Great pay, advancement opportunity, and vacation package, but limited health/FMLA perks

Studio Manager (Former Employee)
Nashville, TN

I worked at Portrait Innovations full-time for more than 3 years

ProsExcellent earning potential, fast advancement, strong team environment, goal-oriented, relocation allowance

ConsMore of a sales job than a photography job, no health insurance, no FMLA leave, relocation is often necessary to advance

Advice to Senior ManagementI only worked under one studio manager, who was ambitious, thorough, and dedicated the store and staff's success, and had 4 different regional managers (I worked in 3 different regions), who fit the same description.

In my opinion, the only way that management could improve, would be to emphasize the sales aspect of the job more in recruiting and hiring. All to often, new recruits would have lots of photography experience, but no sales skills, and would be very inflexible in learning or understanding the process.

I would also recommend a more solid cultivation of managers. I noticed that there were often managers who got promoted who should not have been, and their studios and staff suffered deficits and high turnover as a result.

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