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

    Pros

    Generally very nice people to work with. Reasonable work life balance. There are a lot of different brands within the company to work on and memory/photo sharing is a pretty interesting product - not just another app or widget.

    Cons

    It is slow to change, very risk averse and/or tight fisted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to new ideas from employees. Don't be penny wise and pound foolish. Our customers love us, get more/new customers. Evolve the site more quickly or risk being outdated. Customers change so should we.
