    An amazing photo community with amazing people

    Business Development (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsGreat people, wide reaching product, small teams with big impact, user-centric on delivering the best features to its users.

    ConsStill some corporate bureaucracy, needs to be a lean startup releasing often and building. The company is still focused on how to maintain an online community and partnerships were dominated by consensus process.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the history alive, preserve the people, and return to the autonomy that let the company succeed by being the best online photo community.

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

    Poorly run company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Proswork life balance is the best thing about the company, if you don't want a high level of accountability and want palace where you can pursue other jobs on the side this is the place for you!

    Consleadership is self serving, there is no designated career path for most employees. Worse, this is a company on decline. There is a clear bias towards certain individuals and departments.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great if you're smart and talented, but don't expect to go anywhere

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsThe benefits are good (work/life balance, insurance, etc.), and the projects are interesting and challenging. If there's something you'd like to work on or get some experience with, you can generally get your hands dirty. Relaxed office atmosphere with a relatively hands-off approach to employee management.

    ConsThe direction of the company is fuzzy and there is little or no room for career advancement. There's a lot of lip service that things will change, but little follow through.

    Smart and talented techie? This is the place in Denver for you.

    Techie (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsPhotobucket is a company with lots of smart, talented people. Most important, these people are given the autonomy to make decisions and do their job effectively. Communication is strong compared to a lot of other places I've worked.

    ConsPhotobucket is a fast-paced environment that values progress over activity, meaning anyone who is looking to punch a clock would not last very long. Vacation is limited to two weeks a year, but they are a little extra generous on paid holidays. On the flip side, the work-from-home policies are pretty liberal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore direct interaction between the California office and the Denver office would be beneficial to give the technical teams more insight into the product and company direction.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
