    I have been working at Shutterfly full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great people, fun environment, good pay

    Cons

    Shutterfly's busiest season begins in October and does not end until Christmas day. With so many mandatory overtime hours you will literally live at the place. It is difficult to create a healthy work:life balance. I worked in customer service, schedules changed consistently sometimes weekly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Match 401k

    Pros

    Creative is allowed to be pushed in unique directions

    Cons

    Channel alignment is impossible. Strategy is never aligned from the top and briefed in with clear direction. Channel owners trump GM's, Creatives and VP's. Top Heavy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen.

    I have been working at Shutterfly full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Generally very nice people to work with. Reasonable work life balance. There are a lot of different brands within the company to work on and memory/photo sharing is a pretty interesting product - not just another app or widget.

    Cons

    It is slow to change, very risk averse and/or tight fisted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to new ideas from employees. Don't be penny wise and pound foolish. Our customers love us, get more/new customers. Evolve the site more quickly or risk being outdated. Customers change so should we.
