    Quad is a great company to work for.

    Offset Press Assistant II (Current Employee)
    West Allis, WI

    Proswhen 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe 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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    My Guad Graphics Experience.

    Ink/Roll Tender (Former Employee)
    Fernley, NV

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsTheir 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 Senior ManagementI 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Quad/Graphics is a great place to work for people who are self motivated and creative.

    (Current Employee)

    ProsQuad promotes a culture of learning your job, knowing your job, improving and then teaching others. It is an innovative and forward thinking corporation.

    ConsQuad started as a small family company and over the past few years has become a very large corporation. They are still working through some issues with older methodologies (e.g., Ready, Fire, Aim) that are no longer viable for a company this large.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
