    Pros

    The people and culture are great. The working environment has minimum anxiety yet there are enough interesting problems to wok on.

    Cons

    The overall pay is ok, but would be able to make more almost anywhere else. The work life balance makes up for it, for the most part.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your engineers like you want to keep them.

    Pros

    Challenging work in a comfortable environment

    Cons

    constantly changing the org chart, management tools, methods, ideologies, and processes. never willing to commit money for management tools, talk of work-life balance is just talk. They never offered actual training, but held it as a carrot.

    Advice to Management

    Quit trying to run the Operations Team like it is a Development Team.

    Pros

    The incentive package was great! Decent base salary, and the commission upon exceeding goals were even better.

    Cons

    Working hard, and smart is important to be successful in any sales role. At Getty Images you have to do that, and understand office politics. If management likes you and you work hard, you will make good money for a long time. They will help you to exceed you your goals each month, and each quarter.

    Advice to Management

    No advice.
