    Pros

    Helpful, work hard, meeting new customers and being helpful, great for first time production artists to learn the ropes of working and printing within this environment, they will train the right individual to succeed at their job

    Cons

    Sometimes irate customers if their product does not come in on time. Where I worked the owner butted in on conversations and disregarded what I had said to the customer already and over wrote what I had done for them, priced and helped them in a completely negative way while I was left to pick up the pieces and help them in the best way I knew how, listen to them and give them what they wanted.

    Advice to Management

    Help the employees to become better at what they do and do not talk bad about them to customers and please do not interrupt a conversation to interject something that is not relevant to the customer since you never talked to them from the beginning. Pull the employee aside and ask some questions and ask if they can help you sell the customer what they want.


  6. Although I did gain production experience, as a designer, I felt that I took a damaging step backwards for my career.

    Pros

    Company pays for half of health benefits and has a IRA contribution fund match.

    Cons

    Worked here for six years and they told me I would get a pay raise after the first year. Since have had 2 substantial pay cuts and told we are over paid. They have no production management even thought they put jobs in a "scheduler" they don't look at the amount of time it will take to produce the work. There are more problems to this than I can list in one sitting.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to do proper management.
