Demanding, fast-paced, but professionally very rewarding

Pros

Vistaprint offers a dynamic, driven, highly successful, multi-national environment, where you need to be able to prioritise, think on your feet and enjoy working with a very bright peer group. There are huge opportunities as the company grows and your individual ideas and efforts can be seen to make a difference very quickly
Definitely work hard, play hard, but then that is the philosophy of Barcelona anyway and what a great city it is.

Cons

Work-life balance needs to be managed carefully. It is doable,but it is easy to get sucked in to spending too much time in the office.
No room for shrinking violets here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be open to new approaches from outside the company. Just because you have always done it this way in growing up with Vistaprint, doesn't mean that it is still necessarily the best way.

    Pros

    Great vision and strategy from top management, the company still has huge growth opportunities in the industry, many good people to work with

    Cons

    Even with a management development program many mid-level managers do not have the appropriate skills to be effective, not necessarily the start-up feel they try to promote

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and sharing the vision with the employees this is what keeps many people at this company!

    Pros

    International environment and a great way to learn e-marketing in a high growth environment . Many nationalities make it an interesting and cosmopolitan place to be.

    Cons

    50-60 hour weeks under the auspices of discretionary effort..! Too much to do, too little time to do it in and the 80/20 rule is used regularly as the pressure release- so just as long as you get it done then it doesnt have to be perfect -but be aware the 20 % that you dont do is the 20% that management come back and ask you loads of questions about and beat beat you up over .
    Only work here if you are single and dont have interests other than work.
    Highly data driven environment means that work relationships and how things are done are not important its more about what you do and the $ results your activities bring in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Vistaprint needs to start recruiting marketing talent in country rather than continue with the strategy of trying to find emarketing talent in spain

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
