    Pros

    Laid back and super diverse

    Cons

    Managers don’t know what they are doing. Promote the ones who don’t work and the hard workers get left in the dust.

    Advice to Management

    You guys really need to see who you guys have as leads and managers. A drug test policy would be super helpful considering more than half the company does drugs

    Pros

    Having Renee Lindsey as a lead. Being able to work with the team I'm sorry if and when the opportunity arises, being able to learn & support other departments.

    Cons

    Shutterfly in awhole doesn't get the respect it truly deserves.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to learn & communicate from/with each other. Remember the rest of us employees are watching, LOL!

    I have been working at Shutterfly full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Benefits Day - 1 -Decent pay -Supportive management team -Transparent leaders -Paid breaks

    Cons

    -Short breaks -Little room for advancement -Poor job training -Unpredictable hours during busy season -Frequent process changes that make job more complicated and difficult -Hypocritical leads -High percentage of low quality temp employees -Can't leave building during shift -Cliquey culture -Work/Life balance is non-existent from November-January -Poor communication

    Advice to Management

    -Bring in more full time employees that actually care about their job, the temps there get away with a huge amount of incompetence. -Promote employees that are loved by their coworkers, not despised. -Offer off-shift training in new areas. -Offer longer unpaid breaks at employees discretion.

    Pros

    -tons of free swag, too much to even use (1+ free of almost every item every 6 months, plus high employee discounts ) -good break room: atm, vending, lots of seating, and microwaves/coffee makers

    Cons

    - short sighted: too many temps, refuse to direct hire 90% of the time -work you like a dog: legally minimum breaks, no water or bathroom breaks outside of those (like high school but worse) - poor management practices: when asked what is needed to complete tasks, they ignore your answer despite not knowing how your machine even works -No accountability : blames temp agency for being short staffed all the time,... doesn't even know when or why people are getting fired

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES and then write what they say down. All of them, temps are people too. Less meetings, at some point youre just wasting time

    I have been working at Shutterfly full-time

    Pros

    Employees are super friendly & helpful. Independent positions - you have freedom to do your job without being micro managed. Managers & supervisors all seem really nice. They help their employees grow & recruit from within. The hours are really nice - (4) 10hr days, 3 days off - with lots of overtime available during their busy season. Good work/life balance. Cheap snacks & meals along with unlimited free... soda! Great employee discounts & perks! Better medical & dental coverage than my last job. 'The grass isn't always greener on the other side!' Atleast in my case, Shutterfly was!

    Cons

    Extremely busy quarter 4 season, with mandatory overtime. Gotta be productive & fast while on your feet 8+ hrs on your feet. Isn't a big deal for me.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really. Just keep up the good leadership & continue to listen to employees!

    Pros

    Really nice coworkers and if you're hired on you get a lot of free stuff. It starts off really good and you feel like you found the best place in the world to work. You find out very quickly that you are wrong.

    Cons

    Management doesn't have a clue how to manage a team. They are downright rude to their employees and there is no warning when hours will change. One week you might work 40 hours, the next 30 hour or maybe even 50-60 hours. Who knows? If you're a temp you don't get treated like a person at all. You're just a machine. Management won't even talk to you. Some people have been temps for two years and it looks like... they are never going to get hired on but they sure do make them hold on to the hope that it might happen soon. No benefits or raises for temps either. They treat their good people like trash. So many people have left because management has just been awful to them. And you can't move up unless you make Shutterfly your life. If you won't spend every possible second drinking the Shutterfly kool-aid then you have no hope of advancement. Zero to no training. Shutterfly's idea of training is showing you in 15 minutes how something works and saying okay you're an expert at it now. Mandatory time off. Basically after any major holiday you get an extra day off which would seem good but you don't get paid for it. As a temp you don't get paid for holidays and you don't get paid for the mandatory time off so you have to push yourself all week to work overtime to make up the hours lost.

    Advice to Management

    Do you ever just take a good long look at yourself in the mirror and think wow I have completely lost track of what it means to be a human? These are people, not machines. They are people willing to work but you work them way too hard and treat them like they are nothing. Wake up. You have lost good people and everyone is talking about leaving. To quote another current employee "they're dropping like flies around... here." I'll be leaving before Q4 for sure.
