I worked at Lifetouch full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Work in the field with some very amazing people at the schools. If you are a strong self motivated individual it is a terrific opportunity.

Cons

Territory offices are EXTREMELY inconsistent. Old Lifetouch means male dominated, alcoholic drinking behavior, inconsistent management. condescending treatment, unclear money practices when it comes to commissions. So many cons it is really sad.
Corporately - appalling that these things are continually brought to HR's attention but continually go ignored. They have a corporate responsibility to demand better and to reprimand poor, unethical, and discriminatory behavior. They choose not to.

Advice to Management

Listen to the reports that come to you and act on them. Look at turnover, it doesn't lie. Where there is tremendous turnover, you have a problem. Get rid of Territory Managers that damage the company.

    I have been working at Lifetouch part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    i found no pros sorry

    Cons

    did not follow threw with promise of gas card, training manual, or equipment. Was trained by other employees that didnt have time to train because of fear of not making their bonus points. Managment was never there to talk to and did not follow threw when they said something. I had to call them for jobs they never called me. Did not recieve my first check as promised, which another girl there 4 weeks didnt recieve any either. The other photographer commented at a miliatary base that we were at that these kids (age newborn to 4) should be beat. Because they were scared when they came in. Nice huh??? And this was in a recorded military room, can you imagine what was said when uncle sam wasnt listening!!!! to say the least im done as a lifetouch employee.

    Advice to Management

    get a clue!!!! get new managment!!! and learn how to run a real company!!!!

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

    Pros

    Being Employee Owned, Lifetouch National School Studios treats its employees well and has excellent benefits and opportunity for career development. The Employee Stock Ownership Program keeps all employees motivated to insure the company does well. There are hundreds of people that work for Lifetouch for greater than 15 years due to the great environment and substantial retirement benefits.

    Cons

    Lifetouch is a large corporation, but functions in many ways as a small company. This can make the coordination of work difficult.

    Advice to Management

    The company would benefit from standardization of process and the adoption of modern process on all levels.
