I worked at SGK full-time

Pros

Good compensation and decent benefits.
Outstanding global client base .
Very talented workforce that produces great work for the clients.
A few strong senior managers in Operations.

Cons

Executive management has a lot of poor managers who wouldn't survive in most other organizations.
Many jobs are being outsourced to cut costs.
Performance reviews are never done in some departments.
No salary increases in years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You've hired good people but continue to make all the decisions yourselves and ignore input from your people.

    Current Employee - Quality Assurance Analyst in Des Plaines, IL

    I have been working at SGK full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Welcoming staff, made me feel comfortable and welcome the first day. Management at my location is very involved and engaged in the daily operations and business processes. There is a very well-defined set of business processes in place that support the entire operation. Employees follow the process, and are encouraged to give feedback to help improve the process.

    Cons

    The physical facility could use some work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improvements to the physical space would make many employees happy. They comment about how much they miss their old facility.

    I have been working at SGK full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Company has locations worldwide, most with similar structures. Chicago locations have amazing photography and print production operations. This company offers a great start for any interested in the catalog and print marketing arenas.

    Cons

    Poor executive involvement and hubris contribute to serious client and staff missteps. Very little room for advancement at locations with which I am familiar. Creative and Account staff feel restricted while Production staff is pressed hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees must be coached and developed—and given opportunities to grow and advance. Executives should listen to and recognize client needs; support staff who can proactively steward accounts.
