    I have been working at Shutterfly

    Pros

    The people I work with is top on my list. The people at Shutterfly are truly amazing. Its a culture of teamwork that is promoted from the top down. I really enjoy the team that I get to work with every day. I think we try to have fun in everything we do. I love our products, love our free employee codes and know that the customer always comes first.

    Cons

    Biggest con in my book is the amount of bonus for my position. I appreciate that we have a quarterly bonus program versus waiting until the end of the year. My only wish would be for a larger bonus percentage or differentiation based on your job level (employee, manager, director, etc). More stock options or equity would be nice as well. My former jobs have offered more in these areas then what Shutterfly has given to me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be passionate and show your passion for what we do. I enjoy seeing our leaders be excited by new opportunities we are providing to our customers.

    I have been working at Shutterfly

    Pros

    Employer:
    cares about quality
    cares about employees
    lots of perks
    secure-coming is growing!
    Unlike places who talk the talk, Shutterfly does care about these things from top management down. They commit to their employees with lots of training.

    Cons

    Its seasonal, so there are lots of temporary workers hired by another company. There is lots of time spent training, often on folks who never come back again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication at the lower level is sketchy. Shift Managers communicate different amounts, so lots of information is gained through the old rumour mill.
