    Pros

    Company has great benefits (medical, dental, vision, HSA contribution) including competitive monthly costs. Great morale activities for everyone including beer-30 as well as family friendly sponsored events. Amazing work/life balance - managers allow you have autonomy in your job.

    Cons

    Amazing office space but no my favorite location. Would love some better lunch spots in the area.

    I have been working at Getty Images full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In general, the people who work here are quite nice.

    Cons

    The company is so moving and doesn't value innovation. Teams aren't encouraged to collaborate.

    Advice to Management

    Decide on an actual direction for the company that will allow the company to weather the changing market. If not, Getty will become obsolete.

    Pros

    Caring co-workers, good management, allowing flexibility with schedules and excellent 'paid time off' package. Great talent within the company. The overall environment is welcoming and comfortable

    Cons

    Fearful of layoffs, and I thought I'd be OK, but I guess not.

    Pros

    Lots of money to be made. Everyone usually hits their year goal or exceeds. No matter how new you are.

    Cons

    None! Keep up the great work of being a leader in the market! Some work from home wouldn't be bad.

    Pros

    great creative team and cutting edge technology, management always encourages development and furthering your career, pay is on point with other similar companies

    Cons

    they need to align themselves better to make their photos more modern and relevant, they are seeming to be antiquated in their collection although the purchase of istock has made a big difference

    Advice to Management

    listen to employees and don't rest on your laurels, keep the content fresh and up to date with competitors collections

    I worked at Getty Images full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great and fascinating products and technology stack, and the nicest people you will ever work with. You get plenty of space to do your own thing.

    Cons

    The downside of "space to do your own thing" is that it's very easy to feel alone, isolated and lost. Very difficult to move up the ladder. Many senior leadership have been there a *long* time so there is a fair bit of myopia about limitations/problems. Management has good intentions to make things better but when I left (July 2017) there had not been much progress.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk of providing support and *really listening* (not just providing rote and empty rituals of listening).
