    I have been working at Shutterfly full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Shutterfly has it all. Work life balance (unlimited PTO, work from home), flexible scheduling (based on your life), incredible benefits (RSUs for senior FT employees and above), competitive pay, and some of the best leadership I've ever seen. Transparency actually exists here, and so does teamwork. I have been here over a year and still love coming to work every day.

    Cons

    The HQ is in RWC and there are disconnects between that culture and the other facilities. Not necessarily a bad thing because that means other locations have the flexible of the Bay/Tech area culture, but can be hard to get "noticed" since execs are not around as much. Multiple departments have only one person who knows what is going on. Start cross training to make sure if such an employee did leave, it won't be detrimental to the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employees on what makes them feel appreciated. Check in with those that start to decline in participation. This is a work environment that holds very high expectations of its employees, and this helps people succeed (in my opinion).

    Pros

    Great company if you land in the right team. If not, good luck to you and your sanity.

    Cons

    Way to much drama for a stationary company. Morale is low here. Some teams do better than others. Avoid the marcom team. That’s is the worst team.

    Advice to Management

    Promoting lifers doesn’t equal good management. Hire the right people for the position instead.
