    Great team and collaboration on projects, poor, indecisive direction from management

    I worked at Snapfish

    Pros

    Snapfish has a very talented team of hard working individuals who support one another to get the job done.

    Cons

    Poor direction, leadership from the top. Teams work hard on last minute projects which end up not coming to fruition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Snapfish employees work best if led by a carrot/positive reinforcement, instead of a stick, uncertainty and fear.

    Pros

    Nice cooworkers
    Can work from home

    Cons

    Salary sucks and is varies wildly.
    No real plan/vision
    Culture of blame (other groups)
    No cooperation between Marketing and other groups.
    Head of marketing, a lot of ego and not much substance.
    New management disapproves at people working from home, but that is one of the few things that people enjoy about working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of here and start a taco truck.

    I worked at Snapfish

    Pros

    Some good and talented people to work with
    Fun and meaningful product
    Good office location

    Cons

    Not good at recognizing, rewarding and promoting great talent
    Antiquated technology and poor engineering knowledge and direction
    Poor work life balance
    Too many business deals resulting in a host of special one offs that makes new feature development extremely difficult
    Takes very long and many resources to release features

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revitalize senior management with people that can lead, set strategy, innovate and foster great talent. Recognize something is wrong by the amount of so many great employees leaving the company and make positive changes to help grow the business and keep good people.

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Fun projects
    People are awesome
    Love my boss and my group

    Cons

    No direction right now - marketing is rearing it's ugly head
    Need a new Head of Product to give us more clear direction for User Experience
    Too many good people left - not enough resources to help with work
    Too many expectations with little direction and no help
    Politics are crazy - too many cooks in the fire
    No raises for almost 3 yrs - compensation needs to change if you want folks to stay
    Innovation is wanted but too hard to get things done with current infrastructure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to lose any more knowledgeable folks - we can't afford to lose anymore. We need guidance from the top down... And try to keep the current employees happy - don't work them to death...

    I have been working at Snapfish

    Pros

    Work/life balance, flexible schedule; challenging and interesting work; fun, friendly and creative people; always changing; security of being owned by HP; passionate employees; competitive compensation and great location.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional top leadership. Senior team lacks vision and/or doesn't communicate it well with the organization. Constant finger pointing and throwing people under the bus (in front of others!). Very little trust or confidence in employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are so many talented people working here who have years of experience and they deserve your respect and acknowledgment.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for Snapfish are that the products are fun and creative. There are some really smart and nice people working as individual contributors.

    Cons

    The big downside is the terrible senior management. We have a terrible rulers (not leaders) who love power, love having final approval, changes policy to comply with any given circumstance. It's a real mess. The direction feels schizophrenic, draconian and unreasonable at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to delegate without micromanaging.

    I worked at Snapfish

    Pros

    snapfish is acquired by HP, so a HP experience would look good in my resume

    Cons

    I joined snapfish based on the false impressions that it's part of HP, and should be respectful and fun to work.

    However it's very disorganized there, the management don't listen to any suggestions from the engineers. I worked in a team which has a very unforgiving schedule that don't even allow engineers to have enough time to sleep. If I disagree with anything, the director would go to my cube yelling at me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please show some respects to the engineers

    I have been working at Snapfish

    Pros

    Fun, fast pace environment. The company continues to grow. Great opportunities within the company and HP for career growth, great pay and benefits with flexible work environment. Great place to work in a small start up environment, but with the safety of being backed by a fortune 10 company.

    Cons

    HR can be extremely slow, plenty of room to streamline regular processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring young bright talent, continue to think outside the box and go for new more innovative products. Continue to drive for greater efficiencies and keep the small company culture.
