    I worked at Shutterfly full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Coworkers were more like family than friends. They hired great people for the most part.

    Cons

    Every year that I worked at Shutterfly was worse than the last. They are on a constant downhill slope as far as employee moral and benefits go. I couldn't wait to leave Shutterfly after many years without a single pay promotion. Absolutely absurd.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your employees and less on your wallet.

    I worked at Shutterfly full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work life Balance Great people Good free food

    Cons

    Most of the managers have no creativity and are so worried about "Playing Politics" and not focusing on work. Too much focus on making pretty power points when the website has tonnes of bugs.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize amazing talent you hire and don't let them leave. Attract fresh talent from outside.

    I worked at Shutterfly full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people, and a great overall market focus of creating products that capture memories for the world to re-experience that "one time" in the past that make your brain perk up a little bit and that smile about that "one time".

    Cons

    Going through a technology transition and a leadership transition. I believe that the new leadership will drive the company in the right direction and they will emerge stronger, but during times of change there will be uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on making the staff comfortable with the changes that are occurring, paint a larger picture of where the end state will be and draw out tactical lanes to the strategic end point to show the folks how their efforts and day to day contribute to the end state of the strategic vision.

    I have been working at Shutterfly full-time

    Pros

    Some great people who want to do better (but can't because they're being oppressed by process and senior management that doesn't trust the decision making capabilities of their employees). A lot of parking. Close to an estuary for nice walks when you need to vent and get out of the office. Good for taking phone screens from recruiters. Electric car charging stations. Herman Miller chairs.

    Cons

    Product organization has become a spineless group who serve at the mercy of the GMs. GMs are so involved in the day-to-day that business strategy becomes watered down to copying what the next closest competitor is doing. In a GM versus PM cage match, GM wins every time. PM org is basically beat down and largely has no energy left to care. Innovation does not mean the same as it does to the rest of Silicon... Valley. At Shutterfly, innovation equates to "copy what they are doing" with a different page layout. So many people involved in decision making that what could be a great idea ends up being a mediocre middle ground because the teams are trying to satisfy everyone's feedback and opinions. Though many will say it is a collaborative environment, there is an undercurrent of blame that ripples through the organization. Something goes wrong and there's a witch hunt that is positioned as a way to help us all do better. Specialties is the closest place to get out for lunch. Meetings all day.

    Advice to Management

    Find another way to solicit feedback from employees. Employee engagement survey masks the truth because many feel as though it is not truly anonymous so data is inflated. Share life's joy with your employees! And, by "share life's joy", I mean trust them more.
