    I have been working at Beach Camera full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company has been around for a long time and most employees have been here many years. The company tries to recognize talent and offer to cultivate it. Management has a pretty open door policy and they generally trust and expect you to be doing a good job

    Cons

    Hours seem a little long so it would be better to start earlier and get out earlier.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees attainable goals with clearer roadmaps and guidance to achieving them.
    Get more technology/ IT resources.
    Do more trainings.

    I worked at Beach Camera full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay. Somewhat good hours. Co workers are friendly most of the time. This is pretty much the only pros about this company

    Cons

    Horrible company. Very dishonest to their customers. Sells out of stock items to customers. Sells broken items to customers. Wants their employers to lie to customers about their items to protect the company. There is never a manager available to help customers. Sells used and damaged items to customers saying its a new product.

    Pros

    Nice people to work with, although there is a lot of withholding of information, so learning how things operate is extremely difficult.

    Cons

    Odd hours of operation. Working until 7:00 pm 4 nights a week is unacceptable. Almost no paid time off. 2 sick days per year?

    Advice to Management

    I don't see things changing in a meaningful way in the near future. The culture is skewed to accommodate the background of the majority of the employees. Outsiders will always be outsiders.

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is that Monday through Thursday you work 10am to 7pm and Friday you work 10 am to 3pm. During the winters on Fridays you work 10 am to 2pm.

    Cons

    To much politics goes on here. No Human Resource department. No efficient way to communicate without getting in trouble. If that doesn't happen then it's because you suggested an idea and had stolen from you and therefore you don't get credit for it. Way to many excuses at this place. They kill any innovative ideas.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to do a corporate restructure of the whole company and make all employees re-interview for their position. Hire more developers as well since this is an e-commerce website.

    Pros

    I have been working at beach camera for 14 years. Although not perfect The owners and management really try very hard to make their employees and customers happy. They are good people who do not want anybody to have a hard time. I am shocked to read some of these negative reviews.

    Cons

    The management could try and offer more benefits. however, they do their best to offer what they can.

    Advice to Management

    offer helath benefits and more vacation days
