Ehh

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsThere are definitely great perks for working here, such as industry events, free wine, restaurant openings, and much more. They certainly support a good balance of work/personal life.

ConsUpper management has zero idea what is important to the functionality and success of the company. Being that it is family ran, they are more interested in immediately lining their pockets, rather having an innovative approach to the changing print market. If they had a more innovative approach, this company would be much more successful and profitable, then they are. Also, zero morale among employees, based upon low wages, and awful corporate culture.

Advice to Senior ManagementInnovation and forward thinking would help to bring this company into the future. If they continue on the path of the last 25 years, there is really no hope.
