Pros

VistaPrint's leadership position in the industry. Solution-focused, team-oriented culture. Fun, smart and passionate people to work with. Good work/life balance. Innovative environment, with 16 patents and another 46 pending. Opportunities to work with leading-edge technologies. With the aggressive growth of the company (50%+ revenue growth) there are always opportunities to step-up and take on additional responsibility.

Cons

With so many smart and talented people to work with new people really need to be sharp. Senior management should try to be more accessible and communicate more often about where the company is going and how the employees' efforts are contributing to achieving long-term goals.

Advice to Management

Try to communicate more to the employees about how their efforts will lead to achieving the company's long-term goals.

    Pros

    There is still plenty of opportunity to learn on the job how a .com is run successfully and how it can be transformed into a $1B business.

    The opportunity is especially great for software engineers coming out of college and for experienced project/program managers that can deal with constant friction and uncertainty that comes with such a dynamic environment.

    In general, if you want to work in a place that culturally believes in data-driven decision making, focus on business results, while maintaining a very fast pace of growth, this is probably one of the best companies to work for in the Boston area.

    Compensation is also fairly good, especially if you are perceived as a high performer.

    Cons

    Vistaprint used to feature the best aspects of a small company, but with the advantages of a big company. Unfortunately, at this point of its lifecycle, this has reversed: Vistaprint is now featuring many negative aspects of a small company, with the disadvantages of a larger company.

    Overall, the company is being transformed from a low-politics/results focused innovation engine to a high-politics/bureaucratic-driven organization.

    In my opinion, this is best suited as a transition-job company for one's career, i.e. work and learn (or build your resume) there for a few years and then move on. The opportunities for medium-long term growth is limited.

    Advice to Management

    - Try to maintain the positive aspects of the company culture as the company grows.
    - Find ways to grow people within the organization, otherwise you will start losing talent (something that has already started to happen).
    - While growing the organization to support an $x billion/year company is a very important task, Vistaprint is still not a large company.
