    Pros

    It's a paycheck, however, very small.

    Cons

    Terribly managed. Absolutely terrible benefits. Low employee morale. High employee turnover due to the terrible benefits and the way management treats their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Add some real benefits. And hire all new management.

    Pros

    great at scamming investors with empty shell companys

    Cons

    take b&d litho of arizona. was bought by ennis in 2007.
    company was doing about 12 million a year.
    company in 2014 now doing about 900,000 a year.
    they lost all of the customers over the years due to very bad management.
    company is now an empty shell but they pretend that the place is a profit making company.
    trying to keep stock prices up. most of their company's are this way.
    they look good on paper but if go to each of these company's and look them over, you will see a failing model.
    i feel sorry for the investors who will lose when the truth comes out and it all blows up.

    Advice to Management

    cant tell scam artist anything that they don't already know.

    Pros

    - Small town atmosphere
    - Low stress (we're not curing cancer)
    - Mid-management and staff are friendly
    - Good corporate and fiscal reputation

    Cons

    - Below average pay for low to mid-level workers
    - Hiring and raise freeze while executives get their bonuses
    - Managers do not do anything to encourage the growth of their employees
    - Good 'ol boy environment; if you are friends with the CEO you will never lose your job

    Advice to Management

    - Lighten up and spend time interacting with the people downstairs. They have good ideas once in a while
    - Evaluate just how much some of the executives are responsible for and accomplishing versus what they are paid.

  7. Look elsewhere
