to competitors).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Photographer

    Photographer - School (Former Employee) Maple Grove, MN

    I worked at Lifetouch full-time for less than a year


    Pros: It will depend on the office you report to but overall I really enjoyed the people I worked with. That is what made this job… Cons: Pay is not great, especially considering they do not meet IRS mileage reimbursement rates. The reason I would refer a friend to this job is… Advice to Senior Management: Better pay would ensure better employees and better competition.
