I have been working at Vistaprint full-time

Pros

Great work/life balance, good compensation. Work is not difficult, there just is a lot of it to do

Cons

Learn to say no, or else the work will pile up. Lots of old tech debt from years of "get it done no matter what" culture. Trying to change directions now leads to lots of legacy refactoring of 6+ year old systems

Advice to Management

Too many junior managers with little experience outside of 'manager training' internally run. Career managers don't do a great job

    Pros

    When I first started at Vistaprint, it was a very innovative, entrepreneurial company. Benefits are good: Vistabreak - 4 weeks paid vacation on top of standard at 4 years), vacation time, 401k, health, occasional lunch, pay.

    Cons

    Vistaprint has grown more quickly than it can keep up with. If you're just starting now, you'll probably still like it because you won't know the early days, but it has become much more process-driven, and lost the innovation that I once loved. Also, not everyone is cut out to be managers, so don't automatically put people on that track. It hinders growth to have a poor mentor leading you and your team.

    Advice to Management

    Remove some of the politics and make development based on talent and results vs. who you know and time in role.
