    I worked at Cenveo

    Pros

    Good pay..large corporation, fairly steady work, most immediate supervisors have good people skills. Plant kept up to most stringent OSHA standards.

    Cons

    Plant closures to cut costs, Lack of supervision accountability, rude HR people who also make derogatory and slanderous comments. Not to mention in the envelope or folding end of business is a dying industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to work with, your people. So they actually feel like people, and not like another piece of machinery in your possession

    Extreme lack of direction on senior management'part.
    Not enough time in the day to address changing priorities.

    Better well thought out strategic plans, rather than reacting without fully understanding the implications of snap decisions. Ready, fire, aim!!

    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

    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.

    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.
