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

Pros

Worked with the brightest people of my career. Great location, good management in general, and the leadership from the top was fabulous.

Cons

They didn't understand why I did not choose to have a nanny to help take care of my kids. I was in middle management, and the time demands were very high, so I ultimately left because of it.

Advice to Management

Be open to hiring outside the box. I saw some super talent not get hired because they failed the Train Test.

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

    Pros

    Free Beer. Free Food. Many great people to work with

    Cons

    Exceptionally poorly managed business. Decisions made far away from those who do the 'on the ground research'. Many poor investments affecting company financially. Far too much bureaucracy. Terrible work/life balance. What you put in is not what you get out. No job security. Constant feeling of uncertainty and constant changes in org structure leads to lack of consistent strategy execution and many missed opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate authority. Stop making all the decisions from ivory tower - put trust in your managers.

    I have been working at Vistaprint as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Vistaprint is everything I hoped it would be and more. From the people I'm surrounded by to the work itself, I am impressed and challenged every day. It is a "work hard, play hard" culture for sure, and the amount of smart, talented individuals I see here are truly a tribute to Vistaprint's growing success. Not only is the company growing, but its employees are as well. Being a recent graduate, it is the ideal environment where I can develop my career and explore a multitude of avenues within the company.

    Cons

    I'm a contract employee, and I wish it was full-time!
