    I have been working at Multi Packaging Solutions

    Pros

    I have seen the company transition from an employee owned company to the corporate world. I recently transferred to a new department and was impressed with my new manager, because they are actually passionate about the printing business and strives to attain efficient, intelligent and competent employees in the department. It was hard to believe that a manager like this still existed in the company!! Everyone on in my new department is resourceful and work-oriented. Even though there has been a merge of departments, scare-tactic changes upon us all, and there are certain individual(s) I would not care to work around, I can honestly say that I wouldn't regret staying with the company for another 10 or more years and work building up my skills and keeping up with the technological advancements in the print industry.

    Cons

    Certain individuals preach the doom and gloom that they believe is upon the industry and that puts a huge damper on the work atmosphere. My previous manager of 6 years was not competent in their job responsibilities, they just went to meetings all day every day and delegated their duties out amongst the employees under them. I am not impressed with company/department/manager-discretion policies that are just enforced to instill a fear in all their employees, such as the attendance point system, which in times of emergency, sickness or even death, employees are constantly faced with the consequence of earning points that can lead to the termination of their job, when they don't give adequate 48-hour notification for their absence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your job! Don't let good employees with decades and decades of irreplaceable experience just walk out the door! Being a leader means serving your department, co-workers and employees!

    Pros

    A good company to work for. We got bought out by MPS and a lot of things are changing. The work environment is good, the benefits are not great but they will do.

    Cons

    There are a lot of people at the company that will throw you under the bus for no/any reason. Just a warning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more and have better benefits.

    Pros

    Lots of overtime if you want to work it
    Paycheck is on time
    Good people work on the equipment in my dept

    Cons

    I have watched managers constantly screw each over at every opportunity. We do not have one manager in this facility who understands the equipment and what we do. We are constantly threatened and belittled and when we try to speak up we are dismissed. The person running this operation is as clueless as the managers that report to her

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some printing professionals as your management team and clean house!

    Pros

    The company invests in great equipment and is very modern. Hard work is rewarded if you are willing to do what it takes.

    Cons

    Overall the company has become very large and it is difficult to maintain any type of smaller feel as things become more and more corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!!

    Pros

    Health Insurance to pay for

    Cons

    Micro managed , very top heavy with management with lack of direction. Took Vacation earned away, took personal time away, took bonus time away . Low pay with no increases, Mandatory OT for Months with no days off unless you are granted a vacation day if you have enough time earned . No scheduling or planning of any jobs ran , seem to wait till job is due then print it and try to get it out , Hence all the weekends of OT . then after the weekend low work to do for the week. While working the OT weekend no managers. they don't like to work OT rather be home with Families . They do not care about workers Families or problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan and schedule all jobs , each dept. should know a week in advance what will be running on equipment for the next week . Ditch the needless safety glasses, the air quality in the plant is no different then that in your office.

    Pros

    LOTSA' available overtime, in fact,you are Mandatoried more often than not..not much more Good I can say..management was taken from within plant so supervisors were knowledgable with the problems faced...operators were among the BEST in the business with YEARS of experience

    Cons

    Plant was run by humiliation,degradation and Intimidation...complete disregard for repair and maintanance of equipment and failure to order much needed parts...Upper management lacked any "people skills" and hence,Morale among co-workers was terrible.....Management didn't trust operators to tell them what problems were or didn't want to hear....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower and TRUST the people that operate machines daily ..not everyone there that offers advice or suggestions are lying or trying to get over on the company.

    Pros

    Good equipment and tools to work with. Experienced staff and management that know the business. There is a focus on improvement every day. Issues are addressed before they become bigger problems. Problem-solving is inclusive of more than just the top level of management. Things were pretty negative here not long ago (similar to some of these other reviews), but improved management, the return of reasonable work weeks and a good, strong core at all levels have righted the ship, improved morale and set the stage for success moving forward.

    Cons

    Not enough work for much of the last year. There are some areas where updated equipment and tools are needed. There are some who look at it as "just a job" and that's not good at any level in this industry. The ones who care grow weary of carrying the ones who don't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course. The last year and a half has shown significant and sustained improvement in just about every area (morale, productivity, finances).

    Pros

    Good starting pay, good training in any position. Some of the best Co workers. plenty of overtime that allows to make a decent wage.

    Cons

    You are only a number here at MPS no one in management cares about you or your family. If something happens to you or your family don't expect a get well card or if you lost someone close to you like a son or a daughter don't expect a card or flowers from the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that the employees are human and treat them that way. Bring back the summer picnic bring back the Christmas parties. Raise the top pay where they should be. If a manager or supervisor can not treat people with respect. Get rid of them like they get rid of there employee.
