Pros

The people are great and very supportive. The benefits are decent. Clients tend to be very happy with our work.

Cons

No growth potential. No promotions, no raises. The company is pretty stingy with money. The company needs to find a way to commend good work better.

Advice to Management

The company needs to find a way to commend good work better so people don't leave. Please consider giving promotions, raises, and bonuses to those who deserve it.

    Ambition and incentive long gone, but it is a job.

    Pros

    competitive salary, good benefits, accommodating for time off requests, superior local IT support, casual environment, friendly co-workers, professional office space, safe employee parking

    Cons

    The professional appearance of the office doesn't equate to professionalism of the management. Line employees are expected to follow procedures but in reality are instructed by management to circumvent procedures on a daily basis in order to make deadlines. Often management relies on a client's ignorance in order to knowing deliver an incorrect proof. Employee meetings are non-productive and management rarely implements any corrective actions discussed within the meetings. Outside personal relationships between superior and subordinate management frequently dictate business decisions despite being counter-productive and demoralizing to employees. Corporate Management is aware of the circumstances yet decides to look the other way in order to salvage remaining clients and revenue sources.

    Advice to Management

    Why have all employees sign an ethics and professionalism pledge if certain individuals are knowingly exempt? Try to promote from within, give employees incentives instead of condoning behavior and practices by remaining silent. Give the same message to employees as you do stakeholders. For U.S. employees blurbs like "taking advantage of our global footprint to reduce costs" equates to "shipping jobs overseas".

    Pros

    Competitive marketplace
    Interesting clients
    Some of the people are just great to work with
    Clients are more friendly than the employees most of the time

    Cons

    Terrible management, they have no idea what is going on, and are always trying to play catch up. They blame everything on everyone else and never own up to their own decisions. Most of the people are very two faced, friendly to your face, and then talk about you behind your back. No respect toward employees or the client. They have cut back pay and 401k, and I do not expect them to go anywhere but down. Avoid at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    The advice I give to the leadership at Schawk is to listen to employees at all times. They seem to forget that they are in a management/leadership role and act like they have never been trained.
