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

    Pros

    You have flexibility in terms of commuting/ time spent in office, and work with great people and communicative leaders.

    Cons

    You need to be able to be able to be quick and accepting of change. I've been with the company a little over one year, where half of the executive staff has changed, seen 3 CEOs, and an entire re-organiztion of the marketing team.

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

    Pros

    Great learning experience and a new perspective in the printing industry

    Cons

    I wasn't a huge fan of how they implemented their PTO policy. Due to COVID-19 the lines to clock in changed from three down to one. I worked alongside many Adecco employees and they had a small window to how late they could be. Whereas the shutterfly employees were penalized for being late one minute. The speed of the lines varied and it was a little difficult to plan ahead sometimes. The minimum about of PPTO to use to cover this was one hour. As the company began hiring more temp workers the probability of being late increased. Frankly for this reason I prefered to leave on my own terms.

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

    Pros

    -Leadership is so transparent with topics that are top of mind to employees (COVID19, BLM Movement, Financials.. etc). They have been hosting a weekly forum where employees can anonymously ask questions and leadership will answer them on a LIVE forum. I have never worked for a company where c-suite has been so inclusive and transparent with the company's health and initiatives. -My manager and team are extremely inclusive and collaborative when it comes to decision making or process changes. -Overall work hard / play hard mentality between teams which is great because it shows the commitment and passion people have for their jobs at SFLY.

    Cons

    I can't think of any at this time...

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

    Pros

    All the overtime you could want during “Q4” (peak season). Nice fancy coffee/ soda machines Work is easy, for the most part.

    Cons

    Upper management and full time employees looked down on temp employees and we were treated as less than. They dangle getting hired on to work you to death only to “release you of your assignment” when you least expect it.

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

    Pros

    Shutterfly has a great product portfolio, loyal customers and smart employees that truly care about the business.

    Cons

    The company has been in transition for the past few years with 3 different CEOs, a purchase by a private equity firm and a relocation (e.g., layoffs) of key teams out of the Bay Area. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has created a number of challenges for the business.

    Pros

    - Good management culture. No micromanagement - Great benefits - Hired during the Covid-19 pandemic, the management up to the C-level has shown to be very supportive to the employees.

    Cons

    Some technologies are a bit obsolete. However the organization is on the good track on modernizeing the arsenal. Work Equipments could be better
