Great for work life balance, but doesn't have opportunities available for growing employees.

I worked at Valassis full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Valassis has a unique culture that is hard to find in the corporate world. It's a laid back atmosphere, where employees are allowed to think for themselves. If you're looking for work/life balance, Valassis is the place to be. Their flex time is great, which I personally took advantage of and you rarely have to work overtime.

Cons

-Little to no growth in the industry
-Not a lot of new job opportunities were available to grow in
-Pay not the most competitive (but relative to hrs worked-good)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees. The best solutions are found by the people who work with it every day.

    Pros

    It is rarely boring. There is an ever changing variety of people and tasking. Many variables in the material to be processsed makes for interesting days.

    Cons

    Ever since the acquisition of ADVO, there has been a constant flow of legacy valassis associates into legacy ADVO positions, with a corresponding flow of legacy ADVO associates out the door. Valassis makes a big deal about you living by their published core values, but makes no effort to do the same.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try promoting some legacy ADVO people into higher legacy ADVO jobs. Those people you keep running out the door actually know that business (better than you do). It is hard to grow the business when you have to spend all your time training people who don't have a clue and should.
