I worked at SGK full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

*A global company with offices in many major metropolitan cities across the world
*Very smart and well-run production and prepress teams overseas

Cons

*Poor wages: If you want to get paid way below your worth, take a job with Schawk
*Raises are not based on your performance reviews and are seemingly awarded at random
*They treat their clients poorly and continually price-gauge them
*If you are based on-site at a client you are treated like a third-rate member of the company. It's like you work on an island, they completely forget about you.
*Completely outdated software (Filemaker Pro is still widely used)
*if you get laid off you only get 3 days of severance for every year of service. Pretty crappy in comparison to most large companies.
*No innovation or seeming to care that the entire company is losing its competitive edge
*Everyone in the office looks depressed and wilted, no one looks happy to be there

Advice to ManagementAdvice

*Reward hard-working employees and provide opportunities for advancement.
*Stop price-gauging your clients. Your business will cease to exist if this poor treatment continues.

    I worked at SGK full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the employees are hard-working qualified, friendly and sincere.

    Cons

    Senior management is disconnected from the client base. There is an air of disdain towards employees. Some of the human resources people are truly awful. Middle management was okay, but there is a disconnect because they don't keep up with new technologies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management needs to listen to salespeople and clients. The Schawk culture needs major improvements. They need to treat employees with more respect. There needs to be more cross training and education of employees overall.
