    Pros

    in the early years domino was such a great company to work for where everyone was listened to,

    Cons

    sadly it became the same as every other company, where junior management were more interested in graphs and charts, and pointless meetings, with the information going nowhere along with consultants who had no understanding of how to excite, and motivate people in the business, thank goodness i left,

    Advice to Management

    get rid of the team leader function, also get rid of the annualised hours, if people know what hours they are working, they can plan ahead,


  2. OK if your in the "in" crowd

    I have been working at Domino Printing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not a bad package overall, but not long term. Unofficially flexible with hours (if your in the right department/manager) Excellent canteen (sad when thats headline Pro!)

    Cons

    Top/Middle management heavy. Managers appear uneducated or uninterested in technology and its workings making it very difficult to develop. Some think its a university research company. Driven by paperwork and self validation. Limited to no career progression. Unbalanced benefits system. Instability in workplace due to "mood swing" department clear outs.

    Advice to Management

    Look at what you have and appreciate it. Progression from within not just employing inflated over paid roles that last only a few months causing a whirlwind of destruction. Less managers! (ratio is 2:1 in some departments).

    I worked at Domino Printing part-time

    Pros

    Good fun people to work with and relaxed management. There was also a great amount of flexibility in research and investigating any new ideas you may have.

    Cons

    Some highly incompetent members of staff. Company research quality is very low, and uneconomic. the company was also very disorganised and I felt that the research was going in the wrong direction.

    Advice to Management

    Higher better managers and invest in research for the future. Take more time over deciding the direction of the company.

    I worked at Domino Printing full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent manufacturing capability. They try new things when practical, and hold their employees accountable to cost, quality and time.

    Cons

    Top management - including the Board of Directors - is totally out of touch. They make subjective decisions without gleaning input from anyone, let alone top line management (of which I was one). Unfortunately, this lack of commitment affects new product development or fixing troubled product lines.

    Advice to Management

    That’s my point - they don’t accept advice. Oh, one time they did - I was invited to have lunch with the BOD and they asked me my opinion of the dessert.


  6. Great people within middle management and lower level positions, lack of senior leadership

    Pros

    The people on my team were great, as well in the office and the field. Good benefits received as well.

    Cons

    Lack of long term vision to grow the product portfolio. Disconnects between senior leadership and workers. Too conservative of an organization. Bad investments

    Advice to Management

    Be less conservative, and do a better job in developing the people, and do more than just delivering an overall number back to global HQ


  7. Domino has been a great company to work for. They work on developing their employees and promoting from within.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, strive on promoting from within. Company provides great benefits and support.

    Cons

    Stressful environment, working multiple jobs without compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Work more as a team and push for more support.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and work life balance. Overall a nice place to start your career.

    Cons

    Midsized company with a short term focus and limited growth opportunities. Small industry with many cash strapped customers that are unpleasant to deal with. Plan on moving on if you want to grow.


  9. Domino is an incredibly well run company, lacking the commercial tenacity required to take them to the next level

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    A very well run company from the board room down Excellent benefits package The opportunity for a good work life balance - if you choose to take it

    Cons

    A staid environment where people can stay for a long time without making real contribution. Pseudo culture of recognition and advancement of top performing individuals - people get frustrated and exit the business, leaving the organisation with less dynamic individuals who are happy (not everyone) to turn up and do what they have to.

    Advice to Management

    Become less risk averse and allow true stars of the organisation opportunity to lead and implement change rather than everyone having to follow strong top down direction. A perception is that management promotions happen in the main because they are 'yes' men.


  10. Good company spoilt by a strong "old boys network" feel and lack of opportunity

    Pros

    Great benefits package(s), Nice environment and some excellent members of staff. Bonuses (If paid CAN be good)

    Cons

    Complete lack of career progression unless your in "the network". Three changes of management in three years doesnt help (applies to my department). A lot of long serving staff members that are next to useless but so entrenched that they are immovable. Salary is "Non-negotiable" at time of employment and low. A blasé attitude to annual performance reviews leads to a global salary review structure (unless your management). Petty management that feel its fun to penalise certain members of staff come bonus time.

    Advice to Management

    Clear the dead wood and look at the good staff you have rather than parachute in short term senior staff!

    Pros

    Compensation is above average- six figures Work life balance

    Cons

    Corporate is challengedd in bringing together the various business units during times of rapid expansion of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on the channel implementation of the strategic plan in place so that outcomes are realistic and measured.
