    Pros

    Great benefits that range from 401K matching to Food Truck Wednesdays. There is a game room with air hockey, pinball, and ping pong along with some gaming systems and on-site laundry. Free coffee and beverages in the kitchens at all times.

    The technology used is second to none. Video calls to speak with colleagues in Tunisia, Germany, Jamaica, and all other locales is phenomenal! This makes traveling to remote sites and meeting people face-to-face so much easier than if calls were held over a simple bridge.

    Cons

    The culture at Vistaprint really has seemed to change over the past couple of years, which has been extremely evident after their U.S. location moved from Lexington, MA to Waltham, MA. In the past 11 months, there have been three layoffs, with the most recent impacting over 180 people.

    I worked at Vistaprint full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible work environment. Salaries are competitive.

    Cons

    Used to be a company filled with really smart and motivated people, but unfortunately many of the most talented people have left or are looking to leave. Lack of strategy and leadership has ruined what used to be a great company to work for. Management doesn't really care about the customer even though they say they do. Recent financial troubles a clear sign that things will only get worse before they get better. Self-promotion tends to be rewarded over actually delivering results.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in a strong, experienced leadership team that can effectively build a long-term strategy and stick to it. Make some efforts to re-energize the employees that are still there and bring back the spark that once made Vistaprint a good place to work.

    Pros

    Good people
    Great work-life balance, PTO, flexible schedules
    Better than market compensation
    Good perks code freeze pizza, happy hours, food trucks

    Cons

    Management continues to shift focus on a regular basis resulting in confusion and low morale. Focus has shifted from growth through acquisitions, to a platform based e-commerce to intrinsic value and maximizing cashflow.

    Advice to Management

    The organizational changes are tough on your employees, There are a lot of good companies in the Boston area that are now looking to Vistaprint to find new talent.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance
    Flexible hours
    Excellent compensation
    Good perks
    Hires the best of the best

    Cons

    Mixed vision direction (where are we REALLY going?)
    Senior management not paying attention
    Loss of great talent
    Impossible to get anything done

    Advice to Management

    Someone dropped the ball so that we need to cut $20-$22-million in headcount, and they likely aren’t about to lose their job. Vistaprint will never be a great company again letting stuff like get past us. I’m honestly shocked it did. With some of the greatest minds, how could this have been allowed to happen? So very disappointed.

    Pros

    Overall employee benefits package was really good considering paid time off PTO (vacation), medical insurance, dental insurance and other benefits; we used to have Fun Fridays during spring to fall months.

    Cons

    Culture used to be really intense for mid-level employees but much easier on newer employees ; starting out through two years.
