    I have been working at Quad/Graphics

    Pros

    The company is working hard to move up and keep going in a competitive work industry. They manage to make sure employees have decent healthcare, access to 401k plans, rehab help if needed, decent activities throughout the year like company parties, and raises if you show you can stand out and do your job well.

    Cons

    Delayed w-2 forums. HR issues are not always addressed in a timely matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would go through the plants and ask the employees if they are having any issues or concerns, to maybe fix reasonable concerns and weed out the ones who can't be content with being lucky enough to actually have a decent job that is not flipping burgers. I'm sure there are plenty of hardworking people who would be thankful to have a career at Quad. We are team Quad, and we are in this together. If your not in it for the win, then get out .

    Pros

    when you are part time you get to pick your own hours and you can still work full t i me hours. When full time you have great insurance.

    Cons

    Cons are when you work full tme you switch from days to nights every 4 months

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe work more closely with the lower guys on the totem pole and make them feel like they are worth something and they have chances to advance

    Former Employee - Ink/Roll Tender in Fernley, NV

    I worked at Quad/Graphics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The employees were great to work with and were always there for me if I needed Assistence on anything. The people are friendly and very professional and knowledgable when it comes to thier jobs. The management and supervisors are great and very fair to all of the employees. Everyone is motivated and executes their jobs with out having to be told or supervised.

    Cons

    Their will always be challenges in any job, It is always a challenge to manufacture the highest quality product. The employees of Quad Graphic meet that challenge head on and always succeed in proucing a very high quality product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe it would be great if quad can bring more training courses to the Fernley facility that directly impact our possitions. For example color theory for ink tender positions as well as other positions in the company.
