Glad to have worked there, but also glad to leave

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Lexington, MA

ProsThere is still plenty of opportunity to learn on the job how a .com is run successfully and how it can be transformed into a $1B business.

The opportunity is especially great for software engineers coming out of college and for experienced project/program managers that can deal with constant friction and uncertainty that comes with such a dynamic environment.

In general, if you want to work in a place that culturally believes in data-driven decision making, focus on business results, while maintaining a very fast pace of growth, this is probably one of the best companies to work for in the Boston area.

Compensation is also fairly good, especially if you are perceived as a high performer.

ConsVistaprint used to feature the best aspects of a small company, but with the advantages of a big company. Unfortunately, at this point of its lifecycle, this has reversed: Vistaprint is now featuring many negative aspects of a small company, with the disadvantages of a larger company.

Overall, the company is being transformed from a low-politics/results focused innovation engine to a high-politics/bureaucratic-driven organization.

In my opinion, this is best suited as a transition-job company for one's career, i.e. work and learn (or build your resume) there for a few years and then move on. The opportunities for medium-long term growth is limited.

Advice to Senior Management- Try to maintain the positive aspects of the company culture as the company grows.
- Find ways to grow people within the organization, otherwise you will start losing talent (something that has already started to happen).
- While growing the organization to support an $x billion/year company is a very important task, Vistaprint is still not a large company.

    A billion dollar company but volatile like a start up

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


    Pros: Great colleagues, good working environment and good compensation and benefits.… Cons: Constant re-orgs and change in Strategy with talent leaving or made redundant gets moral down. Who or what's… Advice to Senior Management: Get more senior upper management into the organisation outside of Vistaprint and… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
