It was very good in the early years (Till 2003) but last few years were pretty bumpy

Manager Technical Services (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

ProsMostly people doesn't want to leave. Bowne family thing was very strong. Lots of learning opprtunities. Free parking, good benifits. I had some excellet bosses.

ConsVery conservative about new technology. Field I.T. had very little say in the matters. Outsourcing I.T. was a very hasty decision. Other employees were not happy by this moves.

Advice to Senior ManagementThis was a specialized business model. And earlier management were very close to the employees. But the new management has a disconnect with low level employees. If they bring back previous good managers and start from basic, it could turn out to be a very good company again.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
