      Pros

      Get to play with lots of exciting camera gear. Coworkers are usually nice and easy to get along with. If you’re knowledgeable and personable, the work won’t be too challenging.

      Cons

      Upper management is incompetent. Company is obsessed with kpi’s Over the years the commissions pay outs have been eroded. My guess is in order to help pay for the incompetent upper management.

      Pros

      - Casual setting - As long as the work is getting done on time you can pretty well do whatever you want

      Cons

      - Industry lacks stability (both photography and retail in general) - No room for growth - Don't ask for a raise unless you want to be laughed at by HR - They laid off a good chunk of corporate staff so there's no one to back you up if you want to take time off
