    Pros

    Decent health insurance. Actually have a company match for the 401k plan. Paycheck never bounced. Pay rate ok but NEVER industry standard

    Cons

    Outdated management. Pray to the god Harry in your blues or be tossed aside. Treat customers extremely well while burning experienced employees in piles.

    Advice to Management

    Management hears all the concerns but they don't listen.

    Pros

    Mon-Fri hours for Administrative positions and four weeks of vacation after ten years with the company. Good solid direction with the company vision and an extremely innovative business. Room for growth, if you want it, but isn't accompanied with a higher pay scale. Smart, solid place to work.

    Cons

    Harsh, unprofessional work environment where bullying is tolerated and in some cases encouraged by management. A complete lack of "Respect" for employees and there are no clearly defined rules for admin, leaving the rules at the description of your direct manager. Problem is he/she may have many sets of rules depending on how much you are liked. An example is the work hours-vary by employee and are not consistent. I was forced to worked longer hours and watch my entire cube clear out while I stayed another 45 minutes.
    Also, there is no work/life balance as all PSR's and CSR's are on call 24/7.

    Advice to Management

    Break your code of support with management and listen to their direct reports. There is a major moral issue that can't be addressed when the front line managers treat employees however they want. Follow the values you preach....Respect.

    Pros

    There are no pros to working here. Ask the folks who were formerly Brown Printing. They got reamed.

    Cons

    Low pay. Mind numbingly boring, dull, monotonous job. Horrible benefits package for a company this size. 12 hour shifts. Management lies to employees, understaffs maint. and pressroom. Uses Earthday to con employees into doing their landscaping and cleanup for them. Cheats customers by lying to them about job specs. Smart Tools only complicates the job, when they should be trying to make things simpler. The old adage fits here. Keep It Simple, Stupid. All those stupid corporate catchphrases mean nothing. The money Joel makes by conning the customers and screwing over the employees he uses for his collection of exotic cars, while the employees have difficulty paying huge medical bills because of the lousy benefits. If I could give minus 5 stars, I would.

    Pros

    It was a job, paid some bills, had some benefits

    Cons

    Quad is a cult, the owner (son of founder) is "Megalomaniac" Purchased my company and division, when asked if we his new employees would meet him he answered "only if I happen to be in the area". HE HAS A PENTHOUSE WITHIN 100 MILES OF THE FACILITY! YOU ARE A NUMBER! 'DON'T DRINK THE KOOL-AID!

    Advice to Management

    if YOU ARE REALLY ANY GOOD GET OUT NOW!
