Pros

-Both the innovative software and end printed product are something you will be proud to represent.
-The passion behind the folks who have worked here for years shows through their hard work and dedication. It makes new employees easy to acclimate easily.
-The new side of the business; Picaboo Yearbook promises a lot of hope for growth and success not just for the company but for its customers.
-There has always been a learning curve no matter what department you work for which makes it a challenge but also a good opportunity to learn.
-Flexible schedules, fun and comfortable environment in the office.

Cons

-Some senior management is not in office which makes it tough for on location employees to stay focused on the same goals and execute successfully.

-There are a lot of changes constantly happening within the company which are not always communicated by department managers to their department employees. These changes make it hard for employees to understand and accept.

-Not enough collaboration within the entire company to get feedback on new ideas/products. Many times some employees felt their was favoritism or their opinion was not valued.

    Pros

    Quality. Service. People.
    Picaboo has an amazing product - both the software and the physical printed product. Customers are evangelical in their passion for the company and products, which has been imperative to the company's growth.

    Senior leadership fosters the focus on customer service and experience. It starts with them and feeds down to everyone in the organization. Everyone in the company is empowered to work with the team to make sure the customer has an incredible experience. When things go wrong, the leaders of the company pull together to craft a solution and communicate it to the customer base. When mistakes are made, they are committed to making it right.

    There are a lot of opportunities for growth at Picaboo. During my 5+ years with the company, I held three different titles and had many different functional areas of responsibility. I was trusted to make the right decisions for the company and customer every day. If you are the kind of person who likes to wear different hats and get your hands into varying aspects of the company, Picaboo is a good place to do it.

    Cons

    Start ups are challenging and definitely not for everyone. There are resource constraints that can make it difficult to grow and achieve goals.

    The photo gift space is very competitive. Picaboo has survived while others have vanished. Innovation and flexibility will be key to future growth and success, especially as consumers change how they take and enjoy photos in a mobile digital world.

    Pros

    Employee! They work really hard, they treat Picaboo like their own company and everyone tries to go over and beyond for customers and coworkers.

    Cons

    Co - CEOs. It's a joke. They have no idea what they are doing. They have no experience. They encourage the environment of gossiping, favoritism, firing anyone who do not agree with them. They should get award for micro managers. It's a toxic environment. Run before you interview.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the talent you hire. Stop treating employees like slave and peons. Stop micro managing. Learn to lead and manage people and treat everyone like human.
