Excellent, creative very easy
Professional photographer - freelancer (Current Employee), New York, NYApril 11, 2014
Pros: no need, i am looking for a job to feed my famili
Cons: no problems, shutter is the best company i ever work for !
I am working from my home, every day from 9 a.m. until I drop from my chair, 5 p.m. or 6 even up to 10 p.m. in the evening.

I miss my old job, to work as an engineer, to invent new things, to solve some real problems and to help production to go faster and easy.

I learned to be more precision and to look world from the other side.

Management is excellent – more... and very accurate, fair and very serviceable.

My co-workers are all artists and they helped me to get in this job very easy and to make real good results.

The hardest part of the job is that I am always in my home, closed in my room, because the job require a lot of processing material that should be prepared for upload.

The most enjoyable part of the job is creativity and freedom in ideas and no one said STOP and go home to rest your self. – less

Not the best place to have a career
Account Executive (Former Employee), New York, NYJanuary 27, 2014
Pros: free beverages, breakfast, pizza friday
Cons: bad tempered managers, managers have unproffesional interpersonal communication and sometimes no communication at all
I will start by saying that I am writing this review to help others, I am fortunate enough to have a good amount of savings going into this role but for those that aren’t prepared to take a financial hit beware and stay away. I am a Sales Professional who has been in industry for 10 years.

This job is risky, some who have weathered the storm have seen – more... success but at the cost of monotony, and never knowing what will happen the next day.

Turnover is such an issue, Sales Directors can’t manage the business because more than half of their time is dedicated to interviews.

Most are super motivated to start but that quickly turns around as you get an understanding of the business. This is what you will face in a role as an Account Executive, you will work with a team where everyone hates what they do because the job is robotic, and unfruitful. Prospecting for good leads is impossible, everything that is worth your time is taken, people are fighting each other for prospects, just a sad and toxic environment.

Leaders don’t go through a formal training process, most companies spend 6+ months to breed leaders by giving them special projects and training to ensure that they are ready, at Shutterstock Sales Directors are the survivors those that made it past a year or two. They are sent to training for a week and then tasked to lead a team completely unprepared.

The communication is really bad at the Customer service/sales department. Management do not prioritize to update the team about changes that are being made to website and products. Most of the time,I would hear the updates from customers and not from management.

If you choose to work for them as an Account Executive, I would advise you to keep track of your sales, bonuses, over time pay etc. They have a tendency to forget some payments. They also tend to forget to add your paid days off to your calender. Make sure you make a note of all of that. – less

Content Team Temporary Support
Image Contributor Support (Temporary) (Current Employee), New York, NYJuly 21, 2013
Pros: free food, nice office space and location, generally great colleagues.
Cons: work can be tedious in some departments, especially temp jobs.
Great work environment, but jobs seem to be tedious in some departments. If you are a photographer or into the tech side, this would be an incredible company to work for.
