Great people, too bad about the management.

I have been working at Shutterfly full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Co-located engineering, good salary, flexible schedule. The individuals in the trenches all seem very well intentioned and skilled. Some internal promising technology. Not much dead weight in the engineering team compared with outer large companies I've worked at.

Cons

Not a "get things done" culture- it mostly attribute this to a very conservative management stye. No risk taking, slow to adopt new ideas and new trends. Strategy consists of "more of the same". Some key executives are micromanagers. Too bad, some of the teams are very talented and could just "makes things happen" if not straddled with such a burdensome management culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1) Look around at what the market is doing, not just what our current customer base does. 2) Meet less, do more. 3) Clean up the product, its all over the map. Customers notice-I hear it from my friends.

    Terrible company

    I worked at Shutterfly

    Pros

    Free snacks and paid overtime
    It will definitely help pay bills

    Cons

    If you are a CMT contractor or PDT.
    Don't Believe them about being hired on.

    All where Let Go.
    They lie and hate the great preformers.

    Keep head down and kiss butt, laugh at their stupid jokes and have sex with female managers if they come on to you. Or your fired.

    I worked at Shutterfly full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture is laid back and fun. They celebrate major holidays and birthdays in the office. The perks are free snacks and drinks in the kitchen, as well as promo codes. There are a lot of team building activities, if you like that sort of thing. If there is down time, you get to help out in other departments if needed. This can be interesting because it allows you to see what other departments do.

    Cons

    The busiest times are during major holidays, like Christmas. Expect to do a lot of overtime between November and December. Be prepared, as it can get very tiring working 12+ hour shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people for the holidays to avoid working mandatory overtime.
