    I have been working at Snapfish as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Snapfish is a casual environment.
    -People here are all very smart, sharp, and cool. Easy to get along with and collaborate with.
    -Most of the people here care about the business and want Snapfish to get better (Not just a paycheck).
    -Flexibility on what you want to accomplish. There are avenues to take to get your idea in front of the right people.
    -Startup mentality and trying to grow internal employee satisfaction.
    -Potential to be #1 and be stellar

    Cons

    -Overarching bureaucracy from HP that make almost everything, that should be simple, more difficult to do. Mainly because HP is such a big corporation and has dealt with many negatives and thus wrote rules for them and thus has a process but not all rules can or should be applied to all subsidiaries and groups.
    -You can get your ideas in front of the right people but sometimes it might not cause a change. Sometimes the communication level is very low between management and employees. It sometimes even feels like they don't believe we know what we're talking about, even if we're in the front lines.
    -We have the capacity to move fast like a startup but are bogged down by rules and regulations from HP.
    -Not many 'how-to' processes were recorded since the acquisition by HP and so sometimes questions have a hard time finding answers.
    -Feels like we're not prioritizing enough and so juggling too many projects labeled 'top priority'.
    -A bit silo'd but a lot is being done to try to integrate. Still there are always the kids who think they are too cool for school and will not even try.
    -The word 'No' is so much more prevalent than 'Yes'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get one thing done, then start working on the other. We don't quite care about the long list of projects you're taking on, we just care about the list of projects that are completed and live. You are smart enough and had the drive to get to your position- now don't just kill the fire since you've reached your goal- start building your legacy. Even though you are in management, you are have to stop treating us like you're smarter than everyone else. You can be the best darn coach in any sport but without your assistant coaches or players, you are nothing.
