    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Recruiters were amazing at planning events for Interns
    People were great to work with, usually very helpful
    Laid back, flexible with hours

    Cons

    Projects were very hit or miss (some were great, some were not so great)
    Manager was not very helpful, very little feedback until the end
    Honestly felt lost for most of my internship

    Advice to Management

    As someone's first internship experience, I would have liked more direction, more direct feedback. It was hard to know what I was doing wrong until told very bluntly at the very end.

    I have been working at Vistaprint full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was a campus hire and found the marketing dept. at Vistaprint is a great early career opportunity. Young team members are given real responsibility early on and make contributions. It is a great learning environment with generally good managers and opportunities to move up or around to other specialties.
    Vistaprint offers lots of perks: free shuttle, free food truck days, gym and on-site classes, 401K matching, in-house massage, mani/pedi and dry-cleaning. Marketing dept. is generally 9-5 with good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Frequent re-orgs (every 1-2 years)
    New title structure rolled out by HR makes title change promotions very limited but pay raises are more frequent but lower %
    Difficulties in measuring marketing goals which slows down innovation.

    Smart people, great culture and amazing perks. Lots of opportunities to learn and grow. Though things vary between teams, generally a very flexible place and good work-life balance.

    Cons

    The location - it is quite far off from the city. Though there are public/free commute options. Quite a few changes / re-org lately.

    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.
