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

    Pros

    I've worked for several sales organizations in my career, but I finally found my ideal job at Getty Images. I recently took a new position within the company, but for the last two years I've been working as a Senior Account Executive on the Agency team. Management is very fair, and provides all the tools needed to excel at the role. The position has also afforded me opportunities to grow as a sales person and develop the skills necessary to move up within the company. I would recommend this position anyone with prior sales experience who wants to work for a cool company and make some money!!!

    Cons

    Agencies can be hard to work with, but with the right attitude and training, there are so many opportunities to hit quota and grow the book of business.
