    Pros

    some great minded people with a true passion for photography. nice offices.

    Cons

    a corporate culture at it's worst: no risk taking, everyone is busy protecting their back, email obsessed, unhealthy competition between NY and Seattle office, constant layoffs, useless meetings, arrogance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking of yourself as a big profitable company and start thinking as a start up with little cash.

    There are many companies that do it well or maybe just 'ok'. Corbis is not one of them.

    Pros

    The location is good, if you like having a bail bondsman close by
    Compensation was fair, health benefits are good
    Non leadership types are genuine and fun to work with

    Cons

    Immature leadership team that lacks talent, the technology organization is a prime example. Lose the top IT leadership (dead weight with serious credibility issues).

    Rapidly losing market share; layoffs are still a recurring theme

    C levels do not have the vision, focus or discipline to get the job done. They sure think they are bright, confidence doesn't appear to be the problem.

    Attrition is really heating up and will continue to be an issue as the economy heals but the company continues to travel down the drain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR types and managers are obviously posting the 5 star reviews of the company, that is laughable. Start doing assessments of yourselves and the organization, make the necessary changes needed in order to move forward. Clean up your image by leading by example. You aren't doing it today and you are allowing poor decisions by junior leaders. Growing up is tough but so is unemployment.
