    Pros

    Paid the bills, Had some insurance benefits. That is the best I can do.

    Cons

    To big, to powerful, cultish, You truly are just a number. An example: when my company was swallowed up by Quad 3 years ago, we had a "Tele" conference with the CEO/Owner (Son) Joel. He was asked if he would be coming to the plant to meet/greet. His answer only if I am ever in the area. This man has a place less that 100 miles from the plant! NEED I SAY ANYMORE? YES! DON'T DRINK THE KOOL-AID !!!

    Advice to Management

    If you are any good get out now!

    Pros

    30% of the people are hardworking and quite good. At one time they lived what they preached.

    Cons

    Very weak HR. HR is a social girls club with no ethics or ability to help people who work there with their problems. Pay is poor and benefits which were good are getting chopped. Company says one thing and does another. Supervisors desperately need training. Top management out of touch.

    Advice to Management

    Get someone in HR who people can relate to and has the backbone to fix things. Get rid of poor employees and those in distribution who would sell their own mother to further their own career.
