Pros

Creative, passionate co-workers who strive hard to create beautiful and good products.
Good work/home life balance.
Believe that employees are the best advocates of the brand and the products - free and discounted products.

Cons

System of promotions is unevenly applied and flawed. System to apply bonuses is flawed.
Not really a culture of telecommuting. Should be more eco-friendly policies and practices.

Advice to Management

The system to apply bonuses is just off. Plenty of people do a great job and deserve greater proportion of their bonus --- but other teams erroneously give out 5s, skewing bonus distribution for the rest of the company. Also, HR should be better informed of promotions and talking to the appropriate managers for promotions of the people they supervise. There are those who have be here for over 3 years and have never received a promotion, while those who have been here a year get one right away. I understand that some positions open up and create an opportunity, but there's needs to be a system and plan created that encourages employees to continue to build skills and talents and that career opportunities beyond their currently job title is possible.

    Pros

    Employer:
    cares about quality
    cares about employees
    lots of perks
    secure-coming is growing!
    Unlike places who talk the talk, Shutterfly does care about these things from top management down. They commit to their employees with lots of training.

    Cons

    Its seasonal, so there are lots of temporary workers hired by another company. There is lots of time spent training, often on folks who never come back again.

    Advice to Management

    Communication at the lower level is sketchy. Shift Managers communicate different amounts, so lots of information is gained through the old rumour mill.


  2. "A fairly good place to work"
