    At first it was great, but ultimately disspointing

    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.

    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    Toxic environment, no leadership exist. Henry would be ashamed.What a tragedy.

    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

    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Management  in  Apex, NC
    Former Employee - Management in Apex, NC

    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.

    Pros

    Some great and skilled employee’s who care and work hard and go the extra mile for their customers.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Ok at first, but it's not called the 'Wurst' without a reason.

    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.

    Out of Control Nightmare

    Current Employee - Project Manager  in  North Kansas City, MO
    Current Employee - Project Manager in North Kansas City, MO

    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.

    Terrible place to work

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  North Kansas City, MO
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in North Kansas City, MO

    Pros

    You can be very self-directed there, the lack of management means that you will never be micromanaged. The environment is casual. Benefits and time off is at least comparable to other companies.

    Cons

    Unfair distribution of work leading to unmanageable workloads for some, no recognition or reward for hard work or work well done, there is no training or communication, little to no feedback from management, salaries are well below national medians and raises are denied outright. There is also no chance for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a real training program for proprietary systems, segment departments so that managers can actually understand the workload of their employees, implement a mandatory annual performance review policy, and consider some kind of an employee appreciation program where good workers are recognized.

    The worst place I have ever worked. Very poor management and an HR department that shows no corcern for employees.

    Pros

    At least it is a job to get you by until the economy shows improvement.

    Cons

    They reduce wages after you are hired,no performance reviews. The management style is one of manipulation and intimidation(old school). Excessive overtime is mandatory,unsafe work conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management,people who know how to deal with people in a more professional manner.
    Promote from within instead of hiring cronies who don't know how to do the job.
