Clifton Photographic Company Employee Review

Lovely people, not so lovely job

You meet absolute friends for life at CPC, people that you know you never want to lose touch with. But that’s about all that is good about the place. Management and the directors don’t care about their teams or their employees, only care about the targets and money. You feel like you are scamming your clients constantly, as a lot of the practices aren’t really ethical, and having to explain terms and conditions that you personally don’t agree with to potential customers is really mentally draining. You get absolutely dragged if you don’t hit your targets, which is fair enough, but during a pandemic there is no understanding that these are going to be hard to hit, and it’s very much a lot of pressure from higher up day in day out. A lot of pressure for minimum wage..

Pros

Generally great people and culture

Cons

Poor management Money oriented directors Feels like a scam

A target driven yet creative and friendly environment

A low turnover of staff is usually indicative of a good working environment, and this is certainly true here. A diverse workplace which has elements of production, creativity, sales and administration. There is a very friendly and helpful management team from the top down, who are always on hand to advance your skill set.

Good place to work

Sometimes when sales are down it can be difficult. Other than that generally speaking management are pretty fair, it's a fun place to work and meet new people.

Great Team! Lovely Company and Decent Rewards.

Clifton Photographic is a great company for a family like environment with work that will keep you busy but that is enjoyable and offers the potential to be very financially rewarding. There are various departments from sales and marketing to the creatives such as Make Up Artists and of course the Photographers, and the company will always help to play you to your strengths. As a freelancer, work is flexible around other work and family commitments however does mean that work isn’t guaranteed (which is the nature of freelance work in general). However, any new openings in the company will always consider existing team members first. Highly recommend.

Pros

Uncapped Bonus/Commission, Flexible, Rewarding, Great Social Aspect (lots of team building events), Enjoyable.

Cons

Work is dependant on what’s available so not guaranteed for freelancers.
