    Pros

    work with many smart and professional people, fast moving with very little politics, promotion is fair and transparent.

    Cons

    office space is so openly seen and there is no privacy at work, and it gets distracted when you try to concentrate at work.

    Advice to Management

    change the office space and layout

    Pros

    Vistaprint provides room for growth. It has a great working environment environment. Employee engagement is a priority and this helps to build loyalty for entry level staff.

    Cons

    There are too many changes in a short space of time. It puts a toll on you to see people lose their jobs due to rapid and continuous change.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay for support roles in Jamaica.

    Pros

    Great company, super management.
    You hire really smart and capable people, but sometimes those people are super mean and just A-holes. Get a no mean people policy, it would help things there. A lot.
    I respect Robert Keane and think he is one of the best CEOs ever. He cares about the people a LOT. Super nice guy, too. Humble.

    Cons

    They made me feel I never did enough although I got great reviews and was a top performer. Ultimately I left because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up.

    Pros

    There are definitely competitive salaries at all levels of the organization. Other employees are super smart and willing to help.

    Vistaprint is an amazing place to work right out of college because there is a ton of opportunity to learn.

    Benefits are awesome. Like, super awesome. 10 weeks 100% paid maternity leave; plenty of PTO; great insurance; great work/life balance.

    The current building is nice but the new building will be even better!

    Cons

    There are a lot of early 20-somethings with limited experience managing both people and products which leads to questionable decisions. It seems that management has recognized this, though, and the tide is changing.

    The back end of the website is dated and overly complex. There is a tendency to build and then not tend to the code and not extend the learning once the developer who has created the tool or code has left the company.

    Pros

    The people there were great - still keep in touch with a bunch, including my old boss. Beer on Friday's a great place to talk to people and get good opinions

    Cons

    Tough to move up, which is one of the reasons that I left. There were definitely some people that had been there for a long time, doing the same job, which is one thing I did not want to look back upon in 8 - 10 years.

    My one concern is that I have heard through my friends that still work there that they are going through some middle - management layoffs. This is the kind of thing that was absolutely out of the question while I was there - everybody happy, needed, and secure in their roles. It seems that going public might have pushed the company into "how can we improve short term bottom line" mode...

    Advice to Management

    Create a culture where advancement and career track is clear and visible.

    Pros

    Vistaprint offers a great environment for entry level or younger workers. Weekly happy hours with free food are a great draw for those in their 20s. I've also never worked in such a large company where the young co-workers are so tight. Many of them vacation together, live together, and go through all of their career and major life events together. In that way, this is an excellent company for those who want to come in young and build roots that will last for a lifetime.

    Cons

    Frequently changing leadership was a disappointment for me. We would form a group, gel, build momentum...and then things would change again. After doing it a few times, it got very old and prevented us from moving forward.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on those who manage people to make sure they are managing down -- as well as "managing up."
