I worked at Photo-Me International full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

You really don't want to work here. There isn't one Pro I could think of.

Cons

Very poor management, very French concentric view of the world. Zero opportunity for advancement, no project management. They've increased profits for the owner by cutting back people way past “the bone”. Internal systems are stuck in the 1970's, company culture is 1970's. Suits and executive washroom style culture, management silo's. Passport photo's are the only cash cow, and when EU regulations require biometrics company will be crippled.

Advice to Management

Replace everyone who has been with the company more than 7 years.

    Pros

    It's very difficult to think of any pros, other than working at Photo-Me gives you a very good insight into poor management practices.

    Cons

    Total lack of respect shown to staff by certain managers. No proper direction with regards to how the company should be moving forward.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management? The good ones (and there are a few), get out while you can. The rest of them, well they should be ashamed to call themselves managers.
