    Pros

    Excellent environment and work culture. Paid befits were very good. Management very understanding and accommodating. Fellow employees were great to work with and everyone pulled together during the busy times. for 13 years, I looked forward to going to work everyday.

    Cons

    Too much outsourcing contributed to the downsizing of the company.

    Advice to Management

    With all due respect, put as much effort to keeping jobs in this country and within the company as much as you try to max out your profits.

    Pros

    Great benefits, paid lunch with no clock out required, 12 hour shifts with 3 days off one week then four off the next week. Cheap uniforms. Progressive attitude to safety and education. Large facilities have cafeterias that are open for both shifts, and the ability to payroll deduct all vending and cafeteria purchases. Large plants also have onsite clinics and fitness rooms.

    Cons

    weak annual raises despite a positive annual review. A newly hired employee can out earn a tenured employee in a few years due to competitive recruiting.

    Advice to Management

    Up the annual raises to your current workers who have shown loyalty, commitment, and service to the company. .20-.30 annually does not keep up with inflation. The sole reason why I just resigned.

    Pros

    you have four days out of the week off and only work three. the co workers are pretty cool for the most part.

    Cons

    the sup plays favorites lets the people they like do the easy things or the things that make the time fly by and sends everyone else off to the side to do the lack dog work. they hire you part time so they dont have to give you benefits . its 12 hours for 3 days its like a fight to get 40 hours a week. also managers are lazy and ego trip

    Advice to Management

    lead by examle. dont walk around all night doing nothing or dont walk around doing things then when someone else does them you punish them.

    poor pay, not treated like an adult professional. silly work rules more suited to a factory than an office, very low morale. weak management who never back you up with the clients. Outsourcing the work laying off staff and geving everyone left more and more work for no pay.

    Pros

    Great benefits, vacation and trade days, all of the overtime that you can handle

    Cons

    Mediocre pay. Mandatory overtime, constantly changing shift schedule. Unrealistic expectations for a workforce dependent on temp workers. Terrible leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees with the focus on creating a great product not on quantity.

    Pros

    Co workers on division level work together as a team.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Very strict guidelines on everything which then fosters the "why bother attitude". Poor communication reciprocating from the top. Pay scale and benefits are not the best.

    Advice to Management

    Possibly if the company kept to its more humble beginnings, instead of trying to be the largest printer in North America, there would be a better work environment in place.
