    Pros

    The good reasons are that they have the best medical insurance around at least in my plant. They also have a decent 401k.

    Cons

    The printing industry is on a decline there is more and more time off and less and less being printed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training and possibly finding openinings in different fields.

    I have been working at Quad/Graphics full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable company, decent benefits (with a catch)

    Cons

    Healthcare is GREAT... if you live near a QuadMed facility. For those of us no where near one, healthcare stinks and is expensive (my doctor was shocked by my copay, let alone the deductible I have to meet before it pays). Pay is low with very tiny yearly increases. Sounds like it used to be a great company, but it's lost its soul since Joel took over. Hard to get a decent raise without taking on a new position. Upper management doesn't listen to workers until it's too late. Want you to do more work without compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees doing the work before it's too late. Offer comparable benefits for your employees that don't live near QuadMed. Treat your employees well and maybe they'll work harder for you.

    Pros

    Great place to learn the industry and opportunity for growth. I feel like my contributions were recognized. Very friendly people who work there.

    Cons

    I wish they could offer more flexible working arrangements for non production staff. It is nice that they offer on site day care, but having the ability to work for home would have been very appealing for professional staff.

    Pros

    Great benefits, even though they are worse than when I started. My position is very flexible and I can dicate my own schedule.

    Cons

    Quad is good at talking talk but not walking the walk, the industry is changing rapidly and Quad has a hard time shifting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with people, we can see through the BS.
