    Pros

    Competitive pay, mileage reimbursements, creative work environment, incentive-based grading on photographs, room too grow within company, and an expandable pay rate (yearly increases in hourly rate based on performance)

    Organization is a must because there are a lot of responsibilities including calling centers to confirm details, strong skills with computers are usually required, uploading center's photographs daily, very fast-paced on picture day, sometimes the teachers can be extremely rude or even condescending.

    Short Staffed and Unsupportive Teams

    Pros

    Working with the kiddos is so much fun. You get paid for mileage - not nearly enough to make it worth it though.

    Cons

    No benefits. Very very very minimal training for people who are hired with no experience. So you are left floundering to figure it out yourself. Tech issues all the time. A lot of schools don’t have service for some reason so even if you need help you can’t call anyone to get help. Management team was so unsupportive and made me feel like a burden and stupid for asking questions. Not great pay. It says full-time but you never get full-time hours. You are either working 20 hours a week or 80 there is no inbetween.

    Pros

    Can be a fun environment to work in. Had a decent retirement program.

    Cons

    Very unorganized with little to no daily management. No communication between office employees and photographers. I worked there for years without a direct manager. When they finally hired one the individual was unqualified, got overwhelmed and left after a short period.

    Pros

    Good Benefits - Pay can be good in Corporate - Nice people

    Cons

    Total lack of direction - managment is constantly changing and has little vision of how to plan for the future. Instead of solving a problems they just add more layers and make things more complicated. The future is not good for ShutterFly and especially LifeTouch.
