    Pros

    Working for a well known Internet commodity has a lot of value. The company itself does, in fact, create a very nice product and one to be proud of. Most of the teams have a core of good people.

    Cons

    The senior management at Shutterfly is completely incompetent. In particular the management on the technology side is woefully inadequate at guiding the team from either a managerial or technical point of view. Furthermore, the pay is ridiculously low in comparison to other similar companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to your employees and lay off of the people that know what they're doing.
    Also, this isn't 1996, it's time to pay people market value.

    Pros

    Great product, some great people, good perks like free photobooks. Not much work pressure because there is not much to work for.

    Cons

    Bad HR policy like juniors are hired at higher salary than existing employees, so we have a bunch of new hires pulling higher salary than their supervisors. Management has no respect for your ability and contribution. The technology side is the worst offender. The management team of technolofy side is filled with industry rejects, social rejects and acad failures - completely incompetent. But you will grow fast if you watch soap operas,movies and play video games.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You do not have to hire all your friends to Shutterfly. If other companies rejected them they must be lacking something. Do not always go by style, look for substance will ya?
