Pros

Learned a lot about printing and copy production. Even tried my hand at some graphic design.

Cons

I had my print-side responsibilities plus the responsibilities of a cashier, salesman, receiving person, and janitor. Conversely, no cashier, manager or salesman could cover for Impress' four-man team.

Advice to Management

Get to work. Get on the floor and interact with the customers and your employees.

    very micromanaged with hitting sales numbers, stores are to stay under payroll when you already don't have workers

    Pros

    The environment is relatively easy-going and I've had the pleasure of working with and for some top-notch colleagues.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the "cons" outweigh the "pros". Simple tasks related to human resources, payroll or individual logistics require going through several people or departments to get anything done and can rarely be done on the intranet by the associate themselves. Being a new part of management personally, I can say with first-hand experience that the communication between individual managers and management teams is unorganized at best. Certain members of management are very good at their jobs and truly good employees but a few people can't carry an entire company.

    Advice to Management

    The management staff needs to work on becoming a cohesive unit that can function effectively as individual leaders and as a team rather than individual leaders that are never on the same page and subsequently waste time trying to decipher what needs done versus what has been accomplished.
