    Pros

    Friendly workers, good hours and pay

    Cons

    No training at all, walked around watching my lead do all the work. They used you during their Holidays then they let you go at the end of year.

    Advice to Management

    Quit using people for your Holiday rush. HIRE PEOPLE

    Pros

    Shutterfly considers itself a high-tech company so food and snacks are plentiful.

    Cons

    One would think that Shutterfly is a happy little company "sharing life's joy" but apparently joy is only for Shutterfly's customers. There's no joy there and oddly enough a very unfriendly environment. Lots of fire drills due to lack of planning, a young workforce that needs mentoring and a leadership team of self-serving white guys who lack both business and social skills.

    Advice to Management

    Being a leader isn't just calling yourself one or by bullying employees. You're only a leader if people truly WANT to follow you. There's so much untapped talent and energy being wasted. Your employees are giving you just a fraction of their what they are capable of -- learn how to lead and employees will respond with a heap of discretionary effort that is completely untapped.

    I love working here. Everyone is friendly and always willing to help. I have never been happier at a job.

    My personal con is the commute, but working for this company makes the commute totally worth it.

    Pros

    I've worked as a Designer at Shutterfly and it's very creative. No one micro manages and forces you to create a specific look and feel. Just create things that suits your own style. The team is fun and nice. We would hang out after work and on the weekends.

    Cons

    Very low pay for contractors.

    Pros

    Clean work environment, highly developed and tested production machinery, employee storage lockers, dining facility

    Cons

    I felt like a number and not a valued individual, no notice of discharge, bad communication between supervisor and subordinates, length of contract did not result out to what was initially discussed.
