Great pay, lousy management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

ProsBowne 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.

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