    Pros

    Great co-workers and depending on the department you have managers that truly care about their area and their team. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    little or no growth opportunity. Management is not in tune with the business or with their employees. Morale is at an all time low. Hopefully with new owners this will turn around and be the company it use to be.

    Advice to Management

    The company is not what is was 15 - 20 years ago and we need to get on board with the new owners. Treat your employees better and listen to our input as we do majority of the work.

    People here generally want to do a good job.

    Pros

    Opportunities to make money- the cafeteria has good food. There is running water and light

    Help your employees- lead them and give them ways to improve sales.

    Pros

    Three and a half years of friendship and then moved positions

    Popularity contest/ talking behind your back almost 5yrs with company and got the boot with doing away with my position. Fake people pretending to know how to do their own jobs

    Advice to Management

    Reorganization. The heads keep their friends around even if the almost five year veteran of the company is to loose position or a temp. Temp was buddies

    I worked at Standard Register full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1) In 2011, I was hired into the Healthcare division. There appeared to be a clear focus and direction both long and short term. The Healthcare division clearly is a leader for this organization. 2) As many have stated here, the non-executive employees are generally dedicated to SR, hardworking and provide the backbone for this organization. 3) CEO resigned!! 4) New owners. 5) My direct manager was one of the best I have ever had...

    Cons

    A top-heavy executive-management structure that is overpaid based on the financial performance of the company and their 'head-scratching' decision making. Regardless of the intent (and I believe it was with good intent), taking on a bankrupt company (WorkflowOne) was a band-aid approach to solving financial and NYSE issues. The burden has created a combined bankruptcy and sale.

    Advice to Management

    As was stated so eloquently by the previous leader during a corporate meeting... 'prepare your resumes...'

    Pros

    This is a good job to get you out of college to gain experience and offers benefits.

    Cons

    Many service studio reps in this field own way too many accounts for one studio or person. Management is hesitant to effectively staff studios until capacity is at a breaking point. Often times reps/studios are working crisis to crisis without a lot of support outside of your studio team. There is a huge disconnect in a reps daily tasks and responsibilities and management's understanding of those roles to help support them.

    Advice to Management

    Support those who provide valued service to internal and external customers and reward them for diligent, exceptional work. Recognize when studios are overworked and need additional team members to support customers effectively. Encourage a positive work environment with rewards like time off work and bonuses. Level the playing fields between SR legacy and WFO folks.

    Pros

    * Advancement opportunities exist throughout * The culture is team oriented and stresses personal growth and community involvement. * The company has endured years of industry decline and an ever-changing business landscape, but has done so with it's present and past employees in mind. * The company provides a great atmosphere to work in * Some of my closest friends are people I've met at SR and I've only been here a handful of years * The company empowers it's people to be creative, think outside the box and not settle for status quo. * I've never been faced with an occasion where I couldn't take personal time to attend to outside/family issues.... * Standard Register gave me a an opportunity when all else seemed bleak. I have nothing but the best regards for this company and believe they will fight their way through troubling times.

    Cons

    * Company is enduring the same issues that, unfortunately, face so many other US companies that are 75+ years old * Company has to deal with negative press surrounding their future

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. You've inherited a mess but are fighting through it. The vision is clear and SR is executing to plan masterfully.
