    This company lies to their business'. Teddy Bear does not even have photographers to cover area promised to client. I dont know who David Riley is but I don't think he is the CEO.

    I worked at Teddy Bear Portraits full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Worked with very nice people

    Cons

    I didn’t enjoy the job. I would rather have been the photographer than a part of the sales team. Working with the public can alway be a challenge and it was no different at Teddy Bear Portraits.

    I have been working at Teddy Bear Portraits full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have been working for TBP for about a year now. I love that this place is family-oriented and really cares about its employees. I have an amazing rapport with the people I work with, not only in my department, but also in the rest of the company, field included. There is a sense of fellowship and community that the company inspires. I am glad I am a part of the Teddy Bear family. If something goes wrong, it is a team effort to make sure there is resolve. We all work together to make sure we are the greatest photography company in the nation!

    Cons

    I don't really have any complaints.

    Pros

    Teddy bear portraits has been a good company to work for. They provided me with an excellent trainer to get me started with the company. As well as all the gear I needed to do the job. The support from the company has been great, they are easy to get a hold of and available to help if need be.

    Cons

    Long work days. And all the gear gets heavy!

    I'm so glad you are enjoy your position and that you feel supported in your role. Teddy Bear Portraits has a very special training program designed to give all new Photographers the tools they need to succeed. I wish there was a solution for the long hours and the heavy equipment but our support system is second to none.

    I worked at Teddy Bear Portraits full-time

    Pros

    The company was growing when I started there and continued to grow when I left. I worked in the Recruiting Department out of Dallas. I communicated daily with employees in the home office (Tennessee) and out in the field. Over time I've built close relationships with each and every one of them and they are such a great group of people to work with. Along with the positive, upbeat work environment and competitive salary, management was so understanding and more than flexible when it came to my schedule and availability. We even had the pleasure of working from home. Everyone was so committed to living by the company's core values and the employees were so highly valued. Even though I am no longer a part of it, I am excited to see how the company will continue to grow!

    Cons

    I never had any cons. Nothing but great things to say about Nationwide Studios/Teddy Bear Portraits.

    Finally, I can say " I love my JOB!! I was recently hired st Teddy Bear Portraits home office. Since my first interview I've been in love.

And since my first day, my peers having been very welcoming and helpful. I'm so excited to finally work in an environment where everybody loves what they do and how they do it for!!

    Cons

    The location is a ways for my house. So the fight with traffic can be a bit much when leaving for the day.

    Pros

    Nationwide Studios/Teddy Bear Portraits is a whole new company with new ownership. All the dust has settled and the company is now running smoothly. The new owners are committed to being technology leaders, employee focused and having the best customer service around. This company is taking over the school and early learning center picture day industry.

    Cons

    This company is growing and doing so many remarkable things. It is a shame that the new ownership inherited the old company's reviews.
