    Pros

    Nordstrom discount / something to do / learned what I am capable of dealing with.

    Cons

    This place is a toxic environment. The HR department is completely screwed up and management will pit people against each other to get their agenda accomplished. There is no problem solving or common sense and the person who schedules the lines intentionally overbooks the studios for no reason! They will promote people based on cliques or "test" people out promising a promotion over and over again when they have no budget for them then return them to their original position when they are done. As a photographer this place is way below industry standards when it comes to respect and creativity. The pay is laughable, and the amount of stress and hours in return... NOT WORTH IT.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. Learn some human decency. Do what you say you are going to do and just be honest & straightforward with your teams.


  8. It's a fine starter job, but expect burnout

    Pros

    People are mostly nice. Casual atmosphere, which can be good. They buy bagels on the first friday of the month...

    Cons

    Work is very assembly line-ish and isolating, very little room for creativity. Higher up management is unapproachable, although the immediate supervisors are okay. Overall, a stark, sparse environment with one goal: hitting the bottom line. Oh, and the pay is substandard.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more. Find a way to streamline the work they do. Stop gossiping in the kitchen. And stop having so many unnecessary meetings.
