    Pros

    Very organized, great communication between management and staff. Great benefits package, paid training, fun place to work.

    Cons

    Rising cost of products made it difficult for customers to afford products needed. Also, rising cost of shipping was preventing customers from using the protection offered on shipping their orders.

    Pros

    Good place to work. They take care of employees. You will be expected to put out real effort, but will be taken care of.

    Cons

    Some weekend work is expected, but they usually bring in breakfast or lunch.

    Advice to Management

    I rarely saw senior management, they pretty much kept to themselves.

    Pros

    I enjoyed working for Harland Clarke. Using Lean manufacturing methods, teaches employees to think in terms of continual process improvement designed to eliminate waste, keeping employees in a life-longer-learner mindset. Good benefits. The organization is diversifying in to areas of business other than printing. I miss the great people I worked with at Harland Clarke for so many years (facility closure/lay-off)

    Cons

    The printing division serves a declining market, resulting in plant closures each year to ensure the organization meets financial goals. Work will be consolidated into the remaining production plants. Employees working in these printing facilities may face lay-offs in the coming years.

    Advice to Management

    The production facility closure was handled in a respectful manner. The employees were treated fairly, and with compassion. Please continue this compassionate method when closing production facilities in the coming years.

    Pros

    This company offers several opportunities to volunteer in our community. They have a great Diversity and Inclusion team, as well as above average training.

    Cons

    No longer have a call center in Colorado. The closure did not offer paid transfers for anyone wanting to stay with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Make certain each employee is given the rate of pay they deserve.

    Pros

    The commitment of leadership to upholding core values and maintaining a culture of integrity made my two years with Harland Clarke some of the best in my career.

    Cons

    The closing of the facility where I worked and moving operations to another state cut short my time with this company. Advancement opportunities in my field were very limited.

    Pros

    Learned a lot! Encourage process improvements. Open to ideas. A very professional atmosphere. Enjoy working with the people there. Management knows what there doing. Loved most of the perks (for example tickets to games).

    Cons

    Worked long hours and pay did not compensate for it. Very strict on PTO even though your Salary even if you worked long hours during the other days of the week. This possibly depends on managers though.

    Advice to Management

    Management worked as much as possible with their employees but stress level at certain times during peak hours can sometimes cause people to not communicate well so possibly some ideas on how people can relieve this stress a bit better?
