Shutterfly is a great place to make a difference in a fun industry for a company that's not too big and not too small.

Pros

Fun product and service, good culture with smart people, not to big and not too small, solid buisiness that makes money in good times and bad, good place to learn from experienced and sucessful people especially the management team. All in all I'm pretty happy and its much better than the other four valley companies I've worked for.

Cons

Twice a month during product releases the hours increase. We don't have the resources that Google or Oracle had so the "free" perks aren't as great.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The leadership team is very smart and cares about the company but sometimes the communication stalls as it trickles down. Continue to reach out to the employees through the brown bag lunches, all hands meetings, and departmental get togethers.

    Pros

    There was a coupious ammount of free product available to empoyees to test their own "dog food". However be aware that this has been cut back a bit in the past although a free 12x12 photobook is worth it. The hours are reasonable - although the CEO is known to walk around a bit at strange times and take notes of who is there late - not considering who go there early

    Cons

    After closing the Hayward facility, its hard, from a corporate perspective to get to see production without a bit of travel. Communication from senior management to the workers is not always clear (it is very market speak and thus for non-Marketing people can be very confusing). Strategy seems to change based upon the whim or 1 or 2 VPs and not for much other reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open and honest about what is going on. Dont rely on the extended-eStaff to communicate outwards - they dont

    Pros

    This company offers a relaxed atmosphere with good pay and good benefits. Management takes good care of employees by providing free snacks (chips, breakfast bars, oatmeal) and beverages (coffee, soda, tea, juice) in the break room as well as providing a free buffet for occassional extended shifts during the high volume, holiday season. They have a relaxing room that includes a massaging recliner and a tv. A game room offering a chance to unwind and play, wii, xbox and playstation games on a flat screen tv during breaks or lunches.

    Cons

    Poor ergonomic setup of work area. And on occasion, the heating/cooling system was inconsistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To provide better ergonomics. Otherwise, "ROCK ON!"
