    I worked at Shutterfly full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Variety of free company products

    Cons

    Full time workers rarely get bonuses and yearly raises are a joke. Low pay if you're in production and no guaranteed hours. Also company was bought out so you're job could be gone if they decide to cut costs.

    I worked at Shutterfly

    Pros

    Decent work life balance Nice people

    Cons

    This company used to be decent, but it was bought by a private equity firm that is slashing jobs. Culture of company has been on the steady decline. Pay is not competitive and no annual raises. Work is not challenging or innovative. Very siloed teams.

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

    Pros

    collaborative environment, friendly co-workers that seem more like friends, great opportunities to work on interesting projects as many things are still in development

    Cons

    As of the current date, Shutterfly is going through a serious transition to a private company integrating competitor businesses. Your job could be terminated / moved to a different location with little notice.

    I worked at Shutterfly

    Pros

    Decent pay, but not enough for a web developer.

    Cons

    After the initial interview, I thought it would be a good place to work. I was wrong. Management was always breathing down my neck and always needed things done now! The amount of micromanagement here is unprecedented.

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

    Pros

    Brand-name recognized, the amenities are great at the facility. The pay rate is "okay".

    Cons

    Disasterous merge of companies and the associated egos. Cost / Waste completely out of this world with no realization nor apparent accountability or responsibility. The hiring process of complete ill skilled, and barely capable of self care let alone quality and pride of doing a crucial job by job focus exists. Management us deplorable by highly energized to be "nice to each other".

    I worked at Shutterfly

    Pros

    Very nice peers. Great teams but management is poor.

    Cons

    H1B visa holders are treated like slaves. No respect to the roles and employees. Positions are opened up impulsively. Recruitment is a mess. It doesn’t matter what the panel’s recommendation is. Power rules. People are demoted or promoted over night and this happens literally every month. Decisions and directions change every day. People are moved to different projects every day. This shows lack of thought process in the management or always, impulsive decisions are made by the management. Process changes are never sent over email. Later Leads are blamed making them scapegoats.
