    I worked at Consolidated Graphics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Experience in several departments -Vacation days given up front -Other LDPs are cool people -Pretty good mentor program -

    Cons

    -Expected to work 10 hour days with no overtime pay -High turnover because people find better opportunities -Cookie cutter offers and raises no matter how well you perform roughly 3-4% -Awful health insurance and dental insurance options -Little respect from management

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people! Reward people for exceptional work. There is no reason to work yourself to death for no reward.

    TSSG - Cheap company - no benefits, pay below industry averages, poor management, old applications, on-call assignments.

    I have been working at Consolidated Graphics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are plenty of strip clubs in close vicinity.

    Cons

    * No 401(k) match * Expensive benefits ~ $400 for a single person per month * Pay below industry averages * No pay increases. Not even to compensate for inflation * On-call over the weekend * High turnover in every department and at all levels. Best employees leave in less than a year * Continuously adding to job duties * Old computer / cell equipment * Old applications that do not work with the latest IE browser. Continuously downgrade users' browsers as a workaround * No training * No SOPs * Backstabbing from managers * Managers have online degrees / certifications * Just acquired by RR Donnelley ... An equally awful company

    Advice to Management

    Hire good and knowledgeable managers and employees. Pay higher salaries and provide benefits ... Yeah right, will never happen.

    Pros

    There are no pros to share.

    Cons

    The office I worked in was very negative atmosphere and lacked encouragement. Along that there was a lack of communication and lack of employee tree structure. No chance of moving up just laterally.

    Advice to Management

    Get a President that cares about his employees not just about himself and the profits.

    Pros

    If you want to be president of a print shop, there isn't a better way to go. You will learn a lot, although it may be trial by fire.

    Cons

    Compensation is poor to fair, benefits are poor. You really have to take your medicine before you reap the rewards of your hard work

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who genuinely have the goal to run a print shop or revamp the program.
