I have been working at Vistaprint full-time

Pros

- beer on Fridays
- good benefits (dental, 401k)

Cons

- managers don't necessarily have a lot of experience managing people and helping with your career
- has become very corporate feeling

Advice to Management

Open your eyes. Stop protecting people who shouldn't be here and get some managers in marketing who know what they are doing.

    I worked at Vistaprint full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very relaxed atmosphere and culture
    In Capabilities most managers leave employees to their work so rarely is someone breathing down your neck
    Flex hours and unlimited sick days / remote opportunities.
    Free food and other random perks
    Depending on the group, you have lots of freedom to try your own projects as long as they help the company in some way.
    Pay is about average for the Boston area.

    Cons

    There are politics that exist between groups and certain teams definitely feel they are "superior" to other groups. Difficult to get help across teams when other people are never willing to buy-in.

    The company does not handle low or under performing employees well. Other team members end up carrying the weight.

    Advice to Management

    The company is going through lots of reorgs so there has been turnover across all levels. The future strategy seems good, but there is a lot of hard work to get there. Expect to see some coming and going while they realign themselves.

    I have been working at Vistaprint full-time

    Pros

    Bright, driven people are great to work with. Management cares about them.

    Great locations globally. Lot of opportunity to try new things.

    Cons

    Focus has sometimes been on shorter term profits, though company line is about long term value. Suburban location is unappealing to many young urban engineers.
