    Pros

    Smart people, great culture and amazing perks. Lots of opportunities to learn and grow. Though things vary between teams, generally a very flexible place and good work-life balance.

    Cons

    The location - it is quite far off from the city. Though there are public/free commute options. Quite a few changes / re-org lately.

    Pros

    Lots of challenging work as company moves to scale up and modernize technology. Aggressive moves being made to refactor codebase, get into open source / 3rd party and focus instead on core specialties. Printing industry and customization problem for products makes this different than standard ecommerce web site selling inventory of products from catalog.

    Cons

    Some of the above are also cons - large, old codebase in need of modernization. Lots of projects, prioritization is a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Help streamline prioritization of work for technology department, don't fill backlog with too many projects and competing priorities which have defocusing effect.

    Pros

    Good benefit. Nice perks. Smart people some of which has no work ethics and hard to deal with.

    Cons

    There are too many changes in a short period of time. people lose their jobs due to rapid and continuous changes. too much hypocrisy. No transparency. Lay off of considerate number of people few times a year. Employees among some teams bully each other in order to climb the ladder faster. No privacy in the office space. If you stay there just to get stabbed in the back.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes to what is going on in this daycare.

    Pros

    it was a great fun company with AMAZING culture

    Cons

    the great Vistaprint culture is largely gone by now, the audacity has been replaced with fear and unhealthy competition

    Advice to Management

    time to update that recruiting video - most of our colleagues from the happy party scenes (including the Canada Day one) are GONE, restructured, laid off, gone to find better places.
