    I have been working at Cenveo full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers at the local level are talented and knowledgeable.

    There are a lot of long-term employees which fosters a sense of belonging.

    There are opportunities for learning and growth in the production areas, but not a lot of people leave, so growth is fairly slow.

    Cons

    Corporate HQ is out of touch with locations, and also out of touch with best practices to manage the business.

    Their focus seems to always be looking backward and trying to find someone to blame for not making their "numbers" instead of having a cohesive, long-range business plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use the collective wisdom of the employees who are closer to the day-to-day operations to inform your business decisions.

    I have been working at Cenveo

    Pros

    If you land a big account you can make a lot of money (until Mgmt changes its mind and takes it away)

    Cons

    Mgmt is too busy answering to HQ to spend time with line employees
    Sr. Mgmt treats everyone like a number
    Mgmt makes promises and doesn't deliver including pay and commissions
    Benefits are very expensive and not good
    10% pay cut for everyone in 2009. 12.5% commission cut for sales in 2015

    I have been working at Cenveo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some lower management has been wonderful, and the work is steady for the most part. Non-office personnel are really great people to work with. Laid-back environment.

    Cons

    Training is promised and then doesn't happen. Management keeps us in the dark, upper management and a lot of the office staff are incredibly stuck-up. Major personality conflicts abound. Trenched in staff is incredibly adverse to change. Big, big communications problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your people without insulting our intelligence. Start dealing with the inter-personal problems. Just start communicating.

    I worked at Cenveo full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Shift work, 3 days on, 4 days off. I learned a lot about the whole printing process.

    Cons

    Patriarchal environment touting 'family values' but was farthest from the truth. Sweat shop atmosphere. Every minute of your day had to be accounted for and explained in minute detail which was fine on busy days, but murder on the slow days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Laying off the employees with the most education and experience is dumbing-down your business.

    I have been working at Cenveo full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers are professional and do everything they can to get the job done.

    Cons

    Managers are protected from corporate policies. In other words, they can manage in any way they want, even though it takes the company down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. They know where the problems lie. Follow through on the issues they bring to your attention. It is hard enough to have the courage to point out an issue. No one would bother if the issue was not valid. Lack of follow through shows you have less interest in building a strong company than your employees.

    I worked at Cenveo full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    None, there is no work-life balance; however, in terms of benefits, the insurance was nice as it relates to the offerings, and employee contribution.

    Cons

    This company is choked by corporate mandates...nothing is accomplished without intervention by the corporate office. Staff are not empowered or properly compensated yet are expected to work fifty plus hours per week. The older/hourly worker try to sabotage the salaried employees and the lack of proper technology limits productivity

    I worked at Cenveo

    Pros

    Good pay..large corporation, fairly steady work, most immediate supervisors have good people skills. Plant kept up to most stringent OSHA standards.

    Cons

    Plant closures to cut costs, Lack of supervision accountability, rude HR people who also make derogatory and slanderous comments. Not to mention in the envelope or folding end of business is a dying industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to work with, your people. So they actually feel like people, and not like another piece of machinery in your possession
