    I have been working at Vistaprint full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, plenty of paid time off--3 weeks to start, and up to 4 weeks after 5 year tenure, 4 floating holidays yearly. As a Thank You for staying with the company every 5 years, you also receive an additional take-all-at-once month off called a Vistabreak.

    Cons

    At least on my team, we are not having much upward growth. Everyone is stuck with their role. In the past 5 years, team members roles grew immensely, but now have slowed down.

    I worked at Vistaprint part-time

    Pros

    They hire diversely, as demonstrated by omegas such as myself
    They do not notice if you steal from them
    Occasionally they feed employees (i.e. vending machines are on the premises)
    Supported my decision to leave and be a stay-home omega

    Cons

    Poor management
    Made me work while in heat - I should be with my alpha
    Can include long hours
    Chicken cruelty

    Advice to Management

    When my alpha picks a fight with you, please do not engage
    Allow longer maternity leave
    Change your name and direction of the company
    Unaffiliate with Webs; they are trash

    Pros

    Very smart people to work with.
    The company has a very nurturing culture and so it is a great place to start right out of college.
    The company and people, respect and encourage better work-life balance.

    Cons

    There were a lot of re-orgs and changes trying to figure out the Cimpress vs Vistaprint positioning. Also, the changes have resulted in some unnecessary overhead.

    Unending stream of work, no sitting around. Teams work with a coordinated sense of urgency. Everybody is on the same page, all the time, as projects move forward to completion without delay or bumps. The pace is terrific for someone like myself who thrives on progress.

    A PC computer program versus Apple. Apple would be a better choice for a creative department.

    Advice to Management

    Switch to Apple Products and software to increase the productivity of the Creative Department

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

    Pros

    Smart people, challenging problems, very fast paced environment. I came in right out of college and I built a great skill set as a marketing analyst. The people are very friendly, willing to help and you'll be able to develop quickly.

    Cons

    Promotions and ratings are pretty subjective and the criteria keep changing over time. Many management shifts that disrupt teams, the workflow and bring down morale.

    Advice to Management

    Keep people motivated with more transparent promotion systems and less frequent changes in management.
