Great place to be if you are patient and entrepreneurial

Manager - Marketing (Current Employee) Redwood City, CA

ProsFantastic brand name, innovative growing company, people who know Shutterfly, love Shutterfly. Great reputation by customers. If you have the right personality, you can do great there. Shutterfly HR does an amazing job of growing a family within Shutterfly. A director here is equal to a VP role at most companies and they pay accordingly.

ConsThese could be cons depending on how you perceive them. To others they may be pros. 1. Still operates like a small start up company with no real processes, so things can get confusing. 2. Other than the product, most parts of marketing are not very innovative. 3. There is 0 onboarding, you have to be a go getter. If you can break through and get past all that - it's great! It takes more than a smart person with a lot of experience to work at Shutterfly. 4. You have to have major politics skills and be ok with dealing with it. It takes a mountain to move a molehill. 5. There is not much leadership from the C levels, you have to find things out on your own and be proactive.

Advice to Senior ManagementC level management needs to be more active and involved, getting hands dirty every once in a while.
