    I worked at Tattoo Manufacturing full-time

    Pros

    Immediate co-workers were wonderful people and cared about the quality of work they were producing. Enjoyed the enthusiasm of the individuals on my team.

    Cons

    There is an overwhelming amount of micromanagement coming from the new CEO. In addition, a once fun and creative enviroment has become hostile, unorganized, and frankly an enviroment that the majority of people at the company hate working in. Instead of coming together to innovate and enjoy their work, people are now there only for the paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to allow your employees to do their jobs, that is why they were hired. Employees are being stifled and the business is suffering. In addition, a little compassion, understanding, and interest in your employees would help a lot. Stop treating them like dollar signs and start treating them like people.

    CEO of the company to pay close attention to Savvi division management. There are issues of non-professionalism there and a lot of mistakes.

    I worked at Tattoo Manufacturing full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It's a job with a paycheck. Large enough that you may be able to hide from the internal warfare between management.

    Cons

    There is a ridiculous "Cultural Contract" posted throughout the facility and all of the tenets have been violated by the various management individuals, including the former CEO, who ran this place. rumor has it the board forced him out because of his behavior. Employees live in fear, triangulation is epidemic, nepotism is as well and there is sexual harassment training; but such harassment was endemic by certain senior management. This company is on the way down. Turnover amongst mid-management high. Blue-collar employees treated extremely poorly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company places no value on it's employees. That's probably due to the personalities that have run it along with the venture capital-oriented ownership. It's a classic example of corporate double-speak.

    I have been working at Tattoo Manufacturing

    Pros

    In Tucson, a job is a job, but this is not the place to spend your working hours. Location OK, free parking and some benifits.

    Cons

    Really poor and inexperienced management and supervision at all levels. Former owners relative runs rough shod over all areas. Senior management is not involved or effective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate all supervision and management, reduce amount by 25% and replace all current management with people management with proper training. Basically, start over with some quality hands on management.

    I worked at Tattoo Manufacturing

    Pros

    location, being in Tucson area and one of few employers that hires, usually due to high turnover or firing of current employees.

    Cons

    No opportunity, too much supervision that does little to nothing same goes for the so called President and CEO of the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some professionalism and supervision with some professional training, treat people with some respect, quit bad mouthing employees behind their backs.

    Pros

    Tucson business, casual dress code, many co-workers friendly, close to freeway. PC and Apple equipment somewhat current as well as software.

    Cons

    No creative freedom or ability to express new ideas. All level of managers just doing what will keep them out of trouble..... survival mentality. People treatment and management deplorable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    House clean- Get rid of all supervision from CEO through Management and replace with professionals with some experience and talent. Several Management in past had vision, but anyone with some real forward thoughts, ideas or vision are quickly eliminated... retaining the remaining family memeber in management just made things worse, hands off Senior Management add nothing to the mix.

    I worked at Tattoo Manufacturing

    Pros

    Location is somewhat central and close to freeways, starting compensation is adequate. Co workers are fun and friendly, willing to help.

    Cons

    Caustic work environment, no merit reviews or salary increases with the new ownership and the new President. Past owners and President took care of employees with respect, current owners and President are unprofessional and opportunistic.

    Communication poor, decision making takes for ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire current President (Steve Tooker) and a couple other middle Managers (called VPs) and hire some professional management.

    Past leadership was much better.

    I worked at Tattoo Manufacturing

    Pros

    Well, it's work, and times are tough. And the freebies are pretty good (who would turn down free tattoos?), the co workers are friendly, and the parking is free.

    Cons

    The pay stinks, the building is pretty grim (even for a manufacturing plant), the turnover rate is high, the drive is long (no matter where in Tucson you live). And the job security? Well, it's not like CHINA can't manufacture temporary tattoos. If you come to work here, expect your job to be short lived as this industry will be one of the first to go down with the New Economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to mix your personal opinions with your management decisions.
