    Pros

    Pay CAN be decent if you have been with the company long enough...

    Cons

    Company started cutting most incentives for employees. Used to be able to get $25 a year for every year you worked, up to $500. Also for every year not calling out sick you get $200, up to $1,000!!! The years you worked bonus is gone, and the not calling is is now capped at $300. Captains Club award, GONE! We had people at our site not call out for upwards to 15-20 years! Now they are calling out because $300 is complete crap to them. Getting a check for $1,500 during the XMAS season was a blessing.. Not anymore! Say goodbye to that! While all the higher ups and sales guys get bonus', the people who actually DO THE WORK get nothing. I used to care, not so much anymore due to the companies greediness.

    Advice to Management

    Start showing your employees that you appreciate them. Give the incentives back! Get the "Captains Club" award going again. Stop expecting everyone to work overtime ALL the time. People have a life and does not, or should not revolve around the job.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, casual dress, work from home

    Cons

    Too many middle managers, Sales drives everything, the people that actually do the work are undervalued and underpaid, bonus potentials were cut, insurance is terrible

    Advice to Management

    I believe that Vestcom leadership/stockholders are way more concerned about being a desirable purchase than about the actual culture and well being of the company and it's employees.

    Pros

    Some great employees at this job, great people! Great benefits and the company does occasionally provide some perks.

    Cons

    At this time, job security is shaky, employees are considered more of cost and a hindrance rather than a resource and outsourcing is the word of the day.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop projecting such unrealistically high benchmarks to our investors. We're now positioned to either outsource to cheap labor or third parties, or increasingly cut staff to make our numbers look better. This won't be good for either our clients, our employees or our investors. Do something about the 'Acxiom' clique. We have way to many under-qualified ex-Acxiom employees that are creating a very hostile culture within the company.


  8. Decent place to work

    Pros

    Good work life balance and benefits.

    Cons

    Work was very monotonous and command chain was very rigid.

    Advice to Management

    Office culture was pretty dry. They could add some group activities.

    Pros

    Until new management took over in early to mid 2014, the director was great to work for. He appreciated everyone's hard work and was very hands-off.

    Cons

    Promotions were almost non-existent unless you were in the right group. Raises, again, were non-existent regardless of how well or bad the company performed. During the company's best year ever, we were awarded a tiny 3% raise..just like the previous year. For the area of the country, the compensation is Ok; HOWEVER, with the level of responsibilty you're given for daily decisions involving potentially tens of thousands of dollars in product, the salary isn't near worth it. Depending on the client you're tied to, there is NO work-life balance. You're essentially on the clock 24/7 with no backup; being without backup is the worst especially on holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Create internal policies to allow engineers of many customers to always have a backup for work-life balance. Give raises in direct proportion with company performance. Remove managers of any level whom are only out for their own self-interest...My fear for the company is that it's turning more and more into a sweatshop and not brining in enough high profit customers; this will kill it's growth over the long term.

    Pros

    You can do anything and get away with anything. No accountability. Pays well.

    Cons

    Allot of dishonesty, No accountability, no appreciation for the work you do.

    Advice to Management

    Start thanking your employees for the time and work they put in, hold people accountable. Add some structure to the work environment. Be honest with your employees so they will respect you more.

    Pros

    Lots of overtime during the later half of the year. Start as a temp and make up to $15 an hour.

    Cons

    You have to start at the bottom and have to come from a temp service. Plus nights and 12 hour shifts suck. Another con it takes 2 years

    Advice to Management

    Advise would be to corporate is to actually care for your employees. The local management on 2nd is pretty good and 3rd shift is pretty relaxed.
