    I worked at Corbis full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Creative fun people, good benefits, great location and environment, good life/work balance. Leaner leadership tier leaves greater opportunities to impact from all levels.

    Cons

    Frequent change in leadership, direction, attrition and lay-offs. Trade-off of sub-par compensation for more growth opportunities and challenges. Leadership can range from senior and disconnected to junior and naive.

    Advice to Management

    Get a strong CIO, focus on revenue generating initiatives, stop wasiting time/effort/focus on side projects. Be honest with employees and truly address morale issues, not just white wash them.
