    I worked at Gerardy Photography as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The company was very easy to work for. Management was never degrading to the employees. All the supervisors were kind and genuinely nice people. Their work flow as far as transporting equipment from location to location was well thought out system which was a combination of time efficiency and money saving solutions.

    Cons

    I would say the hours aren't the best. The days were often ten or more hours during the busy months. Then when things slowed down it was hard to get any hours at all. I think the management has a hard time dealing with problem employees. I found there to be a lot of bickering amongst the photographers and their helpers. Very petty things that should have been squashed by management but they would turn a blind eye to the problem cases in hopes they would just get better on their own.

    Pros

    The best thing about working here was interacting with children and the bonuses I received for being on-time, gas mileage and holidays.

    Cons

    Constant traveling around the county and poor management decisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice for management would be to respect your employees more. I always felt as though they were talking down to the employees, which I think lead to a high level of turnover.

    Pros

    Very supportive and friendly support staff. Small company that is run by the family, which must be great if your part of the family.

    Cons

    Benefits are non-existent. Management is unreliable and dysfunctional. Expectations are not defined. Turn over is very high. Internal processes are from the 80's. There is no IT department or any IT help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on fixing internal issues rather than what the competition is doing.

    Negative Outlook
