Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Account Executive

I have been working at Getty Images full-time for more than a year

Pros

I've worked for several sales organizations in my career, but I finally found my ideal job at Getty Images. I recently took a new position within the company, but for the last two years I've been... working as a Senior Account Executive on the Agency team. Management is very fair, and provides all the tools needed to excel at the role. The position has also afforded me opportunities to grow as a sales person and develop the skills necessary to move up within the company. I would recommend this position anyone with prior sales experience who wants to work for a cool company and make some money!!!

Cons

Agencies can be hard to work with, but with the right attitude and training, there are so many opportunities to hit quota and grow the book of business.

Current Freelancer - Composer

I have been working at Shutterstock for more than a year

Pros

Awesome artist reps and support

Cons

Freelance so its not as regular as full time job

Advice to Management

Bonus would be great for regular consistent contributors
