Free coffee & snacks; backbiting and unprofessional behavior
Marketing (Former Employee), Lexington, MAOctober 26, 2013
Pros: free lunches every 2 weeks (food trucks)
Cons: lack of work/life balance; unprofessional behavior
Sure it seems great environment at first with free snacks/coffee, occasional free food truck lunches (Lexington) and an impressive compensation package/bonus. But after the honeymoon is over, you quickly realize that everyone is in it for themselves, work/life balance doesn't exist (most employees work at night) and support from managers is fleeting. – more... If you enjoy backbiting, gossip and unprofessional behavior, then this is the right environment for you. If not, do yourself a favor and stay away from this toxic workplace. You'll either be fired or quit within a year. – less

The environment is attractive, but there's a great deal of work to get done. Pressure to work late too.

No work/life balance
Anonymous (Current Employee), LexingtonFebruary 25, 2013
Pros: free beer
Cons: no work/life balance. cut-throat environment
I went to Vistaprint with high hopes. I left a wonderful company and a great position for slightly higher pay here and I've regretted it terribly. Having worked here over a year, I have found it to be a very cut-throat workplace with no regard for employees' personal lives. I have been enrolled in a Masters program and have had to take two semesters – more... off because the workload at Vistprint is relentless. It is expected that employees regularly work their full day and then jump back on the computer at night to show they are putting in the extra effort. But, the extra effort is invasive of my personal life. Its infuriating contstantly having senior managers requesting information on Saturdays and Sundays. Working here is a new form of anxiety that I have never experienced before, nor will I again. Luckily, I am getting ready to leave. Talking with former employees of Vistaprint - I can hardly wait for the sigh of relief they've noted when giving notice! – less

Challenging environment with high turnover
Finance (Former Employee), Lexington, MAJanuary 19, 2013
Pros: free lunch, can negotiate big compensation
Cons: lack of leadership, terrible work/life balance
Good growth Company, but Finance is a sweat shop with lack of decision making and poor leadership. In general the people are pretty good, but no one stays. Turnover is extremely high, part of the reason so many jobs are open. Plenty of room to negotiate salary and bonus, the Company will overpay. They are liberal with sign on bonuses but don't expect – more... to be rewarded once you are in the door. Despite the claims, bonuses don't exceed 100%, so don't believe the hype that you have significant upside.

Finance is a reporting function only, there is zero strategic partnership. Expect to work a significant number of hours just trying to get the basics done. Good opportunity to come in for a year or two and then jump ship for something bigger.

Free lunches are nice along with free drinks, but I'd rather have a meaningful job and work normal hours than to get a couple of perks, work 80 hours and have a mind numbing job. – less

Global Informational Systems Director/IT Director (Former Employee), Lexington, MAJanuary 11, 2013
Great culture - Management values employee base. Talented base of Technical employees. Hardest part of the job, although I didn't mind it, was the off-hours activities supporting an e-commerce site

Care/Sales Supervisor (Current Employee), Montego Bay, JamaicaSeptember 17, 2013
Pros: free beverages, gym, recreational room
Cons: low confidentiality, inconsistent communication, limited ability to grow to different company locations, non competitive salary for middle managers and entry level staff
The company has a open door policy which allows easy contact to different levels of management. It consistently aims to increase the knowledge of its employees. Coworkers are fun and aim to create friendships for life. The job can become montonous and limits the ability for ingenuity. The comradry of the people wh work there, and the numerous parties, – more... keep you motivated to work for a while. – less

Terrific, Hardworking Colleagues BUT...
Supplier Quality Manager (Former Employee), Winterthur, SwitzerlandAugust 8, 2013
Pros: terrific pay, great colleagues, regular networking sessions
Cons: management not adhering to corporate values, unclear strategy, managers tend to pitch former experience too much
I resigned from a wonderful job in a great company to join Vistaprint only to leave after less than a year. Vistaprint reels you in with a terrific compensation package, an attractive performance bonus scheme, and other perks, like constant overseas travels and frequent networking activities outside of office hours. After biting the bait, I realized – more... I was surrounded by really terrific colleagues who knows what they are doing, and are clearly best in class in whatever they're doing. However, the fairy tale ends there. I was unfortunate to have a manager who seemed to have a work ethic that leaves much to be desired for. He was constantly missing meetings, was always late for work (or didn't even show up in the office!) on Mondays and Fridays, and was constantly on the roam in the office clueing in on the latest workplace gossip. Worst of all, he was even using material from his former employers and passing them off as his own without bothering to remove the names of his former companies from said documents. In addition, my manager had extreme difficulties reporting out bad numbers in management meetings and was constantly looking for ways to "sweeten" figures. On top of it all, I was not given the opportunity my job as my manager was eventually the one taking the overseas trips to visit suppliers. And oh... I never got to see meeting reports out of those visits. :-)

In the end, I decided to leave the company, and ended up regretting having joined Vistaprint in the first place. In hindsight, it was a valuable lesson: not everything is all about money and bonuses. Being happy in your job has a lot to do whether you and ypur manager share the same values, and in this case, for me at least, it wasn't. – less

Anyone could loose their job at any time
- (Former Employee), BarcelonaMarch 8, 2013
Pros: free lunch
In Vistaprint you can get fired at any time and it happens a lot. The directors seem to be replaced several times a year and other employees just end up missing. Everyone is trying to save their own back. There are almost as many managers as employees and the endless hierarchy makes it impossible for employees to reach their full potential or have any – more... say about the work. The less initiative you take and the less proactive you are the better. The moment you become visible you are a threat and you may get kicked out.

In the beginning it seemed like a great place to work but as time went on it became clear that there was no security there. Saying the wrong thing or talking to the wrong person could get you in trouble. – less
