    I worked at Vistaprint (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefit. Nice perks. Smart people some of which has no work ethics and hard to deal with.

    Cons

    There are too many changes in a short period of time. people lose their jobs due to rapid and continuous changes.
    too much hypocrisy. No transparency. Lay off of considerate number of people few times a year.
    Employees among some teams bully each other in order to climb the ladder faster. No privacy in the office space. If you stay there just to get stabbed in the back.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes to what is going on in this daycare.

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

    Pros

    - Well structured environment with lots of formal processes that are great for learning about the industry.
    - Marketing team has many subsets of departments that allows for specialization & depth of knowledge; also helpful for cross-team projects to have hyper-specialized individuals.
    - Clear hierarchy & career progression
    - Corporate, but still fun with a great culture
    - Thorough interviews which lend well to cultivating a company comprised of talented & smart individuals

    Cons

    - At a more formal company, there is more risk of being pigeonholed as a subject matter expert, and less opportunity for management development
    - While formal processes are great to track and plan, they can be frustrating when trying to move projects along quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee retention and financial benefits for current employees in addition to making the company a fun place to work.
