    Former Intern - Intern - Hourly in Eden Prairie, MN

    I worked at Lifetouch as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Best people, great teams, new structure of the business lines in marketing is a great move

    Cons

    Lifetouch is behind the times in terms of technology and business processes. They have all the ideas, they need to implement quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the ideas from the bottom up and make them happen. Stop getting projects stuck in all the corporate mumble jumble. Everyone knows what needs to happen.

    Pros

    Benefits for full time, creating memories for families and watching children grow

    Cons

    hard to get hours for team members with most hours as on call hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Labor model needs to be more flexible to be able to give more hours to team members and compensation should be much greater for the immense responsibilities you place on your studio staffs
