    Pros

    I liked to like with the kids, and the photographer were very good

    Cons

    sometimes I had to drive more that 30 minutes


  2. When corporate doesn't have their act together, the disorganization trickles down to the franchises.

    Pros

    The franchise I worked for had a lot of great people there. My boss gave me opportunity to move into other aspects of the business, allowing for me to gain a wider range of experience.

    Cons

    The turnover was very high. In the 2 years I worked there as a photographer they went through 4 office managers. The work environment should not be that stressful, but constantly having new people who are in training bred problems.

    Advice to Management

    Better training. More office help.

    Pros

    Great soul food nearby on lunch.

    Cons

    Combined staff IQ still below 70.

    Advice to Management

    Do something other than have meetings about meetings. Walk a talk or get out of your staff's way so they can work in relative efficiency.

    Pros

    Could be a great opportunity to build a self-owned business. Possibility of setting your own hours and carrying as much of a work load as you want, but a lot of pressure to be completely full time.

    Cons

    Extremely poor customer service, poor leadership, and a total lack of accountability to their franchisees. Work yourself to death with next to nothing to show for it.

    Advice to Management

    No advice - fire 'em all! Don't try to teach a pig to sing - it wastes your time and annoys the pig. Stubbornness, a refusal to admit mistakes, and ignoring clients' needs is a sure way to lose. Shame to drag what was once a good company into disgrace.

    Pros

    True colors shine bright after 31 years of cluelessness and karma prevails every time. The employees that make it all happen are treated like 2nd class citizens.

    Cons

    Sad that they don't have a clue after 3 decades. They just chose not to advance their technology. TSS is left in the dust.

    Advice to Management

    Run for the hills.

    Pros

    the friends made while working there have turned out to be some of the hardest working, most valuable, and loyal people in my life still to this day

    Cons

    there was no control with the quality, in anyway. The senior management HAS NO CLUE truly what they are doing. They cut your hours on short notice and never paid for the PTO that you earned. Instead of hiring more people the work was spread out to the already over worked and under paid. NEVER got the raise they said you would when/if you happen to be "promoted". Was told that you had to prove you could do the job first.... THEN WHY DID YOU OFFER IT TO ME??!! and since when to you hire someone with no pay and decide whether or not to pay them; NEVER! Give us the money and if doesn't work out then change the deal! Just all around disappointed...

    Advice to Management

    don't let someone who knows CRAP about photography run a photography company, you don't know quality if it slapped you in the face.

    Pros

    The people there are wonderful.

    Cons

    They have no concept of the word "Quality". They cut corners, they lack the ability to run a company and provide a good product. They have a "fly by the seat of our pants" philosophy to running their company. They place unrealistic expectations on their employees and undervalue them (everyone is expendable,constant layoffs and cut hours). They lack communication, constantly in between HR people. I have learned how to NOT run a business while working here. I would not recommend this job to my worst enemy. STAY AWAY!

    Advice to Management

    Have your current CEO leave the company. This company may stand a chance and rise again if you find a more competent person to run it.

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly and understanding.

    Cons

    Management needs to take their IT department more seriously on IT hardware upgardes and fixing bugs.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep support issues from bubbling to IT urgent problems so soon.
