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.

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.
