Pros

The employees are really smart and know what they are doing. The staff is very talented and creative. The benefits package is also very good.

Cons

Management does not have a clue what we do. Morale is very low and there are rarely ever any moments of celebration. Layoffs are frequent and we are never really told why, other than to save money. Compensation is way below average and the raises are non-existent. We are always told retaining employees and career advancement are a priority but since it never done, it is just lip service.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your people are your company. I know you need your clients but without your employees, you would not be who you are. Treat your people with more respect and really look at your compensation options. Reward your employees for their hard work and dedication. You will have a much happier and dedicated workforce for it.

    I worked at SGK

    Pros

    -Benefits package was very generous and reasonably priced.
    -Chicago location is a really easy commute in a fun part of the city.

    Cons

    -Management is very under trained.
    -Many managers are more interested in telling the teams how much they messed up instead of identifying areas where the team excelled.
    -Overall moral is low due to frequent layoffs.
    -No work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have good employees. You need to treat them well. Show them that you appreciate them by giving raises and paying them what they are worth. There needs to be a work/life balance. Remember your employees are not slaves. They are human beings with families and lives outside of Schawk.
