    Pros

    Largest supplier to industry so that is a plus. Numerous plants across the US to service national accounts. Wide array of products.

    Cons

    Very negative industry reputation. Senior management often makes decisions that are not financially sound in this mature industry. Very little regard for employee well being.

    Just admit you only care about the stock price.

    Pros

    this reviewer works at Cadmus, a company purchased by Cenveo in 2007. At the time of the purchase, we saw major layoffs of long-term employees. We know very little about hte new parent company. Locally, Cadmus permits schedule variations of work times, including work at home. Certain departments are relatively "hands-off" on overseeing work.

    Cons

    some departments are definitely NOT hands-off, but are micro-managed by dept. leader. There is very little opportunity to move up on career ladder, and there is no encouragement from within the company. The parent company in Connecticut, a commercial print company, seems to have little appreciation for the kind of work we do here in Maryland (production of scholarly books and journals), and the emphasis has moved from quality of product to fastest and cheapest. Employees are treated, basically, in the same way. Pay raises average approx 1.5%, when given. No company contribution to 401K plans, and no incentive (monetary or not) to remain with Cenveo. A standing joke among employees is that one day we will be charged rent to work in our cubes....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out what your company in Columbia does (scholarly journals and books), recognize the hard-working people at the below management level.

    I worked at Cenveo

    Pros

    Excellent co-worker rapport and support. People really banded together to try to create a positive environment.

    Cons

    Tons of work. Way more than one person could conceivably do. Lots of unrealistic expectations and very little respect where vacation is concerned. I remember getting calls while on vacation about a meltdown at work. The environment was one of anxiety.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your workers are not firewood so work on tactics to avoid burn out.
