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

    Pros

    Only things I can think of was just the people I worked with in the shop and being able to meet a bunch of different people in all sort of fields of work. It was stable work enviroment.

    Cons

    No loyalty with employees, very cut throat, hard to deal with upper management, to many upper management trying to impose there will. Hard to get a raise. In my tenure there I only got 3 raises I was employed over 10 years. Benefits are outrageous. Company doesn't listen to there employees or clients needs most of the time. They try and manage by bullying you sorta.

    Advice to Management

    Show your long-term employees loyalty and figure out which direction the company is moving and stick with the plan. Needs to be better communication between upper management and employees.

    I have been working at ABC Imaging full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Base salary and commission structure

    Cons

    Outside sales people are treated like hourly employees and have to physically clock in and out of the local store.
    Not competitive at all on pricing and they don't care.

    Advice to Management

    Be more competitive and let your sales people be more autonomous in order to be more successful

    I worked at ABC Imaging full-time

    Pros

    The people are typically great. They are nice and friendly. I've made great friends.

    Cons

    Low pay, terrible benefit. The higher management are two-faced. When you first met them for interviews, they will be very nice to lure you in. Once you're in, they treat you like you don't exist. Yet, the micro-management level is off the chart. People leave and get fire left and right. If you want to feel stressed and scared most of them time. Then this this the job for you. CEO doesn't care for the employees at all. He just cares of money and money only. I felt sad for anyone that went into the interview room at ABC Imaging. When they promised a raise within 3months, get it on writing. Please know if you don't negotiate at the beginning, DO NOT count on getting a raise!

    Advice to Management

    I don't think anything would work if higher management doesn't change, esp. the CEO. Stop hiring C*O level people and then fire lower level employees and/ or cut hourly people's hours. This makes no sense.

    I worked at ABC Imaging full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Well apart from mw feeling like i was in a adult nursury the few youmg ones where ok

    Cons

    The arrogance of management is unbearable I worked in the new jersey branch and there was no proper ventilation so you inhale all the fumes from.the machine. There is no management the last manager resigned on short notice after firing and laying off people. The owner is like a spoilt kid with a candy in his mouth and cares zero about his workers. I was told i had to work 12 hours and their is no overtime pay because you are already salaried. There is no room for advancement ive met people in the same position as old as i am.

    Advice to Management

    No advice because they already know what needs to be done but they are all puppets on the owner....

    I worked at ABC Imaging full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    great experience working along side a few great ppl, personality and professional wise, in a large format print production facility. Opportunity to learn different facets and processes ranging from small to large format printing and digital media, to fabrication and manufacturing from start to finish.

    Cons

    I have to agree with a lot of the negativity surrounding this company and its poor reviews and rating. Within the first 2 weeks of my employment, close to 18 employees had gotten laid off and shortly after some ppl who were with the company for over 15 years, even 20+ were submitting their resignation papers, and a little before my first what was supposed to be employee review after 90 days, my hiring manager leaves the company on short notice. I was told that salary personnel are subject to raises often and bonuses, but THIS IS JUST NOT TRUE AT ALL!

    The CEO did away with all overtime for hourly employees, and as a manager you are expected to put in minimum 12hr shifts and make sure you are available to work weekends at all times. The work/life balance does NOT exist. They demand you put the company first, your personal life will suffer drastically as you will come to find out you will not have one.

    Unfortunately for me, I could not perform within my role in which I was originally hired to do as Project Manager. I had to be available and fill every void they had left because most of the staff either quit or got laid off. There isn’t anybody left to do the work and despite knowing they are short staffed, they refuse to hire replacements and if at all they will hire cheap and under-qualified. They expect the managers to now work even harder, longer hours in light of this problem with no end in sight.

    Advice to Management

    Take a seminar on how to create a profitable, successful company where you value the hard work and dedication your employees have or what’s left of them and stop looking for ways to cut corners and cut cost by letting go of talented, experienced professionals.
    Seriously the environment is dreadful and the lack of employee morale is unlike anything I’ve ever seen its no wonder why this company and its CEO has one of the worst ratings I have ever seen in this industry.

    I worked at ABC Imaging full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, bonuses when sales goals are reached, opportunity to move positions within company

    Cons

    Passive aggressive management style, unorganized, serious lack of communication

    Advice to Management

    Be more open and direct. When the CEO visits, he should introduce himself and not make employees feel like they don't matter or exist.

    Pros

    Has ability to be great

    Cons

    Complete disconnect between HQ and branches. Poor strategy communication. Operations personnel always in fear they will lose their job. Sales team focus constantly changes due to whims of owner. No clear strategy, no organization between HQ and branches, no clear way to interconnect the various divisions, etc.
    Just decided without warning to cut all sales reps commissions. Sales reps are thought of as worker bees who do nothing.

    Advice to Management

    communicate

    Pros

    Great services but they are cancelled out by poor leadership and management

    Cons

    The CEO is not fit to manage that company. Besides him cussing out employees and having a temper tantrum like a toddler on the daily, upper management has no idea how to structure their departments or treat their employees. Keep looking for better job never settle for ABC Imaging.

    Advice to Management

    HR should do more to raise employee morale and empower management and departments with their own budgets, goals, and do what ever they can to keep the craziness of that CEO from interfering with the staffs ability to do their jobs.

    Pros

    2 plus years, had to work really hard first 2 years. But got paid more than most companies.

    Cons

    Would have liked to do more design work and less production, but once they figured out I was better than other designers, they hired a production person under me

    Advice to Management

    They are learning to separate design and production.
