    I worked at BluEdge full-time

    Pros

    Lots of freedom to build your own territory, not any micromanaging, company offers lots of flexibility to work with clients, perfect for an established salesman to jump in immediately

    Cons

    Not much support, little communication from upper management, company direction may change rapidly. No sales expectations given.

    Advice to Management

    Clearer communication is key, especially for those newer in their careers. There needs to be a better communication of goals and expectations.

    I worked at BluEdge full-time

    Pros

    The people are friendly and the days go by fast.

    Cons

    Hours are long, working til 6 does not allow balance, the hours should stagger for everyone and switch off weekly. Pay for this position is very low in comparison to project coordinator positions locally and nationally. Work you ragged and expect you to accomplish too much instead of concentrating on your bigger clients and projects

    Advice to Management

    This is a project management position. Not customer service, have someone else worry about phones, shipping and billing, the coordinators need to concentrate on projects to deliver a successful project.

    Pros

    Pizza Friday's in the summer
    Good location

    Cons

    No promotions for employees just demotions and lay offs
    Floundering company
    If it wasn't for architecture companies, they would've plummeted a long time ago
    Pay is crack and everyone complains about not receiving a raise in over 3 years
    They make up ridiculous titles that don't help you progress when it's time to look for real work

    Pros

    Company management is very focused on growth and is aggressively seeking new equipment and technologies to put themselves in a great position to grow. The executives are respected and well versed in their respective areas. Employees are treated fairly and with respect. It's been a fast pace, challenging environment trying to bring in new sales and increase customer opportunities.

    Cons

    I have a long commute.

    Advice to Management

    I look forward to continuing our initial discussions on implementing a new, more robust MIS system, It would be a huge benefit to the company. This would allow us to manage overall and within each division more closely by providing focused metric data. It would also streamline our entire process from estimating to billing resulting in better management tools and increased efficiencies.

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

    Pros

    I have had a wide and varied industry background since commencing my career. I take great pleasure in saying that NRI rates at the top of my list of best places to work. It is an extremely healthy work environment that fosters initiative while at the same time providing me access to the knowledge and experience base of my fellow employees who are always eager to share their wisdom and experiences with me.

    Cons

    I haven't encountered any downsides to working here. As in any environment, it is called work because it can at times be difficult to get everything done in the time frame needed. I am glad that I report to someone who understands that and is willing to work with me to find solutions when needed.

    Advice to Management

    Two thumbs up! I look forward to what ahead in the new year.

    Pros

    Working with National Reprographics Inc. has thus far been a great experience which I cherish & appreciate greatly. Good atmosphere, good office environment & hardworking folks fill the office of New York, the greatest city in the world. A city I am happy to be a part of & hope to stay a part of for as long as I may. My day to day is certainly not easy but rather filled with strict timelines & heavy multitasking will be expected at times. The work might sometimes appear overwhelming, however the goal of each day is to know that no matter what obstacles get in your way, the only way is forward & forward is where I want to go.

    Cons

    - May feel disconnection between executives & every one else.

    Advice to Management

    Continue working with your employees as a team who's hard work positively affects the entire company.
