A company in constant upheaval.

Sales (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA (US)

I worked at Corbis

ProsIntelligent 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

The employees are dispirited and no longer… Advice to Senior Management: Sell the company to someone that can run it. After 20 + years, Corbis is yet to be profitable. Corbis needs… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
