Professional Photographers of America Reviews
Pros – Competently run office. Nice, friendly staff. They care about members.
Cons – This is a company that puts, "Resumes without salary history will not be considered," in its job ads. I should have known something was up when I saw that. That means they are not looking for the best people to serve the members, but workers they can cheat before they even come on board by leveraging personal information.
Advice to Senior Management – The board needs to put a leash on the CEO and stop sending such a negative message to the public about the organization. If you don't know what your jobs are worth, you shouldn't be running an association. If you do and are still demanding personal salary info, you're trying to screw potential employees.
“Good if you're desperate for 40 hours, pleasant office, and benefits. Don't bother if you have opinions and vision.”
Pros – Comfortable offices in downtown Atlanta. Frequent perks of fruit, outings to entertainment, extra day off. High level of customer service for members. Many dedicated/good employees in the ranks.
Cons – 30+% turnover in one year. Leadership has very limited project and people management knowledge and it shows throughout. Due to sense of paranoia at the top, presenting differing views or asking too many questions undermines trust. Performance reviews are stuck at "meets expectations" with no desire to have employees excel. Bonus and salary increase are equally distributed.
Advice to Senior Management – Take an honest assessment of excessive turnover and why morale is so low. Take better care of your high potentials and top performers or they will continue to go to your competitors. Take a hard look at core business competencies and drop those that are a drain. Stop the mixed messages of supposedly respecting your employees, yet maintaining such a level of distrust that you actively monitor communications.

Pros – The work is challenging and fast paced.
They try hard to keep employees happy with things like company outings, unannounced bonuses, and extra time off.
Cons – Chronic understaffing. Work load is such that employees constantly have to cut corners. No time is allowed for professional development. At times employees cannot take advantage of perks like extra time off due to workload.
Advice to Senior Management – Evaluate the staffing level and the workload. Pick important projects and let unprofitable ones go. Don't try to complete so many projects at once. Define your core business and stick to it.
