    Pros

    It's very difficult to think of any pros, other than working at Photo-Me gives you a very good insight into poor management practices.

    Cons

    Total lack of respect shown to staff by certain managers. No proper direction with regards to how the company should be moving forward.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management? The good ones (and there are a few), get out while you can. The rest of them, well they should be ashamed to call themselves managers.

    I have been working at Photo-Me International full-time

    Pros

    no advantage. Only useful to learn how to resist to the pressure of the french 70' management style.

    Cons

    No team spirit - Silo approach - Terror management - No vision except the short term cash flow top management interest - High senior management turn over - No respect of the terms of labor contract - Personel harassement, etc

    I have been working at Photo-Me International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I really can't think of any pros other than that you can go home at the end of the day and look for other jobs.

    Cons

    A sad fear driven working culture and environment where regional managers and senior management try to boost efficiency by driving staff down and demoralising them. There is no team work and upgrades / projects are a last minute thought which are expected to be finalised on top of ludicrous work loads. Managers have a bizarre obsession with dust, There is no advancement opportunities, no paid overtime and very sly , two faced bonus schemes that only benefit management after promising field staff. It's a cash cow company in a dying industry. The biometric market will probably cripple PMI when the day comes.

    Advice to Management

    My advise would be to replace the senior management. Listen to the people at the bottom and actually pay attention to them. They are the ambassadors to the company and the backbone of the business.
