    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 ManagementAdvice

    Continue to build and value internal talent

  7. Amazing Place for a Marketing Internship

    Former Intern - Marketing Associate in Lexington, MA

    I worked at Vistaprint as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    For Intern: Great visibility into the decision-making process, treated like a full employee rather than just a part-time intern, will give you the correct amount of real-world experience without overwhelming you with the workload, will not give you "busy-work" as some other internships do.

    In General: Awesome company culture - polo and jeans is acceptable attire and there are lot's of young, fun people who like to hang out with each other in and out of work; Also, most of the managers support a flexible schedule and allow you to come and go as you please without dealing with taking PTO hours unless you're taking a full day off

    Cons

    No full-time offer guarentee, unsure about the company's future as the world goes digital and print, specifically business cards, become less popular...

    I have been working at Vistaprint full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Vistaprint is a stable, billion dollar company that is shifting focus to the customer after years of neglecting the user experience in favor of quick profits. Finally this is being addressed. They provide very good compensation and a flexible work environment.

    Cons

    For two years now we've experienced mid-level management confusion, and have weathered constant re-orgs. There is a lack of visible leadership. While I have respect for the top-level management, there is a lack of clear top down management.

    Smart people, but too much process and hidden politics

    I worked at Vistaprint full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very smart people. If you're analytical and data driven, you'll get exposed to lots of new ways of looking at the business. Free drinks and food every Friday afternoon.

    Cons

    Too much process in everything. Even something as simple as filling out an employee survey has a process that you must follow for completing the survey. Great for young people that haven't been exposed to other company cultures. Not so great if you have any enterpreneurial inclinations or like to do things fast.

    The hidden politics were unbelieveable. It was like a soap opera with people complaining to senior managers about another person without discussing the issues with that person first. With all these smart people there were also lots of high maintenance personalities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to evolving the culture and changing the senior managers that have been there forever.

    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.
