I worked at Diamond Comic full-time

Pros

Diamond is loyal to those who fit the company mold. They are compassionate to all in times of difficulty.

Cons

Negative, discouraging overall environment at Home Office fostered by both employees and management. Very low ceiling for advancement, with next to zero mentoring effort applied.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Begin to mentor your replacements and prepare to step aside. Your company is stagnant and your long tenure is a big part of the reason why.

    I have been working at Diamond Comic

    Pros

    It is a job, helps pay the bill, (very little help)

    Cons

    Have worked there since Oct. 2010,no set start time, no set hours, there is no organization. Management acts like everyday is a new challenge, when nothing really every changes. Orders that need to go out that day by 6 pm or usually not printed until after 3 pm. Time is often not given for orders to be picked, before they are reprinted again, which means double picks are being done. Supervisors and leads do nothing but play and talk all day. There is very little communication with the workers. Nothing is followed through. There is very little training and no follow-up. There is a lot of flirting going on, and very little done about it. If your in good with a Supervisor or leads,then you can stand and talk and get away with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find someone that actually knows how to run a Distribution Center. Have a cut off time for customers to place orders that need to go out same day. Train your workers, and follow up on that training.

    I worked at Diamond Comic

    Pros

    Flexiable when time off was needed
    Laid back work environment
    Management ok when it comes to subordinate work relationships depending on dept

    Cons

    Pay was not good vs others with my education/exper in similiar positions in other companies
    No room for advancement because most positions have people in them for years not looking to move out of them
    Not economic proof as indicated in one of the reviews laid off in a second wave off mass lay offs in 2009
    Benefits were scaled back like 401K even free comics were cut off
    Not loyal to employees so don't get too comfortable
    Inter-department interaction can be daunting
    No employee feedback to management in terms of surveys etc we get graded but we can't grade them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like you would like to treated. Be straight with them!
