    Willing to make strategic changes to ensure the long term health of the business. You'll never be bored.

    Pros

    Very smart CEO who hopefully will have more direct influence on company now that he is based in Lexington. Very good benefits.

    Cons

    The office set-up is very difficult to work in with no privacy and a lot of noise. A lot of infighting between development and marketing. A snarky culture and "I know more than you do" attitude permeates the office.

    Advice to Management

    The company should live by the great set of values it professes. Pay more attention to the mid-level employees to get a true read on the company. Stop talking in acronyms!

    Pros

    work with many smart and professional people, fast moving with very little politics, promotion is fair and transparent.

    Cons

    office space is so openly seen and there is no privacy at work, and it gets distracted when you try to concentrate at work.

    Advice to Management

    change the office space and layout

    Pros

    Vistaprint provides room for growth. It has a great working environment environment. Employee engagement is a priority and this helps to build loyalty for entry level staff.

    Cons

    There are too many changes in a short space of time. It puts a toll on you to see people lose their jobs due to rapid and continuous change.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay for support roles in Jamaica.

    Pros

    Great company, super management.
    You hire really smart and capable people, but sometimes those people are super mean and just A-holes. Get a no mean people policy, it would help things there. A lot.
    I respect Robert Keane and think he is one of the best CEOs ever. He cares about the people a LOT. Super nice guy, too. Humble.

    Cons

    They made me feel I never did enough although I got great reviews and was a top performer. Ultimately I left because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up.

    Pros

    If it was 5/6 years back, then this place was truly one of the best places in the Boston area to work for.
    -1 month sabbatical after 5 years
    -Work/Life Balance depending on org
    -Wonderful coworkers
    -Large Capital budget that truly enabled the best of the best in terms of infrastructure, resources
    -Autonomy depending on your position and org

    Cons

    Senior Management had truly no idea what certain groups/orgs did. Major successes were never communicated up, saving the company $$ would never reach the top if you had a management team that never communicated up and even if they did, it was rarely applauded

    Continuous reorg, shifts in strategies, lack of overall communication
    -Good ole boy/girl network. Its all about who you know. You can do no wrong and or do nothing and be unaffected by any changes.. i e. constant/massive transitions

    Advice to Management

    Look at the top, rather than the bottom. There are some great senior leaders but most don't care about the folks that work hard for them. No guidance, no leadsership and they mainly just play the game that was PGM. Get the story, get promoted on the backs of their people and move on.
