    I worked at Shutterfly full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good commute if you live mid-Peninsula. Parking is plentiful. Generous free product benefit. On-site espresso and cold drinks are free.

    Cons

    Dubious position in the overall economy. Unsustainable debt load. Ripe for acquisition by vulture fund. Vision for company growth is muddy, poorly communicated by execs, and executed haphazardly. Differentiation between competitors is minimal, price pressure intense.

    Mid-to-upper management style is very political, rife with favoritism and cliques. Engineering budget wholly owned by marketing. ICs directed to do exactly as they're told, free thinkers shown the door. Fearful of new things. Skeptical of change. Groupthink.

    Advice to Management

    Wait until your RSUs vest, dump them and run -- oh, wait, you're already doing that.

    Take a closer look at your Senior Managers, they are hurting you, and putting you at risk. Be courageous and take ownership of your faults, and fix them.
