Pros

Learned a lot about systems and corporate culture at Bowne. Great mentoring from my direct supervisor. Benefits were good, pay OK, plenty of opportunity for overtime, good group of co-workers.

Cons

Career growth is difficult. A larger company, you have to wait your turn on line for promotion. Also, it helps to be part of a "crew." There are several cliques that are led by upper and middle managers. Those crews always favor their own when it comes to promotion.

    Pros

    Bowne had a generally good work environment. Most co-workers were fine; some were excellent at their jobs and had been with the company 20-plus years. The pay was very good.

    Cons

    Management let the slackers get away with murder. My immediate supervisor had a horribly entitled attitude, and was quite "clique-ish" with a couple of my co-workers which made my immediate environment sometimes unpleasant.
    In 2008 most of the staff was laid off because of outsourcing, automation, and financial problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bowne has been taken over by another company. I would advise them to hire supervisors who pay attention to what is going on around them.
