    I have been working at ABC Imaging full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The coworkers are generally great. It's good industry experience. and if you get lucky with your placement the clients are wonderful

    Cons

    upper and middle management are oblivious, and unfit to lead. they are about 50% of where the stress comes from. you are often underequipped and undertrained and expected to handle situations beyond your scope. very little chance of raises or bonuses, and if you manage to get a raise you'd be luck to get 5%

    Advice to Management

    offer slightly better salaries and overtime, you'd be amazed how much better the workers are when they feel appreciated.

    I have been working at ABC Imaging full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some amazingly nice people who work here and are very, very helpful. A few guys in IT, some of the women in customer service positions, a few of the graphics people are just terribly good folks who work for an awful company.

    Cons

    The owner is a tyrant. He is disrespectful, abusive, rude and has no regard for anyone. It's all about image, dollars and his ego. The way he treats his employees has a severe trickle-down effect. Every person in a position of power treats their subordinates terribly. They call each other names, there's a lot of backstabbing and underhanded shadiness. They treat women like dirt, I'm not sure if it's due to the industry being male dominated or the fact that many of the people at ABC coming from countries where women are not treated like humans but it's not okay. There's no performance reviews, no raises, the benefits are awful. There's a roach infestation and nobody cares. They shrug it off like it's normal. There's a lot of nepotism as many of the employees are related, married to each other or from the same country. The gossiping is horrendous. Everyone is playing telephone and by the time the story gets to you it sounds like one of Aesop's fables. The clients treat the employees like trash because they feel empowered to do so by management. The equipment is ancient and they're always cutting corners to get things done instead of just purchasing new equipment. And instead of implementing training programs or hiring quality applicants, they just buy a failing company and cite THEIR accomplishments as ABC's. You will be overworked, not appreciated and underpaid. Overall this place is just awful. Very awful.

    Advice to Management

    Take a few management classes. You are the reason the turnover rate is SO high.

    Pros

    Coworkers are nice people, very hardworking.

    Cons

    There is perhaps 2 or 3 people with real vision. The owner of the company is stubborn. He has no leadership skills. The space is a mess.

    I worked at ABC Imaging full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are literally none. I am not a person who usually writes reviews but this company needs to be put on blast.

    Cons

    Terrible pay. Terrible morale. The owner is a maniac and an awful person. They treat women terribly. Something very fishy going on in the company. Upper management is a train wreck. No room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    No advice because they would never take it.

    Pros

    The only pro is having a paycheck. If you're lucky, the people you work with might be nice. Two words left.

    Cons

    There is a lot of distrust among the departments and levels of management. There are people put in place to snitch on fellow employees. Employees are treated with no respect. Management are constantly yelling at employees in front of colleagues and customers. Employees are fired without warning and replaced with someone willing to do the same job for ~$10/hour. One location has a leaky roof(rains on workstations and machines), no reliable heating or AC, and extremely poor restroom/dining conditions. Rats, mice, roaches, and wasps are very common. Some employees have been with the company for many years and have never received a raise. The pay is very low and not even remotely close to industry standards. Many of us believe our time sheets/paychecks are being tampered. Each paycheck is very inconsistent, despite having a regular schedule. Be prepared to do the same job/task over again because mistakes are constantly made in all departments(sales/csr/design/printing). Hiring quality employees does not seem to be a priority. Your job description means nothing. You will be doing whatever they want you to do. You will be overworked. There is no question about that. Benefits and incentive are basically nonexistent. There are benefits, but you will likely use most of your earnings to pay for them. The only thing I receive from the company besides my paycheck is the $30 dollar Safeway gift card that are handed out at Thanksgiving. Every machine is old, in poor condition, and outputs inferior quality prints. Most of the software is very old(over a decade in some cases). PC/Mac workstations are also mostly obsolete. I could go on, but I think you get it by now.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees. Pay them better(at least a livable income). Give them better resources. Change the culture of distrust and disrespect. Maybe you wouldn't have so many employees leaving.

    Pros

    None. A steady low income, while you look for something better.

    Cons

    The management doesn't care about you as a person. For them, you are just a robot. Work life balance doesn't exist in their mind. Overtime=you will not receive one. My supervisor didn't have a backbone. He did whatever his boss told him to do. Nepotism is rampant and so is unnecessary office politics and backbiting. There is no room to grow. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy.

    Advice to Management

    None.There is no point in suggesting anything to them. They are not going to listen what you have to say.

    Pros

    IF you are lucky and have good direct coworkers, you can get by. That will only make being at ABC bearable, not good by any means.

    Cons

    Upper management will work you to the bone and toss you out without a second thought. You will be asked to do things outside of your job description and then will be reprimanded when you do it wrong or slowly. Hours and pay are inconsistent and you constantly feel like there's something fishy going on with your paycheck, but of course they don't answer anything directly enough for you to figure it out. Pay also does not correspond to the amount of work you will do. They would rather get bad work quickly and cheaply, then wait or pay for quality work. No room for growth at all. Upwards movement is impossible. They would rather get rid of you and get a cheap, entry level employee than pay more and promote. If you don't know what a micromanaged (and poorly micromanaged, at that) company looks like-- ABC is the best example. CEO needs everything run by him and if it does not meet a "certain standard of excellence" (vague way of saying he can choose to not accept something for no reason) you could get fired. CEO will also scream and scream and scream all day and all night at whoever is in his way. No rhyme or reason, just screaming.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees more, and maybe they would stick around.

    having a job while you look for another job. Having a paycheck. no other pros I can think of.

    Cons

    The management, they pay, the healthcare, the opportunities, the stress, the owner, the suckups

    Advice to Management

    why bother they won't listen. It's like a company run by Charlie Manson

    Pros

    Extremely friendly group of people. Those who are not very friendly are few-and-far-between, but those who are genuinely nice and respectful are a mass majority. Definitely a great environment.

    Cons

    The parking in the area is a minimum of $10 for an early bird special (In before 7 or 9 usually), and the parking pass for the company costs $189/mo. So needless to say, you can expect to pay a pretty penny if you plan on driving here. And the traffic is horrendous.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, and ensure that the working environment stays an enjoyable one. The workload here is too heavy to be also accompanied by a stressful work place. Keep your employee's in a positive atmosphere, and they will keep pushing strong for you. A little praise from time-to-time can go a long way.
