    Pros

    You can work very little and still get promoted if management likes you.

    Cons

    Lack of clarify in one's role. Company likes to invent titles so that people feel valued.

    I have been working at Shutterfly full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I love the culture at this company! All my co-workers are so open, respectful, nice and really wanting to collaborate. Work life balance is a definite plus along with work flexibility.

    Cons

    A lot of change going on - but everyone is positive and open to the changes.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent in communications, keep the current culture strong.

    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.

    I worked at Shutterfly full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good work life balance, no micromanagement usually. Very chill.

    Cons

    Pay isn't great, but the worst part is the management. The company doesn't take quick enough decisions to fund projects and you can be stuck without any good work for long. Lots of internal politics among managers. There's no career growth for developers here - definitely avoid.

    Advice to Management

    Going private is probably heading in the right direction, but there's so many problems at the root that need to be weeded out.

    I have been working at Shutterfly full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Laid back and super diverse

    Cons

    Managers don’t know what they are doing. Promote the ones who don’t work and the hard workers get left in the dust.

    Advice to Management

    You guys really need to see who you guys have as leads and managers. A drug test policy would be super helpful considering more than half the company does drugs
