    I worked at SGK full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good running equipment, free coffee, and popcorn on Thursday

    Cons

    Layoffs every 6 months even when there is work. Skeleton crew and mandatory overtime. No raises, no promotions and it's a horrible toxic environment. Work is being outsourced overseas. Management does not care about your career, just get the work done faster. If your Salary watch out, get ready for 60 hour weeks with no compensation for the extra hours .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to treating employees as humans, give raises.

    I worked at SGK full-time

    Pros

    I learned a lot in this company, I worked with them for 6 years.

    Cons

    Don't expect a review and a pay raise. If you do get a review you can keep dreaming to get a pay raise. Don't even get cost of living increase. There are some shady tactics going on in the background. This is one particular group, all the other groups seemed to be happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow through and don't make false promises.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
