I worked at Vistaprint full-time for more than a year

Pros

Smart people. Entrepreneurial atmosphere. Free beer and pizza on Fridays. Cool marketing.

Cons

The poster child for The Peter Principle. Too many people hired who are not trained or capable of being effective managers/leaders. Lot of turnover, which management seems oblivious to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Come down from the glass tower, breath the air, and remind yourself that happy employees will translate to happy shareholders. Invest money in upgrading the internal technology.

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

    Pros

    Pay, People, Location, anything I should list about the company are pros.

    Cons

    Maybe the reputation. (compare to Google). When I started, some of my friends confused that if the company has anything to do with Microsoft's Windows Vista. Now they have TV Commercials and I believe that it's not a con anymore.

    If you do choose to join this company do NOT join their Digital/Electronic Services team

    I worked at Vistaprint full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - somewhat modern company
    - there's some good pockets of team within the company that are technology intensive and a great place to be in
    - Great place to be in if you like product development, product management or marketing

    Cons

    - Heavy politics, lots of white men with huge egos been here more than 5 years and ruling their capabilities
    - Limited freedom of opinion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please ensure some of your middle management in capabilities are eliminated for a better organization
