Pros

Good pay, good benefits, employees treated well. small company feel

Overall, I had a positive experience with the company, wish they weren't acquired

Cons

Politics, Management did not always recognize and deal with issues of poor performance. Towards the end of the company there were a lot of cut backs and layoffs which lead to a decline in employee morale.

Advice to Management

Because the company is now owned by RR Donnelly, there is really not a whole lot to say. I wish them well

    Clueless about technology and mediocrity is the norm.

    Pros

    Large company
    Ok pay
    Time off

    Cons

    No matching on 401k
    Pension plan is almost nothing
    Not competitive on IT salaries

    Advice to Management

    Hire a transformation and strategy consulting firm. Transition legacy skilled employees into support and promote mainstream skilled employees. Start a consulting practice as a new revenue stream and to create stickiness with clients. Invest in IT technologies that create efficiencies and develop a roadmap for near term and 5 years out. Finally own the data, mine the data, and sell the BI to the world as a new revenue stream.

  2. Previously Bowne, but new company ownership is fine.

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code and comfortable work enviroment. Responsibility and decision-making is shared at the employee level. Not difficult to initiate improvements. It is also a a good location for my commute.

    Cons

    Low level management needs to have more power to get technical issues resolved for employees. Old equipment/software and access issues - some due to the Bowne to Donnelley transition - make it difficult to be efficient in training contract employees and in processing work in general. Poor support in the IT area even though all work is an electronic enviroment.

    Advice to Management

    Support your business! Upgrade where needed and support the set up and training of employees to do the work. Way too slow and this is a waste of employee resources.
