Employee Testimonials

Adam Lawless
North American Public Relations Lead

I’ve worked in a variety of environments throughout my career and 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. I see Vistaprint as an extended family, but we never forget that each team member has a life and family outside that needs as much attention and care. I look forward to coming to work each and every morning. But more importantly, I know that when I’m needed at home, I’m able to put my full attention where it’s needed.”

Andrew Holmes
Sr. Analyst

Vistaprint has a culture that allows me to feel psychologically safe to communicate honestly, I am enabled to share and receive feedback early and often. 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.

Sebastian Klapdor
Chief Data Officer

What stands out to me the most about Vistaprint is the culture of entrepreneurship, collaboration and putting the customer first. It feels like a $1.5bn startup with quick decision making, a fail-fast approach and agile teams that can pivot when something doesn’t work out.
