I worked at Corbis

Pros

Intelligent colleagues, great benefits packages, beautiful and relevant photography, the existence of numerous offices outside the United States gives relevant global perspective on stock photography usage trends.

Cons

Corporate direction often clashed with customers' needs, major layoffs 1-2 times every year, inconsistent rewards for job performance, stagnant career paths.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide consistent recognition and rewards for annual job performance, listen to the needs of editorial clients (not just advertising/commercial clients), provide opportunities for colleagues to learn other jobs in the company, provide mentoring at all levels.

    I have been working at Corbis

    Pros

    Good benefits include fitness and education reimbursement. Good medical benefits. Time off is flexible and if you get selected there are good management training programs.

    Cons

    Leadership is not inspirational at all. The business plan is constantly changing directions and staff can never feel very secure in their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with a plan. Be more open with your staff about the good and the bad things that are going on.
