    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Corbis full-time

    Pros

    Not an 8 to five job. There is some flexibility in hours. The pay is not high but it's liveable. The people at this company make the job - they're excellent.

    Cons

    There are requirements for working every other Friday night. The size of the team determines how many Friday nights you work. Recent layoffs of long-term employees have destroyed the tribal knowledge base.

    Advice to Management

    Settle. Set one long-range plan and stay with it.
