    I worked at Valassis full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility. Surrounded by a good team. Steady, reliable work and paycheck. Challenging. Sometimes get to be creative. Good pay. Great benefits. Good management.

    Cons

    Lots of "corporate" speak. Change for the sake of change without much thought or explanation. Overload of special projects and teams. Always a great amount of pressure to outdo the previous year's performance review. Lack of communication.

    Advice to Management

    I feel like overall management does a good job, but my advice would be to get less bogged down in projects and teams and focus on ways to make doing the job easier and better. Speak like a human and not a corporate robot. There is not much room to grow beyond the graphics department if that's where you start. If you hint at promoting someone, don't leave them hanging for 2 years on that promise...

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Valassis.

    Interview

    I was invited to an event locally to meet with key leaders , the Talent Acquisition Team and peers for an evening of food and discussion. I was blown away by the energy and enthusiasm of the organization. I was hesitant to attend because most of these end up being a waste of time but I must say Valassis proved me wrong! I had a direct line of contact with the recruiters and the TA Manager and was blown away. AWESOME event and worth my time.
