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.

    Pros

    Shutterfly is a great place to work. Everyone here is very smart, very nice, and very good at what they do. Upper management is fairly clear in their directives, and everyone generally seems to be on the same page about what direction we are heading. The work-life balance here is one of the best I've ever encountered - while expectations are high and everyone wants to do their best, everyone also understands that there is a time to relax and have fun, both with co-workers and with your own families.

    Cons

    This is a fairly "flat" organization, and there are not a lot of opportunities for career advancement. Additionally, the quarterly review system is a bit flawed in that it allows for reviews only of an employee by a manager - while the employee contributes heavily to the review process, there is no opportunity for peer reviews, nor is there any opportunity for the employee to give feedback on the manager.

    Advice to Management

    Give all employees the opportunity to review their manager, and to review and be reviewed by their peers. Continue to offer the great team building opportunities that you currently offer, education opportunities that you offer, and keep encouraging people to perform at high levels.
