I worked at Magenta Studio Photo part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Fun, young co-workers and a good environment if you are learning the basics or just trying to pay your pay through school.

Cons

Management was too young and too inexperienced!

Advice to Management

Give your photographers more freedom. You try to be at the forefront of creativity when it comes to family photos but you limit anyone attempting to actually be original.

Sales people are not photographers and photographers are not necessarily sales people. Commission should be distributed differently.

    I worked at Magenta Studio Photo part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rewarding work
    Fun and outgoing environment
    Team orientated
    Great for students

    Cons

    Management would rather throw a write up at your rather than help
    Lossing good quality staff fast
    High expectations with retail pay
    Now hiring people to be photographers that have no experience
    High costs for a retail environment
    No job security
    No room for growth
    Management gossips openly to staff members
    Impossible to have a social life as you get the schedule for the next day 8pm the day before

    Advice to Management

    You vocalize how replaceable everyone is and you're losing incredibly talented and dedicated staff because you refuse to pay them for the workload you supply them. You need to realize the quality of staff that's with you and learn to accommodate and appreciate the face of your company.
