Pros

Fun work environment; Get to work with children; Get to use creativity for 99% of the job

Cons

Some corporate policies could be changed; some managers play favorites; Marketing needs to CHANGE COUPONS - stop giving away free sheets, they should make it "buy one sheet, get one free" - otherwise people come in for appointments and use their coupon, order one sheet, and walk out without paying anything, then the studio employees get in trouble for not having a good sales average

Advice to Management

CHANGE COUPONS - instead of having a coupon that gives away free sheets, make it "buy one sheet, get one free". That way it is still possible for studio employees to maintain a decent sales average.
Corporate needs to stop holding studio managers and employees accountable for guests not booking appointments or showing up for their appointment. Also,

    Ridiculous- unrealistic expectations, with poor training!

    Pros

    Can't think of any pros to work for this company.

    Cons

    High stress and frustration. Inconsistent hours, low pay, and travel which requires the use of your own vehicle without compensation. Equipment was constantly failing during the shoots. Lack of professionalism at work site with profanity being used daily. Photography manager wanted to be friends with only certain employees and showed favoritism in the workplace as well as with scheduling more favorable hours to her "friends".

    Advice to Management

    Hire competent photography managers who can better utilize training, and keep closer tabs on what is occurring at the local levels.

    Pros

    - paid training taught be experienced managers
    - Got to know my coworkers well as there were only a handful of photographers at the studio
    - actually a fun job, I love photography and working with kids

    Cons

    - management was hard to get in touch with
    - I was not trained to deal with problems with the equipment, and we had a lot of problems…
    - computers and editing software could benefit from updates
    - sometimes kids are awful
