I have been working at Shutterstock full-time (More than a year)
What's not to love! You get to work at one of the coolest tech companies, whose employees are passionate about the customers, contributors and the product. There are so many reasons why I love this place. To name a few: the people are awesome, culture is amazing, fitness AND tuition reimbursement, FREE breakfast and lunch every day plus Seamless 'After Dark' for if you work late, better benefits than I've had at other companies (even for your pets!!), not to mention, you get a FREE Shutterstock account (I use mine every day!), weekly massages, the list goes on!
I really love that they take the initiative by finding creative ways to give back. For example, Shutterstock matches donations we make through 'Brightfunds' for charities across the board even disaster relief fundraising efforts for the 2017 hurricane victims, which meant a lot, because my family was affected!
Depending on your department, you can really make your role your own. Shutterstock is for doers. Roll up your sleeves and throw yourself in, you'll feel good about it and you will know that you matter here!
My favorite thing of all ...you work in the Empire State Building!!!
I've read a lot of reviews before writing my own, and here is what I have to say:
1. If you can complain about the lunch, everyone makes enough money to go out and by your own!
2. Feedback from Managers; It seems that this is something that the new HR Leadership is working hard to change, and they've implemented some new review & feedback tools. Even Peer to Peer recognition! I appreciate that.
3. No gripes, just thankful and happy to call Shutterstock my Work Home.
Advice to Management
Keep making career development and listening to employees the priorities. We love it!
I applied online. I interviewed at Shutterstock (New York, NY) in June 2017.
I applied online for the open AR Specialist role at Shutterstock in early June 2017.
Compared to past interviews I've recently experienced with a myriad of NYC-based firms , the recruitment process for this position was very seamless, simple and surprisingly fun. The entire process only took 3 weeks, from the application submission to the final decision.
I went through three rounds of interviews: the first round involved a quick phone screen with an HR representative; the second round involved a 30-minute phone interview with my future supervisor; and the third round involved an on-location interview with three members of the Accounting/Finance team at Shutterstock's immaculate headquarters in NYC's ESB.
Each interview at the headquarters lasted about 30 minutes; however, there were no "curve-ball" questions which was very reassuring. Furthermore, each interviewer was very personable, enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
On the following day after the third interview, I was immediately presented with a great offer that my previous company could not even come close to matching. Without hesitation, I accepted the offer and look forward to joining the Shutterstock team in two weeks!
