Pros

Large company with lots of capabilities.

Cons

Almost too large, not nimble enough to respond to customer's needs compared to mom and pop competition. Upper management has no long term view, only short term goal of raising stock price.

Advice to Management

Have a long term (10+ years) view of the industry and invest there, not on short term gain.

    Pros

    Senior Leadership has extremely high standards and business ethics. Company is financially strong and continues to grow in a positive direction.

    Cons

    An overabundance of latitude given to middle managers in terms of account assignment and job description given that compensation is 100% commission for most sales representatives. Highly political environment with personal agenda as the driver rather than customer welfare at the middle management level.

    Advice to Management

    Hire mid level managers that have a higher level of integrity, honesty and overall sense of ethics.

  2. Good place to work but slipping fast

    Pros

    Relaxed Environment

    Profit sharing

    Cons

    Dieing Industry - Print is going out
    No Matching 401k since 1/1/2013
    No pension
    Benefits are costly
    Not enough resources to be efficient

    Advice to Management

    Focus on Waste, Speed, Delay and Housekeeping. If you focus on anything else, your wasting time, money and resources. If you focus on the bottom line, waste speed and delay suffer which makes the bottom line worse. The bottom line is a product of Waste Speed and Delay. Housekeeping is the biggest impact on safety. Good housekeeping drives good safety results. ping
