      Corporate Polotics a Nightmare

      24 Aug 2020 - Senior Sales Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval

      Pros

      You get to learn a lot about photography and you get to see some really cool moments. My fav part was watching kids come in as babies and taking pictures of them and their family as they got older. Pay was also good for management.

      Cons

      They would over book the photographers like crazy and we would have to rush sessions to keep up and as we all know kids are unpredictable. Also, the manager would make the assistant managers do everything but take credit for it. It was obvious the the DM had a crush on the manager too so we wernt allowed to say anything about it with out it coming down on us.

      Pros

      Plenty of work during holidays. Rewarding work with some great families.

      Cons

      High turnover leads to inconsistent and at times toxic studio management. Upper management turns a blind eye as long as they are profiting.
