    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...

    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.

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

    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.
