    Pros

    Fun workplace. Always something new. Everyday a new challenge. You'll meet lots of new people and plenty of fun working with the kids.

    Cons

    I can't really think of many. Pay could be better, much better but other than that none really. As long as you like kids

    I have been working at Mom365 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Photographing newborns and meeting new families

    Cons

    The pay is absolutely horrendous. This company is definitely lacking money and will do anything to get more and more income without caring for their employees or moms that we photograph for. District managers get paid 15 an hour and do absolutely nothing besides send emails and sometimes go to meetings. They’re suppose to cover hospitals when short staffed but they don’t. You never have a day off because they’re consistently texting you asking you to come work for people. Even if the hospital is an hour away they will still make you feel bad for not wanting to go. They tell you to come in while sick even though it’s a huge health hazard. You can’t request off a day, you work every holiday and zero vacation time. You have to find coverage and if you can’t it’s marked against you. The whole company is a scam, failing and won’t be around much longer. They also offer hundreds of dollars for you to recruit people and them to actually stay, because everyone quits so you end up never getting money for it. They don’t care if baby is under lights, just circumsized or moms not feeling well you have to barge in the room and get them to say yes to the photo session. And if they say no you have to keep pushing or you will get in trouble.

    Advice to Management

    It’s 2017 everyone already has newborn photographers. The package prices are unreasonable, over priced and laughable. You prey on vulnerable moms with manipulation and a mentality of “you don’t love your kid if you don’t get these photos” consider a new career?

    I worked at Mom365 full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Photographing beautiful newborn babies and hiring and training photographers as well as running background checks and obtaining healthscreens to enable them to work in hospitals. Working with Hospital Directors to contract services for their hospitals.

    Cons

    Keeping coverage in 20 plus hospitals 365 days a year......if photographer is not available for some reason, DM must cover the hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay plan for the photographers to help improve retention.

    Pros

    You get to take photos of babies!

    Cons

    If you call in sick, they'll try and convince you to still come in DESPITE the fact that it's not good for you and jeopardizes the safety of the infants you'll be handling. Your days off aren't really days off. They text or call you to come in pretty much every day. If the family pays in cash, you have to go get a money order and you are not compensated for time/travel it takes to get that done. You're basically running errands for them while not on the clock.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better! Stop putting $$ before the safety of the babies! Find another profession!

    Pros

    Photographing newborns always special.

    Cons

    Horrible pay. When you show up for your shift and there are no babies to photo you get paid nothing. Pressure by mgt. to push for sale. Working with nurses and Drs. , not usually supportive. Rush to get all mom's/ babies photographed brie discharge.

    Advice to Management

    Guarantee pay for showing up, base wage PLUS commission. Photographers would stay longer and be happier about the product.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule
    Photograph babies
    Easy job
    Paid training
    Work mostly alone at hospital, not much coworkers to interact with
    Get additional training as time goes

    Cons

    LOW LOW pay if you don't sale you don't get paid good. 20% commission and minimum fall back pay, ridiculous.
    Put in at least 40 hrs biweekly and get paid $180!!!!! STAY AWAY from this company!!

    Advice to Management

    We put in A LOT of energy into this and get paid NOTHING.
