I have been working at Vistaprint full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Software development is done The Right Way, and when it isn't, corrections are made
- Access to preferred tools and software without having to fight through red tape
- Flexible working hours and arrangements
- Generous PTO allocations
- Management is listening to people when they say they want opportunities to move laterally

Cons

- Change comes slowly at large organizations.
- Good ideas don't always win out, though they often do. (It helps to have a well-connected champion if you want to change something.)

Advice to Management

Tying performance bonuses for lower-level people to company performance is a bit of a head-scratcher, particularly when the economic situation is Europe is largely to blame for underperformance. There's nothing Vistaprint can really do to move the needle much here.

    I have been working at Vistaprint full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some great people, free drinks, work/life balance if you have proven yourself, IT team is helpful

    Cons

    A lot of poor managers, nonperformers are kept around too long, promotions come frequently for some (and not always on merit), management doesn't have a good handle on what is going on at the mid and lower levels, morale seems the lowest it has been since I've been at the company

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with your team. Check in once in a while at the morale rather than waiting until someone leaves to take a pulse.
