Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Corbis full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great people. Product can be interesting. Can move upward if in right position and motivated.

Cons

Confusing messages from upper managment, or no messaging. Layoffs are frequent. Poor leadership. Negative messaging about industry and company from managers. "We're doomed" attitude from management, or they just leave suddenly.

Advice to Management

Figure out how to invest in the technology and back end sytems. Hire and motivate positive and talented leaders to steer the ship (rather than sink it.)

    I have been working at Corbis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    some great minded people with a true passion for photography. nice offices.

    Cons

    a corporate culture at it's worst: no risk taking, everyone is busy protecting their back, email obsessed, unhealthy competition between NY and Seattle office, constant layoffs, useless meetings, arrogance.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking of yourself as a big profitable company and start thinking as a start up with little cash.
