A good place to learn, but not so hot for a long-term career

Engineer (Current Employee)
Redwood City, CA

I have been working at Shutterfly

ProsFun products.
Young and dynamic corporate culture.
Chance to learn Web 2.0 methodologies.
Located in sunny Northern California - a great place to live.
Free and discounted photo gifts - good if you take lots of photos.
Free drinks, cheap snacks.

ConsMediocre benefits package - average salaries, weak bonus scheme, and no 401K match.
Career advancement plans / goals are left to the employees to figure out. Management does not offer any advice or encouragement in this area, other than "do it yourself".

Advice to Senior ManagementStrengthen the benefits package, especially the bonus scheme, and start to match 401K contributions.
Create a work culture that offers a clear path for employees to learn and take on more responsibilties, rather than expecting them to figure it out all on their own.
