Current Employee - Manager in Redwood City, CA
Current Employee - Manager in Redwood City, CA
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Lots of perks (food, snacks, beverages)
Smart and creative people
Good business strategy
Good focus on margins of products
Quarterly bonuses
Cross-functional teamwork is strong
Strong style/design focus

Cons

No process at all for career development
The approval process for promotion is a veiled, seemingly secret, maze
Too Top-heavy
Executives who are not savvy and up-to-date with modern marketing, branding, or advertising strategies
Slow to innovate in mobile/tablet/digital
Little focus on usability
Little to no eco-friendly policies and procedures
Not enough money spent on marketing to increase Shutterfly awareness
Social media approach is scattered and not focused

Advice to Management

Each manager should define a career development timeline and plan for each employee
Given that SFLY products use so much chemicals and paper, institute some sort of eco-friendly position on something - anything
Shutterfly needs to lead the way in innovation in mobile and digital applications
Decision-making truly should be data-driven and not solely based on the opinion and perspective of 1-2 people

    Pros

    The workforce is the most welcoming I have ever encountered; within my first day I felt like part of the team. Everyone has time for you, no question is too small, and there is never a shortage of smiles in the office.

    Cons

    The fact that I'm only here for a temporary time period; my next job won't even compare to the upbeat atmosphere at Shutterfly!
