    I have been working at Shutterfly as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    A great atmosphere to work in. People are nice. Collaboration is encouraged.
    The Santa Clara Office has amazing views of Great America Park and the new 49ers stadium.
    Lots of perks in the office, like food/drink/snack, ping pong and foosball tables.

    Cons

    They treat contractors as a bit of a second sort employees. Not invited to company events, cut unceremoniously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider retaining a contractor that already knows the stack, if he wants to stay rather than hiring a new person to re-train.

    I have been working at Shutterfly as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a pretty chill and laid back job. As long as you do what you are supposed to do, no one bothers you. You get a bunch of free stuff.

    Cons

    Bad morale in the call center. After the peak season, if there aren't that many people calling in, you get sent home with no pay. These customers are some of the nastiest, most rude, and most needy people I have ever encountered before in my life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and care more about the morale. The happier your employees are, the better customer service they will give. Remember, your employees are YOUR customers too!

    Pros

    Great people, fun environment, good pay

    Cons

    Shutterfly's busiest season begins in October and does not end until Christmas day. With so many mandatory overtime hours you will literally live at the place. It is difficult to create a healthy work:life balance. I worked in customer service, schedules changed consistently sometimes weekly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Match 401k
