    I have been working at Vistaprint full-time

    Pros

    Despite and because of recent poor performance in FY 19, Vistaprint is investing in world-class capabilities in analytically driven marketing, merchandising and pricing.

    Cons

    Continuous change, but management is not afraid to course correct when necessary.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great learning experience in sales

    Cons

    Unorganized start-up even with the backing of a huge company such as Cimpress & lack of diversity

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

    Pros

    Salary + commission was good, PTO was very flexible and above industry standard (almost 4 weeks total), Office was modern, free snacks + coffee.

    Cons

    The biggest con was upper management. While immediate managers were great, upper management never knew what was really going on, always making decisions that hurt the business, especially the sales team.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to have open and honest conversations with employees to create a strategy on how to improve the business.


  5. "Heading downhill"

    Pros

    Some flexibility along with decent benefits

    Cons

    Lots and lots of change. Some seems like it could be positive, but for the most part it doesn’t seem to help. But there are still people in management that need to go in order for the right things to happen.

    Pros

    There used to be a focus on culture, Leadership, D&I, etc.

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

    Pros

    I have been here less then a year, but it's obvious the perks at Vistaprint are only at the surface, things like food trucks, stocked kitchens.

    Cons

    If you care about career growth there is no opportunity, all the tech teams are slowly being outsourced to India, there is no room for growth in your own career path, compensation is much below what other teams in the organization are offering (compared to internal postings), as well as other companies.

    Constant layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Higher up management is quite disruptive in day to day operations. Stop investing in discount engineers and listen to your customers.

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

    Pros

    Great technology. Awesome facility with garage parking, gym, bar. Teams are empowered to make decisions, managers are around to assist in career planning etc, not leading teams. Good pay and benefits. Flexible work hours, can work remotely when necessary.

    Cons

    Very difficult to get promotion. Engineers who got hired at a lower title than their talent/experience are stuck. The only way to get a proper title is to get another job.

    Advice to Management

    Discover the superstars, they are the ones who make/keep things work, not the ones who talk a lot or shuffle code to fake contributions, promote them so they stay.
