    I have been working at Mom365 part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Hours are great. I start each day at 10am. I leave when all the babies have been photographed. Normally around 2 pm, sometimes earlier, sometimes later.
    - If the hospital is busy and in a good area, commission is relatively easy to make. I've never made minimum wage - I always make enough in commission that I don't make the fall back rate that is minimum wage.
    - Working in a hospital setting is nice. Hospital treats me like staff.
    - Some flexibility, you can request certain days off in advance if needed without being told no or made to feel bad. My hospital has multiple staff that work it, so we cover each other when needed.
    - Paid via direct deposit twice a month.
    - Benefits
    - I like that I work most of my hours while my kids are in school. I also work four days a week, on the four days that work best for me.

    Cons

    - Fussy babies are hard to photograph. You NEED to have patience for this job. Sometimes you'll have three rooms, and in all rooms mom is nursing babies - so you're left waiting a bit for when baby is ready. The babies control how these photo shoots go.
    - We're in hospitals 365 days a year - you might work holidays. They do offer holiday pay though and normally it's only a few hours out of the day for you to work. It doesn't personally bother me.

    Pros

    Good if you like babies but

    Cons

    bad if you actually want pay. I haven't actually even worked a shift.

    They told me there was a 3 week waiting period and I'd have to take all sorts of vaccinations and then a 2 week training period. Though they were paying, the pay was a joke. They were offering a "minimum wage" of $9... The minimum currently is $10.50-$11.00. As for the so called commision, they're offering you 20% of $150, seriously? I'd be doing all the work, they should at least do minimum wage + commision or 50% commision.

    Pros

    Independent working environment, commission-based wages. Plus, you get to play with babies and cameras!

    Cons

    Time-management can be an issue because you are forced to run on baby time! While the commission-based wages can be a huge plus, some days just aren't great sales days.

    Pros

    Working with babies is amazing.

    Cons

    You never know what your schedule will be. They call you in all the time on your off days. They nurses can be very hard to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to fix turnover and nurses relationships with the photographers. Plus fix the pay scale. These photographers work hard for little pay.

    Pros

    Creative fun job and very satisfying making beautiful memories for families that they will always have. You get to hold babies!

    Cons

    Sometimes babies will cry no matter what you try and that doesn't make for good pictures. Never knowing how much money you will make.

    Pros

    Love photographing newborns. Got to meet many nice people from the hospital.

    Cons

    Work overload with minimum compensation. Pricing for their photo packages increased a lot so costumers weren't excited to pay for them and you get paid based on commission. No true motivation from managment.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involve in motivation photographers and increase salary!
    Get newer equipment (the computers and camaras were really old and slow).

    I worked at Mom365 part-time

    Pros

    Taking pictures of babies, working with families in maternity and NICU.

    Cons

    If you don't get into a hospital that has families that buy, you will work your butt off, make concessions in schedule, get paid a lower hourly pay than higher paid hospitals and in the end, the company will eventually let you go for "performance issues" when they have trained someone to take your spot. This company does not value it's employees AT ALL. Many receive little or no training before being thrown into the job. They will lie about schedule and the way commission is paid to get you in. You get base pay OR commission dependent on sales per day. NOT BOTH. This is my year and 5 months experience with the Cleveland, OH group.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people and pay them what they are worth. Be respectful of employee's that go above and beyond and don't treat them like they don't matter. You earn your living OFF of the photographers. Stop changing policies and scheduling at the drop of a hat. Provide what your employee's need in order to do their job effectively, including camera's that work properly.

    Working with babies, wonderful families and amazing hospital staff

    LOW PAY..little commission. Horrible management.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your photographers!!! Pay a fair livable wage. Base salary plus commission would be a start.
