    Pros

    Great people, great service. Last man standing in our industry. People with drive and talent, quickly get moved to the top.

    Cons

    You need to be above average to make it here. The weak get weeded out quickly. People who complain tend to get left behind. Work hours tend to be long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing for growth

    Pros

    Good pay and good hrs

    Cons

    Sorry benefits, no compassion with people. Hardly no management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to pay more attention to the individuals you have hired or put in these positions to run your plants.

    Do not care about employees, do not suggest you work for them.

    I have been working at Cenveo

    Pros

    None, notta, nothing good to say about them. I don't know how they can sleep at night for what they are doing to 140 people.

    Cons

    Well they bought us 8 months ago, just signed a 3 yr. Deal. Now closing the doors. We were their biggest rival, now we have no jobs. People have been here for 25-30 yrs. And are getting nothing for it. They should be ashamed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management sucks, they do not care about workers or their families. Just about personal greed. Next time you close a plant , maybe give the workers a severance package, specially the ones that have been there for many yrs.

    Great people to work with, some of the best in the industry,

    Put more money into people's salaries, continuous staff development and education, and improvement of working conditions.

    I have been working at Cenveo full-time (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 ManagementAdvice

    Stop 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.

    Pros

    Cenveo 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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    getting 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 ManagementAdvice

    Ask yourself WHY is everyone leaving? UPPER MANAGEMENT!!!!!!

    Pros

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

    Cons

    There'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 ManagementAdvice

    Why should we have to do online searches to find out what we need to know?
