    Pros

    Interesting work and benefits. Reputable company

    Cons

    It really is a back stabbing culture and back stabbing to get ahead is rewarded. If you are talented and smart you won't necessarily get anywhere unless you're sneaky and political. It's too bad because a lot of great honest people have left because of this. I can honestly say that there is no reason to work here anymore. There are far better companies in the area where people are rewarded for good work and not just for who they are or who they are kissing up to.

    Advice to Management

    The culture is the main problem. Until it's acknowledged you'll have a hard time keeping talent. A lot of people would have stayed and have left because of this.

    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.
