So much promise with so little result
Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 5, 2018
Shutterstock is basically a company designed to funnel money to about 12 people. The bottom levels are nice enough. Ping Pong tables and paid lunches to make people feel welcome, but yearly layoffs, poor pay, and no real communication between branches make this a lumbering beast of a company that is only secure due to lack of real competition. Half of any given shift is spent fixing problems that started in another department, and there is a continual change of rulesets meant to keep people from looking too deeply at what's actually going on.
If Shutterstock shrunk their manager pool, and worked on internal communication, there would be promise here. Until that time, it's a wonderfully disguised pool of toxicity.
Free lunches, Nice Workspace
No Job Security. Treats interns/temps/contractors like lesser people. Too many chefs in the kitchen.
