    I worked at ABC Imaging full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hardworking and overworked employees are remarkably still upbeat. Convenient downtown location with easy public transport. Support staff and IT department are well versed in their field. Learn a lot from other departments and opportunities to advance are available.

    Cons

    Verbally abusive upper management. CEO is constantly berating employees and even his executive staff. No clear chain of command and no sense of forward direction due to lack of proper leadership. Constant financial issues within the company

    Advice to Management

    Attitude adjustments need to be made to avoid the high turnover rate currently in place. Seek outside advisors to help turn the company around. Treat all employees with dignity and respect.

    If u are going to take advantage of the Atwil agreement and fire employees within 30 days of employment at least train them, give them a performance appraisal then fire them. Not give bad excuses to make yourselves look better.

    Pros

    Paycheck but under market value. Good folks to work with.

    Cons

    Management has no respect for the employees, little or no training. Benifits are deplorable cheaper to get your own. No advancement opportunities or pay increase in 6 years. 50 hour work week expected for salary managers no comp time. Run dont walk away from here!

    Advice to Management

    Change everything show the same respect to employees that you show clients.

    Pros

    It's a job that keeps you realizing that you should joined the military or gone to college.

    Cons

    This place is dishonest. Do not waste your time working for this place. They will use you and take advantage of you. What other company has upper management post FAKE reviews? ABC Imaging does. You would have better luck and opportunity working at FedEx Kinkos.

    Advice to Management

    Get real. The word is out that you are corrupt and are slave drivers who manipulate people.

    I have been working at ABC Imaging full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some amazingly nice people who work here and are very, very helpful. A few guys in IT, some of the women in customer service positions, a few of the graphics people are just terribly good folks who work for an awful company.

    Cons

    The owner is a tyrant. He is disrespectful, abusive, rude and has no regard for anyone. It's all about image, dollars and his ego. The way he treats his employees has a severe trickle-down effect. Every person in a position of power treats their subordinates terribly. They call each other names, there's a lot of backstabbing and underhanded shadiness. They treat women like dirt, I'm not sure if it's due to the industry being male dominated or the fact that many of the people at ABC coming from countries where women are not treated like humans but it's not okay. There's no performance reviews, no raises, the benefits are awful. There's a roach infestation and nobody cares. They shrug it off like it's normal. There's a lot of nepotism as many of the employees are related, married to each other or from the same country. The gossiping is horrendous. Everyone is playing telephone and by the time the story gets to you it sounds like one of Aesop's fables. The clients treat the employees like trash because they feel empowered to do so by management. The equipment is ancient and they're always cutting corners to get things done instead of just purchasing new equipment. And instead of implementing training programs or hiring quality applicants, they just buy a failing company and cite THEIR accomplishments as ABC's. You will be overworked, not appreciated and underpaid.

    Overall this place is just awful. Very awful.

    Advice to Management

    Take a few management classes. You are the reason the turnover rate is SO high.

    Pros

    The only pro is having a paycheck. If you're lucky, the people you work with might be nice. Two words left.

    Cons

    There is a lot of distrust among the departments and levels of management. There are people put in place to snitch on fellow employees. Employees are treated with no respect. Management are constantly yelling at employees in front of colleagues and customers. Employees are fired without warning and replaced with someone willing to do the same job for ~$10/hour.

    One location has a leaky roof(rains on workstations and machines), no reliable heating or AC, and extremely poor restroom/dining conditions. Rats, mice, roaches, and wasps are very common.

    Some employees have been with the company for many years and have never received a raise. The pay is very low and not even remotely close to industry standards. Many of us believe our time sheets/paychecks are being tampered. Each paycheck is very inconsistent, despite having a regular schedule.

    Be prepared to do the same job/task over again because mistakes are constantly made in all departments(sales/csr/design/printing). Hiring quality employees does not seem to be a priority. Your job description means nothing. You will be doing whatever they want you to do. You will be overworked. There is no question about that.

    Benefits and incentive are basically nonexistent. There are benefits, but you will likely use most of your earnings to pay for them. The only thing I receive from the company besides my paycheck is the $30 dollar Safeway gift card that are handed out at Thanksgiving.

    Every machine is old, in poor condition, and outputs inferior quality prints. Most of the software is very old(over a decade in some cases). PC/Mac workstations are also mostly obsolete.

    I could go on, but I think you get it by now.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees. Pay them better(at least a livable income). Give them better resources. Change the culture of distrust and disrespect. Maybe you wouldn't have so many employees leaving.

    I worked at ABC Imaging (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    None. A steady low income, while you look for something better.

    Cons

    The management doesn't care about you as a person. For them, you are just a robot. Work life balance doesn't exist in their mind. Overtime=you will not receive one. My supervisor didn't have a backbone. He did whatever his boss told him to do. Nepotism is rampant and so is unnecessary office politics and backbiting. There is no room to grow.
    I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy.

    Advice to Management

    None.There is no point in suggesting anything to them. They are not going to listen what you have to say.

    Pros

    Extremely friendly group of people. Those who are not very friendly are few-and-far-between, but those who are genuinely nice and respectful are a mass majority. Definitely a great environment.

    Cons

    The parking in the area is a minimum of $10 for an early bird special (In before 7 or 9 usually), and the parking pass for the company costs $189/mo. So needless to say, you can expect to pay a pretty penny if you plan on driving here. And the traffic is horrendous.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, and ensure that the working environment stays an enjoyable one. The workload here is too heavy to be also accompanied by a stressful work place. Keep your employee's in a positive atmosphere, and they will keep pushing strong for you. A little praise from time-to-time can go a long way.
