I worked at BurrellesLuce full-time (More than 10 years)
I worked for Burrellesluce for almost a total of 30+ yrs as an Editor/Reader, and I was good at my job. I miss it very much, and I wished they did not close our office as it had been in hometown for over 100 yrs., and we were a very productive office. I know they stated they closed us because of economic reasons, but they should of looked at the quality of our work compared with their other office's across the country, and figured out a way to keep our office open.
The pay was not in line with the cost of living for today.
Advice to Management
Think about your good employees. I know the bottom line is important as with all businesses but they needed to remember the employees are the real backbone of any company, and when you close an office that had been opened for over 100 years, it affects the former employees in a big way who were loyal to the company.
It has been very negative for my life, as it was the only I knew how to do, and I am too old to go back to school, graduate in four years, and then try to get a new job as when all that is done, I will be up in age but won't be able to get retirement because I haven't reach the required age-I'm caught in catch 22 situation.
I met them through a recruitment agency and based on my previous experience, not much question were asked. I was asked basic question about programming and myself, based on my resume.
