    Pros

    - Company successful, stock has doubled in last 12 months, growing quickly (recently acquired key competitors like Kodak Gallery, Tiny Prints and My Publisher)
    - Strong leadership team. CEO in particular is passionate about the company and has a strong vision
    - Great work environment. Smart, driven people who set aggressive goals and work hard to achieve them. At the same time, work/life balance is good. Very team-oriented (as opposed to cutthroat) and collaborative environment. People here are fun to work with.
    - Good opportunities for career growth. Since the company is growing and because there are multiple brands, there are opportunities to shift around and try different things or move to another brand.
    - Because we focus on photo-oriented products and are so consumer-oriented, work is way more fun (as opposed to selling widgets)
    - Compensation seems as good or better than comparable companies

    Cons

    - If you live in SF, like I do, the commute can be miserable

    Advice to Management

    - Organize shuttle service to and from the city, as more and more talent is choosing to live in the city and commute remotely (e.g., Google, Facebook, EA, etc.)

    I worked at Shutterfly full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture is laid back and fun. They celebrate major holidays and birthdays in the office. The perks are free snacks and drinks in the kitchen, as well as promo codes. There are a lot of team building activities, if you like that sort of thing. If there is down time, you get to help out in other departments if needed. This can be interesting because it allows you to see what other departments do.

    Cons

    The busiest times are during major holidays, like Christmas. Expect to do a lot of overtime between November and December. Be prepared, as it can get very tiring working 12+ hour shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people for the holidays to avoid working mandatory overtime.
