    Current Employee - Senior Program Manager in Redwood City, CA

    I have been working at Shutterfly full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great team members, really good work-life balance with the flexibility to take care of your personal business when you need to. Discount on products.

    Cons

    Over the years, Shutterfly has lost its long term vision and putting the customer first, and focused too much on immediate, short-term gains, resulting in tech-debt and short-cutting on product development. This can make it frustrating as the issues pile up year after year, short cut after short cut.

    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Shutterfly full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Colleagues generally have a good, can-do attitude; appealing company mission, good work life/balance, desire to evolve and improve the C/X

    Cons

    The desire to make Shutterfly a better product/service is frequently curtailed by pragmatic and basic fixes. Managers are neither well trained nor held accountable on how to develop their people. As a result, career development is sub-par vs other organizations.

    Advice to Management

    There has been a significant change to e-staff which is promising. In the new private company, I recommend that senior staff act more as advisors and champions of ideas, vs in the weeds. In addition, the business would benefit in balancing its short-term operating model with a medium-term growth mindset. If not, Shutterfly will weaken its differentiation and customer satisfaction.

    I have been working at Shutterfly full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Extremely flexible, people come in around 10 and leave at 4. Very relaxed Small company since many left after the recent acquisition , which creates an intimate environment for employees. Great employees. The people at Shutterfly are very nice.

    Cons

    Poor Management - managers are not very engaged. Most have been at the company for over 6 years+ and have called it in. Don't expect to learn too much from them. Minimal Backfill - They haven't been backfilling all those that have left the company. Pay & Promotion - Shutterfly pays lower compared to other companies and it's very difficult to get promoted. The increase of pay after promotion is low. Favoritism -... management has favorites. Plays out in meetings and promotions. New acquisition - nobody know what the outcome will be. Private equity firm purchased Shutterfly and there could potentially be layoffs, as is common for these types of situations.

    Advice to Management

    Apollo, the company that acquired Shutterfly, needs to hold in person interviews with employees to get real feedback about the management issues. Take feedback seriously.

    I have been working at Shutterfly full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    unlimited PTO, hours, employees, and co-workers

    Cons

    local leadership is a good old boys club and if your not part of them, you will go nowhere. Promotions are out of the question if you're not part of the cool kids club.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable and foster peoples growth, do not hold employees back.
