I worked at Magenta Studio Photo part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Fun, young co-workers and a good environment if you are learning the basics or just trying to pay your pay through school.

Cons

Management was too young and too inexperienced!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give your photographers more freedom. You try to be at the forefront of creativity when it comes to family photos but you limit anyone attempting to actually be original.

Sales people are not photographers and photographers are not necessarily sales people. Commission should be distributed differently.

    Pros

    Great staff and a very energetic, fun and dynamic work environment. Always a pleasure meeting clients from all different walks of life.

    Cons

    The management is horrible. They try to push your creativity but at the same time strictly regulate your creativity to adhere to their own rules. They, only as of recently, have started to employ photographers with 0 professional experience. They pride themselves for being a uniquely creative studio and yet the more they hire people who are not meant to be photographers, the more they are bringing their stature down to that of a "snap-studio" (i.e. Sears or Walmart). The communication between the store managers and head office is poor. They NEED to wipe out all store managers and start fresh with fun, intuitive and knowledgable people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff! Respond to your staff complaints!
