    Above Average???!!!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSome really nice, talented people working there.

    ConsIn response to the review posted about "a great place to be if you are above average".

    Consider that review a warning. The fact is, most senior and mid managers really BELIEVE they are above average, when they are nothing more than narcissistic, manipulative, uncreative bores. Managers prey on the weak and are threatened by any real talent that might make them look bad. NEVER, EVER challenge a manager - they will make your life miserable.

    Before going into this company you should know a few things.

    Culture is old school corporate. Most managers and executives will say they have an "open door policy" but, in fact, they spend most of the day locked in their offices with doors shut. There is a "old boy's network" where comments and innuendoes are tossed around behind closed doors and occasionally right in the open during meetings.

    Politics among management is at its highest level with managers pitting their employees and business units against each other, scheming takeovers of each other's "territories".

    The HR group is worse than useless. They seem to be there just for hiring and firing - which tends to keep them very busy and oblivious to the multiple HR issues that are rife throughout the organization.

    Do your homework. Research this company, read the reviews. It may be the right place for you, but know what you are getting into.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice to HR and the Burtons (owners) - get more involved day to day and find out what your senior, mid level managers and VPs are actually doing.

    You should, absolutely, implement a 360 review program on ALL management and READ THE RESPONSES from your employees! Give your employees a forum to give feedback on their managers and VPs. You might be surprised and also learn why turnover is so high and moral is so low.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Consi dont have the greatest on confidence in the burton boys to right this ship.

    Advice to Senior Managementdress code in corporate hq is ridiculous; we're a printer not Goldman Sachs.

    Ready, fire, aim

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPlenty of opportunity for multiple projects.
    Never have to be concerned about being fully occupied with work.
    Diverse customer base.

    ConsExtreme lack of direction on senior management'part.
    Not enough time in the day to address changing priorities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter well thought out strategic plans, rather than reacting without fully understanding the implications of snap decisions. Ready, fire, aim!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    i have worked at this company for 7 years.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Jacksonville, FL

    Prospay is decent if you are an operator of any of the machinery. somewhat stable work.

    Consgetting bought out by a big corporation sucks. no raises in 7 years. upper management only care about numbers. if they are over budget, people are getting sent home and the rest of the workers still have to produce the same or more to get the numbers. This company doesn't care about their employees at all. Don't get into management, they will abuse you. when they are done they will kick you to the curb.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsk yourself WHY is everyone leaving? UPPER MANAGEMENT!!!!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pluses and Minuses are Both to be Had..

    Manufacturing (Current Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsWork is usually quite steady and in suffient amounts, which allow most people full-time hours and also some overtime.

    ConsThere's an utter lack of communication from upper management. Employees should know and be shown any corporate progress as it happens. Instead, we are NEVER given any info concerning company plans, goals or direction. Nothing is ever posted for us to read.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhy should we have to do online searches to find out what we need to know?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Former employee--one of many to be laid off!

    Production Coordinator (Former Employee)
    Richmond, VA

    ProsThe salaries are great if you are there for awhile. Enjoyed the job itself, loved the people other than management.

    ConsDo the work of many and get no recognition. Loyality means nothing. Bottom dollar means everything. No raises.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize how hard everyone works so you can keep your doors open. I doubt they will be for long.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Everybody works REALLY hard here

    General Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsEverybody works REALLY hard here. The underdogs are wonderful people and a great support group.

    ConsToo much workload, long hours, no raises for over 6 years, but pay cuts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA simple "thank you" and act of kindness and understanding now and then will help the environment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Was a great place to work until bought out by Cenveo

    Prepress Specialist (Former Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    ProsMany talented people work here, and all are eager to help each other. There was minimal co-worker drama when I worked at Cadmus

    ConsOwned by Cenveo whose management team is bent on plundering any available asset of the company to fill the owners' pockets. Since Cenveo took over, there have been no raises, benefits have been cut dramatically and out-of-pocket costs have skyrocketed. Headcount has been decimated, and working hours are cut without notice.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good people at department level. Overall management is poor, no effort to improve.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Columbia, MD

    ProsIndependent work is encouraged. Flexible about work-at-home/work-at-site.

    ConsCompany (publishing services section) is not pursuing new business. Losing contracts, losing people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Do not apply for this job!

    Journal Production Manager (Former Employee)
    Columbia, MD

    ProsThe location is fairly good.

    ConsThe are more downsides than I can shake a stick at. I was expected to know everything about the company within a week, which is not realistic. My computer crashed at least three times per week. I was screamed at daily for events that were beyond my control.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe realistic! A person cannot know the politics of a company within a week. Drop the job shadowing technique altogether because it streses out the former employee and gives the new employee way too much information at once.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
