    Pros

    People are great to work with. Everyone for the most part gets along well. We work hard and play hard.

    Cons

    Mr. Burton needs to value his people. Salaries may be a liability; but they should be looked at as an asset. With out good people you do no have a good business.

  7. Company cannot keep good personnel. I like the people I work with but not who I work for.

    Pros

    Great co-workers who want and try to do a good job for clients.

    Cons

    No rewards for good work. Decreasing pay due to increases in benefits costs. Never had a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Give people raises. Have a matching 401K (even though most people could not contribute due to low pay).

    Pros

    Coworkers at the local level are talented and knowledgeable.

    There are a lot of long-term employees which fosters a sense of belonging.

    There are opportunities for learning and growth in the production areas, but not a lot of people leave, so growth is fairly slow.

    Cons

    Corporate HQ is out of touch with locations, and also out of touch with best practices to manage the business.

    Their focus seems to always be looking backward and trying to find someone to blame for not making their "numbers" instead of having a cohesive, long-range business plan.

    Advice to Management

    Use the collective wisdom of the employees who are closer to the day-to-day operations to inform your business decisions.

    Pros

    national platform to really focus on clients needs.

    Cons

    its all bits and pieces. No technology to speak of to actually do what they tell the market they can do. Its cheaper to print and outsource finishing services and fulfillment than to do it through the internal resources.

    Advice to Management

    They know what they need to do. They are too busy lining there own pockets and padding their positions.

    Pros

    The people you work with are wonderful. Some of the most hard working people (hourly employees) you will ever find.

    Cons

    Horrible management, no directives, lies, lies and more lies. If the company doesn't hit numbers for a quarter, they are making cuts in staff. I don't think they realize by cutting workforce to a bare minimum that they aren't going to meet their numbers. No work life balance at all.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and look at who is really running the company...the hourly people.

    Pros

    Honestly can't think of any. It's a corporate driven environment where the only thing that matters is money. Not customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction or pride in the products that are produced.

    Cons

    If you enjoy working at a company that refuses to provide the tools needed to succeed, go to work for Cenveo. The corporate management will continuously point out problems, but they never offer any solutions or provide support financially.

    Advice to Management

    Stop setting your employees up to fail. If Bob Burton is only concerned with lining his pockets and not in making the company profitable, he needs to sell his stocks and move along.
