I have been working at Shutterfly full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Company successful, stock has doubled in last 12 months, growing quickly (recently acquired key competitors like Kodak Gallery, Tiny Prints and My Publisher)
- Strong leadership team. CEO in particular is passionate about the company and has a strong vision
- Great work environment. Smart, driven people who set aggressive goals and work hard to achieve them. At the same time, work/life balance is good. Very team-oriented (as opposed to cutthroat) and collaborative environment. People here are fun to work with.
- Good opportunities for career growth. Since the company is growing and because there are multiple brands, there are opportunities to shift around and try different things or move to another brand.
- Because we focus on photo-oriented products and are so consumer-oriented, work is way more fun (as opposed to selling widgets)
- Compensation seems as good or better than comparable companies

Cons

- If you live in SF, like I do, the commute can be miserable

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Organize shuttle service to and from the city, as more and more talent is choosing to live in the city and commute remotely (e.g., Google, Facebook, EA, etc.)

    Pros

    Profitable company that invests in equipment and automation year over year. Sound business idea that should be around for a long time.

    Cons

    Management very much a clique and those not in the in crowd are definitely not in the in crowd. Quickly went from .com start up to big ship corporate with politics, closed doors and hubris.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None can be given because they are too important and smart to take any advice.
