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

    Pros

    Coworkers were more like family than friends. They hired great people for the most part.

    Cons

    Every year that I worked at Shutterfly was worse than the last. They are on a constant downhill slope as far as employee moral and benefits go. I couldn't wait to leave Shutterfly after many years without a single pay promotion. Absolutely absurd.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your employees and less on your wallet.
