An Insider's view of Vistaprint

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I’ve always been told that having work-life balance was a priority. Not until coming to Vistaprint have I seen this ideology followed through on and put into practice so effectively and passionately with ample paid time off and work-from-home opportunities.

Every day brings new opportunities to collaborate with colleagues around the world. Technology enables us to overcome the distance - it’s not uncommon to see monitors with multiple locations dialed in, collaborating through shared documents and smart boards. Not only are we solving complex problems but we are growing and learning from each other.

With regular touch bases with my manager, I can control my development, finding opportunities to take on projects that challenge me to work on areas of improvement or/and showcasing my strengths.
