    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

    Great at keeping employees informed as to the direction of the business; decision making has been streamlined and has had positive effect on completing projects.

    Cons

    Although shifting direction when it is realized the goal cannot be met, it can sometimes be frustrating when that direction is changing more often than expected.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the tremendous amount of communication, transparency and commitment to the growth of the company and to the employees.

    Pros

    Management seems to truly care about career development. The company values are communicated clearly to all levels. The benefits package is great with 14 paid days off the first year.

    Cons

    It can take a long time to see a change implemented since it's such a large company.

    Pros

    Career development

    Lateral and vertical opportunities for growth - great people managers and mentors throughout the middle management and leadership team

    Amazing culture- energetic colleagues, we all learn from each other. I've never worked with such intelligent coworkers who are open to sharing their knowledge and developing others

    Cons

    Shifting priorities / strategy, however if you are building your career and love a dynamic environment, the changes create opportunities for you to grow and challenge yourself

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build and value internal talent

    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.

    I have never worked with smarter and more practical people. Vistaprint hires incredibly motivated individuals and asks them to solve tough problems

    Cons

    Our high growth has caused some growing pains.

    Pros

    - Mentors and buddies are extremely helpful and genuinely want you to learn and succeed.
    - Analytics department is full of smart, friendly, and sociable people.
    - Each Analyst has their own areas of expertise, but roles are always changing, so there is no hoarding of code or selfish behavior when it comes to sharing information.'
    - Great compensation and benefits.
    - Structured promotion process, so you know exactly what you need to do to get to the next level (good communication with your manager is still crucial).

    Cons

    - The training process is fairly disorganized, but due to the "learn on the job" and "ask a lot of questions" mentality, you still learn everything fairly quickly through execution. A lengthier and more rigorous training process specific to your role would be helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Great job! Keep it up! Arrange some facetime with younger members of the team.
