    I worked at Cenveo full-time

    Pros

    If you are a sales associate with the organization (and are focused on development of your accounts, you can make a VERY good living. They have MANY different solutions to provide your client base in marketing communications. The income can be significant and commission plan that are uncapped.

    Cons

    There are distractions with changes that happen at the mid and senior level of management every few years that can be unsettling.

    Advice to Management

    Align some of the division to work more closely with one another. (Example: Labels and Packaging - Commercial and Publications - CROSS SELL without penalty

    I have been working at Cenveo full-time

    Pros

    For the most part if you do your job well nobody micro-manages.

    Cons

    Get what you want up front. They don't give raises and probably never will. Benefits are awful and cost a lot, especially family coverage.

    Advice to Management

    Keep you resume updated.

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

    Pros

    The pay was decent. Some of the people working there were decent. One or two of the managers were decent. One of the bosses was a decent fellow.

    Cons

    Many of the employees were not so nice. There were cliques throughout the company. If you weren't one of the "in" people, then you were out. Most of the managers were, well, typical of what one would expect from middle management types. My boss, who hired me, was a decent fellow. Then he was fired, which left me at the mercy of the other bosses.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on your promises. When you hire someone to do a job, and that person gives up a position to work for your company, don't change your mind 6 months later about that job and then lay him off. Offer him something else, or perhaps a position at one of the other facilities.

    I worked at Cenveo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Summer Fridays. Good people to work with. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    Dress code: why do non-client facing employees have to wear a suit? This is not a bank, or 1950. Micromanaging: HR will do laps to see who is in their desk at 5pm or 6pm, not taking into account working from home or any flexibility in schedule. No work/life balance. Poor management: Execs make decisions that contradict each other,do not communicate this to the employees, and do not make decisions with the employees' best interest in mind.

    Advice to Management

    Make employee morale a priority. If people are happy to be there, they will do better work, and not be watching the clock to leave to match your schedule

    Pros

    Some good people to work with.

    Cons

    No raises to hourly people, no 401 match, costly health insurance coverage. Constant personnel layoffs and shut downs to cut costs. Favoritism and politics rule the day.

    Advice to Management

    Stop borrowing money and buying up other companies. Put your money into what operations you have to improve your products to keep your customers happy and they will renew their contracts.

    Pros

    I had a job and the employees were awesome

    Cons

    Was told if I did not buy the stock I might lose my job. Made you work a whole week without pay and would not pay vacation when you left. Would not handle sexual harassment issues. Awesome co workers, but management cared only for themselves. Steve Williams is AWESOME though!

    Advice to Management

    have more empathy
