A puppy mill of photo editing
Senior (12th graders) Retouching Manager/ Trainer (Former Employee), Lake City, FLSeptember 13, 2014
Pros: a very youth oriented culture, it's a lot of fun to be involved in, some great take home skills for amazing photo edits
Cons: severely outdated computer hardware, broken systems in it, a very real and constant threat of loosing your job without fault or blame or even explanation, unrealistic expectations from management, cult-like church run business
With an incredible end product, Cady has incredible potential.
Cady was a room full of enthusiastic young people that were willing to do their jobs passionately and with a constant party like atmosphere brought on and held onto by the middle management. We learned a lot in a very short amount of time. If you like working with a deadline, this was a great job.

Sadly, Cady doesn't keep the bulk of it's staff on payroll during the year so each "season" has new employee's with no prior experience. They call it "seasonal", but even most of the senior staff has been there for years on end- with no benefits. Many of the employees are laid off with no notice, just a "quick meeting in the conference room" and they're out the door with no notice to the management or team leaders- just a dip in the payroll and staffing. Payment is 1/3 of the industry standard and NO job security.

Hired high schooler and expected them to act professional
photographer (Former Employee), AcworthSeptember 12, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
I thought I was walking into a professional gig. Boy was I wrong!! I walked in a studio with a bunch of teenie boppers who were too busy screwing around to do their job. I worked my butt off and then I was told I was working too slowly. The management there sucks. They are out for themselves and no one else. They pay you next to nothing but expect everything. If they do not change their ways they are going to get a bad rap by the customers who have to wait forever for their photographers.

Great Place to build a Career!!
Seniors Production Manager (Current Employee), Lake City, FLAugust 27, 2014
- A typical day at work is busy but productive during the heat of the season
- In my 3 years here I have gained a strong foundation of managerial skills that I can use anywhere.
- The hardest part of my job is the stress level, with the demand to get product to the customer it can be a lot to deal with. But with a seasonal company it only last for a few months of the year.
- This company is a great company. In my three years I have seen it bloom into an amazing place to work. I love what I do here, it allows me to lead a team, and to be creative while compensating me well.
- Great company culture.

Every day I get to wake up and go to work with some of the best people I know. We all work hard and sometimes during peak season the pace is hectic, but the work environment and culture of the company is very positive. It's a great team!

High paced workplace, having recently been opened.
Lead Photographer (Former Employee), Alpharetta, GAJune 3, 2014
Pros: team, equipment, pay rate
Cons: was not paid on time
Everyday was an exciting challenge. I learned alot about working with a team and tending to a customers needs. Winding down at theend of a shift or work day was difficult, having been so amped up. But, working with such passionate people made it worth wild.
