    Pros

    --Great product offering.
    --Talented and great people working here
    --Good work/life balance

    Cons

    --Senior leadership is MIA most of the time.
    --Zero communication from the top about anything. I haven't seen or heard from the CEO in months. Heads/VPs do nothing to communicate their teams' work or accomplishments.
    --Pay is not competitive
    --Annual layoffs (no exaggeration).

    Advice to Management

    The old ways of licensing are no longer sustainable. Stop trying to keep it alive. Slow adaptation has prevented you from competing in this business while other companies have surged ahead. Only some bold shifts in strategy will save this company.

    I worked at Corbis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exciting field - the quality of the product Corbis is selling is unmatched in the industry.

    Cons

    Company has been going through a lot of downsizing lately. Seems like the best people are being let go or are leaving on their own (abandoning a sinking ship???). Employees show a lot of paranoia and most are keeping their resumes up-to-date!

    Advice to Management

    What is the real cost savings when the best resources are not retained? From the employee point-of-view, my job would be on-the-line if I was highly paid or over 50. If this is NOT reality, it certainly seems to be so for the employees!
