    I worked at General Binding Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    good pay, good benefits, Managers care and try to be helpful. Industry leader with a good reptuation.

    Cons

    Economic pressure forced company to outsource manufacturing to Asia, Accounting Dept to India and others. Many staff reductions 2010 thru 2012. Slow lead times for product shipping from Asia. Many companies no longer order binders or laminate. New UV print technology reduces the need for laminate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be realistic about the marketplace and shrinkage. Develop lower cost solutions. Offer faster credits for defective products. Too much data entry for a sales position will reduce sales.
