    Pros

    The photo studio allows people to express their own individuality. Very flexible schedule. Paid holidays.

    Cons

    The turnover rate is insane. 25+ people have left or been let go in the past year. The drama rate is also very high. Management has their favorites and usually listens to their favorite employee’s gossip before they make any real decisions. People have been fired wrongfully for it several times.
    The harder workers are constantly passed over for promotions and are usually passed up for someone with much less experience and no work ethic and who don’t last more than a few months.
    Harder workers are also expected to pick up the slack of the less enthusiastic employees. The slackers slack? They get promoted- The workhorses who never complain? They get more work and told they aren’t experienced enough for a raise. The slackers don't meet a deadline? It's given to the teams who have already completed their deadlines.
    Management is never around- always in meetings.
     If one person goes, they do not replace that position. They divvy up the work load amongst everyone else causing strain on every team in the department.
    Unachievable goals and high workload. Horrible, dirty working conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Better hiring process, take better care of the hard workers and stay away from the drama. Be there for your employees. Take care of the hard workers. Follow through. Be fair.

    Pros

    There's a pond and plenty of grass if you can make it through the winter.

    Cons

    It's like stepping into a 1970s office -- from the decor to the management. Though it's an e-commerce site, it's like the internet doesn't exist. It's way too old school to be taken seriously in this decade.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up. Look to the future because your customers are dying.
