Pros

Work-life balance, excellent knowledgeable employees, good pay and benefits.
Digital Media is a cool and contemporary industry and subject matter is very interesting to work with and leverage technology for

Cons

Company touts egalitarian workplace values, and preaches employee retention measures then re-orgs almost annually, losing all credibility. The employees are dispirited and no longer trust management.
Corbis is always chasing the shiny object and never follows through on any concrete, innovative idea. They lack innovation and so they turn to cost cutting as their method for prosperity. It is sad, all those talented people in a company that cant lead then anywhere,

Advice to Management

Sell the company to someone that can run it. After 20 + years, Corbis is yet to be profitable.
Corbis needs results or new leadership.
Stop treating employees as costs to be eliminated before the last of your talent walks out the door

    Pros

    Good benefits include fitness and education reimbursement. Good medical benefits. Time off is flexible and if you get selected there are good management training programs.

    Cons

    Leadership is not inspirational at all. The business plan is constantly changing directions and staff can never feel very secure in their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with a plan. Be more open with your staff about the good and the bad things that are going on.
