    I have been working at Shutterfly full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Office environment is very laid back, and the people have become like family. I've been with the company for almost 10 years, and really do think it has been a great place to work. Employee discounts on stationery & photo gifts are a nice perk!

    Cons

    Company is going through restructuring, so lots of jobs & entire departments have been eliminated. Interested to see what kind of direction the company is going in.

    I have been working at Shutterfly full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    3 days on 4 days off
    1$ working differential for working off shift

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunities for growth, no movement upward as everyone whom already fills those rolls have been in them for 5+ years
    No 401k match
    I would advise anyone to work for shutterfly only to meet 1 to 5 year career goals. If your in the right role shutterfly will pay for your training green belt, IT.

    Pros

    Very smart and talented engineering group.

    Cons

    Too many people involved in the planning process around projects. It's a great place to work but groups are locked into a silo and there's not much cross team collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Let the engineering team run the projects and have the PM's get out of the way. You have way too many people having a say into the road map and this slows the team down.

    I worked at Shutterfly full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Heavily segmented workflow. Company enroute to be dominated by Amazon. Average to below average talent which makes sense when you look at compensation. No company perks. Declining product quality. People only do their job and don't care about anything outside their scope. Non-collaborative. Out dated technology. Decreasing YoY in terms of revenue and customers. Lost all their senior staff. Very limited growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Need a major shake up on how things are done.

    First job after graduating from college, and it's been a good experience working here. It's a very friendly workplace; everybody works with you and helps you out.

    The design team is being shut down, so a lot of employees are being laid off.

    Advice to Management

    The management for this company is great.
