Director/ Sr. Director (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 4, 2017
Getty has an amazing library of content and very dedicated people producing that content. It was always an honor to represent that content. The sales teams are tight, and rely on each other for support., This created a very unique and positive micro-culture within the organization that I personally enjoyed most.
Getty Images is committed to be the best in their industry. I worked in a new program as an independent account sales manager from my home office for 6 1/2 years, The job ended with Getty Images giving our team a months notice and severance pay. I loved working for Getty, I worked my own hours and we had continuing education about our product as well as weekly team meeting to support and encourage all of the team.
great pay, world class product, support and monthly incentives.
Sr Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – September 20, 2017
During my 3 years at Getty I had 5 different managers in 2 different roles, and it was difficult to get any clear direction from all but one of my managers who sadly got re org'd away. Because of this, it was difficult to define any long term goals or roadmaps as we were in a constant state of onboarding new managers and bringing them up to speed.
Leadership turnover, lack of direction, lack of leadership
Product Owner (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – August 16, 2017
The people at Getty are amazing. It is a great culture and very accommodating to work life balance. The projects at Getty go fast and furious. Sometimes, direction will get changed in the middle of a project by leadership.
Independent Account Executive (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – June 14, 2017
I have had the privilege of working with/for Getty Images over the past few years. This has been hands down the best place I have worked. The management is extremely helpful and the team that I am on has been nothing but amazing. I would highly recommend anyone who is interested or given the opportunity to come on board. Hard work pays off, and at Getty Images, you will be given every chance to succeed. A+ company to work for.
comission, management, communication, team atmosphere, industry knowledge
Consultant/Project Manager (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 16, 2017
Wonderful people to work with, they walk you through the work challenges and co-operate at every level. I loved the office place and each month the photographers get to showcase their talent to all the employees. Very friendly and fun work atmosphere.
Unpredictable Comp Plan, Major Organizational Change
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 13, 2016
Company went through major reorg during this time last year. Management shifted to adapt but negative outcomes surfaced for employees Very little job security Most positions require very mundane work KPIs are KEY and all peroformance is tracked heavily Comp plans fluctuate and lack clarification Overall photography business is very challenged these days so cannot blame the corporate environment New CEO is fantastic...maybe there is hope!
flexible schedule in some positions, good medical benefits
unpredictable pay structure, challenges in sales role
National Account Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 19, 2016
The Company went through 5 different comp plans since I've been here for two years. Always trying to change things up to make sure that top performers aren't getting paid to much. It ends up back fires after 6 months and the lose the top sales people of other company's who have consistent payouts.
