    I have been working at Henry Wurst full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked through the tough times, a survivor in the printing industry, good people to work with, small enought that you don't get lost in the shuffle but big enough that you have opportunities to learn and grow

    Cons

    It's been a tough industry but seems to be turning around with the economy. Some negative people here who expect sunshine and rainbows everyday at work. It's work. Do your best and don't be a complainer

    I have been working at Henry Wurst full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has always been fair to me. I have worked here for over 15 years. Many of our employees have worked over 25 to 30 years. A company does not keep employees unless they are fair and equitable. Those that have complained were just not good and no doubt are not complaining about their new employer. I have held various positions in those years and have always had the opportunity to move up when I did a good job.

    Cons

    The printing industry has been very challenged in the last five years. The move away from print and to electronic media has hurt many printers, and many have gone out of business. In order to stay viable the company has had to make some very tough decisions to downsize and unload not productive people. This is the unfortunate circumstance of an industry that has matured.

    At first it was great, but ultimately disspointing

    I worked at Henry Wurst full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    nice office space, freedom to work at own pace

    Cons

    lack of recognition, and cliques with office gossip, job description was vague and became boring after the advancement opportunities clearly were not going to happen

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try to hire employees that can not only get along but actually work thriving together=not just doing the bare minimum. Hire an IT guy. discipline participants in gossiping rather than working quietly. and recognize the accomplishments/how benefited company; employ standardized training since it is confusing when coworkers all have different methods

    Decent job if you work hard you won't get laid off.

    I have been working at Henry Wurst

    Pros

    Good manager. No micromanagement. Steady work. If I ever wanted to stay in the print industry they have given me the tools to do so. They are trying to change a lot of things for the better.

    Cons

    They do not pay well at all. Hardest workers hardly recognized. Ask to much from employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more.

    I have been working at Henry Wurst full-time

    Pros

    The people who have given their all to make this company better is the only positive note. There are a handful of people in various departments that truly have the companies interest at heart. The sad part is they have no clue about what is happening to their company.

    Cons

    Too many to mention, but it all comes down to the front office. At some point the family must have sold out to the company president either that or they just really just don't care. They should change their mission statement for sure because integrity is not practiced there by any stretch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    President and his crew need to go, unitl that hapens it will only get worse.

    Used and abused

    I worked at Henry Wurst full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Paycheck and benefits were great

    Cons

    No respect for employees, not working with division that could think for themselves, placing individuals in management that are not capable of running large companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Owner needs to learn to run his own company and know his own business. Therefore when he or she needs to place individuals in management they know what to look for and not rely on other folk to do it for them. Run it in the ground.

    Long, long hours and large amounts of responsibility for average pay.

    Some bad management position choices in different areas of the company. These people might mean well but are wrong fit for the position they hold.

    I worked at Henry Wurst full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Helped me to learn skills that I have been able to take to other companies.

    Cons

    Poor management from more than one department. If we are to learn from example, I guess berating employees in front of others, cursing, and working minimum hours when others are busting their backs should be the norm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be a much better place to work if the middle management and upper management contributed to working along side the other employees instead of ignoring their need for help. It would be good if they knew how to do the employees jobs instead of telling them how to do it when they never have or don't even know the computer system themselves.

    Pros

    They actually pay you money.

    Cons

    Non existent management team that refuses to be proactive and chooses to be reactive in their duties. Virtually no guidance in what can be called a sink or swim environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the financial bleeding and close the place. The Wurst family has no real interest in the future other than collecting a paycheck out of the place.
