    I worked at Consolidated Graphics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The other LDP associates were awesome. Also, if they allow you to choose the sales route vs the operational route (an unscrupulous company president didn't even let me do and learn the things an LDP is supposed to), it's a fast track to get sales experience to eventually take elsewhere.

    Cons

    Printing is a dying industry. For the most part, the LDP program is a "they work you to death for little money, they get cheap management, you get experience". You may learn a lot and may get a lot of high level experience at a young age, but they put pressure on you and put you in high level positions without compensation because you are an LDP. And there's no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. LDP graduates get good positions but minimal raises leaving them underpaid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of working to consolidate a fractured industry into a massive company so you can sell it (I get it, I do), spend some time caring about your employees. There's. Reason there's a revolving door around this place. I know the company sold (the old owner and CEO was from Arthur Anderson and it showed, esp his accounting background), and I really hope the new company and management cares more about its people. It used to be all about the bottom line at the expense of its employees.
