If you're on the fence, don't do it.

Non-management (Current Employee)
Park Ridge, IL

I have been working at Cenveo full-time for more than 3 years

Pros-There are a lot of decent people that can make the days bearable.
-It's easy to figure out the pros because there are so few.

Cons-Communication is non-existent (and poor when there is communication)
-Work/life balance is terrible; I have regularly felt "set up to fail" with the volume of work and the amount of time in the day
-Pay freeze for several years - except the cost of benefits keep going up
-Benefits package is terrible - no 401k match, the only benefit paid-for by the company is a small life insurance policy
-No performance review structure (except when you perform poorly and they want to fire you). If you do happen to get a performance review, start worrying and find a new job.
-Business plans change frequently and are not communicated in a timely manner. Not to mention all the work that can go into building and analyzing plans just to find out that the plan has changed once you present your findings.
-Cash flow is negative and/or falsely padded by withholding payments to suppliers and adding to the mountain of debt

Advice to Senior ManagementStop taking this drowning company so seriously: it's a paper company and the year is 2014.

Don't take the low stock price so personally - there's a reason it's not $20/sh.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Unsatisfactory leadership and direction

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Cenveo full-time for more than 8 years

ProsCenveo offers a platform of different services to it's customers

Cons- upper management uses a technique of striking fear into its employees to get what it wants.
- upper management gave all employees a 10% pay deduction years back and has yet to increase pay back to where it once was
- upper management does not understand all of the services it offers
- production is very lean; management not hiring to help the overworked employees

Advice to Senior Managementfigure it out

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

i have worked at this company for 7 years.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Jacksonville, FL

I have been working at Cenveo full-time for more than 10 years

Prospay is decent if you are an operator of any of the machinery. somewhat stable work.

Consgetting bought out by a big corporation sucks. no raises in 7 years. upper management only care about numbers. if they are over budget, people are getting sent home and the rest of the workers still have to produce the same or more to get the numbers. This company doesn't care about their employees at all. Don't get into management, they will abuse you. when they are done they will kick you to the curb.

Advice to Senior ManagementAsk yourself WHY is everyone leaving? UPPER MANAGEMENT!!!!!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pluses and Minuses are Both to be Had..

Manufacturing (Current Employee)
Cleveland, OH

I have been working at Cenveo full-time for more than 10 years

ProsWork is usually quite steady and in suffient amounts, which allow most people full-time hours and also some overtime.

ConsThere's an utter lack of communication from upper management. Employees should know and be shown any corporate progress as it happens. Instead, we are NEVER given any info concerning company plans, goals or direction. Nothing is ever posted for us to read.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhy should we have to do online searches to find out what we need to know?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

help management raise the stock price

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Cenveo

Prosyou can find good people in the lower hierarchy who are stuck there. friending them can help make the job bearable for a bit.

Consmanagement is abusive, you will get used to it like a bad relationship with a spouse.

Advice to Senior ManagementJust admit you only care about the stock price.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Very little communication with employees. Management not known for their handling of issues

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Cenveo

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
