    I worked at Shutterfly as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good coworkers
    Good workplace experience
    Good pay for my position

    Cons

    Long hours
    Some of the workers I supervised were questionable in terms of work ethic and overall work ability
    There outside hiring agency Core staff is one of the most poorly run spots of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Try hiring people with good work ethics and who actually want to work. Also focus more on training on the factory floor rather then other training classes for the interns.

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

    Pros

    Shutterfly has a great environment and work culture. Folks are generally happy and most people get along well. The office space in Santa Clara is spacious and comfortable. HR and the social committee do their best to keep morale up.

    Cons

    Occasional long hours particularly in Q4, not helped by the meeting-heavy culture (not uncommon for lots of employees to spend all day in meetings and all night doing their actual work). Meetings could be pared down to be more efficient and employees could be judged on their work rather than on how many hours they spend in the office. Career advancement often based on seniority.

    Advice to Management

    If long hours are expected during Q4, make up for it by being more flexible with working hours during quieter months.
