    Pros

    in the early years domino was such a great company to work for
    where everyone was listened to,

    Cons

    sadly it became the same as every other company, where junior management
    were more interested in graphs and charts, and pointless meetings, with the information going nowhere
    along with consultants who had no understanding of how to excite, and motivate people in the business,
    thank goodness i left,

    Advice to Management

    get rid of the team leader function, also get rid of the annualised hours,
    if people know what hours they are working, they can plan ahead,

    I have been working at Domino Printing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not a bad package overall, but not long term.
    Unofficially flexible with hours (if your in the right department/manager)
    Excellent canteen (sad when thats headline Pro!)

    Cons

    Top/Middle management heavy.
    Managers appear uneducated or uninterested in technology and its workings making it very difficult to develop.
    Some think its a university research company. Driven by paperwork and self validation.
    Limited to no career progression.
    Unbalanced benefits system.
    Instability in workplace due to "mood swing" department clear outs.

    Advice to Management

    Look at what you have and appreciate it. Progression from within not just employing inflated over paid roles that last only a few months causing a whirlwind of destruction.

    Less managers! (ratio is 2:1 in some departments).

    I worked at Domino Printing part-time

    Pros

    Good fun people to work with and relaxed management. There was also a great amount of flexibility in research and investigating any new ideas you may have.

    Cons

    Some highly incompetent members of staff. Company research quality is very low, and uneconomic. the company was also very disorganised and I felt that the research was going in the wrong direction.

    Advice to Management

    Higher better managers and invest in research for the future. Take more time over deciding the direction of the company.

    I worked at Domino Printing full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent manufacturing capability. They try new things when practical, and hold their employees accountable to cost, quality and time.

    Cons

    Top management - including the Board of Directors - is totally out of touch. They make subjective decisions without gleaning input from anyone, let alone top line management (of which I was one). Unfortunately, this lack of commitment affects new product development or fixing troubled product lines.

    Advice to Management

    That’s my point - they don’t accept advice. Oh, one time they did - I was invited to have lunch with the BOD and they asked me my opinion of the dessert.

    I worked at Domino Printing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some advancement opportunities.
    More of a "Career for life" kind of company if that appeals to you, you could also be stuck though if you wanted to leave at some point.
    Good starting package but most likely what you'll stay with. Salary reviews not very generous.
    Generally helpful colleagues

    Cons

    -Extremely undermanned team having a unreasonable amount of duties and workload. That leads to a number of problems that make the job intolerable.
    -Workload is ever increasing as company keeps hiring salesmen constantly. Support team has stayed exactly the same (if not smaller) thus getting more and more workload daily.
    -Company processes make no sense and some are so complicated even experienced members struggle with them. Very hard to enjoy your daily job.
    -Calls come constantly back to back making it extremely difficult to catch a breather, problem solve and learn something in the process.
    -Time micromanagement gets to a point where it will get noticed if you take a 2 minute bathroom break. When on lunch you'll have to keep a constant eye on the clock so as to be back on time.
    -Process extremely slow. The most minor change can take a very long time to happen bringing frustration at a peak.
    -HR seems to be lacking an understanding of a balance between employee and business interests. Next business interests employee interests are swept away.

    Advice to Management

    Be more clear at the interview stage about what the job is like. Don't look to save the slightest penny. When you allow such a policy to affect your employee salaries you operate a high risk low return policy as increasing a salary slightly is nothing compared to the cost of an employee leaving.
    Hire enough people so that they're not glued to the phone with back to back calls all day and end up resenting their jobs, promote an option of breaking up the work day instead of sitting stuck in the cubicle.

    Pros

    The people on my team were great, as well in the office and the field. Good benefits received as well.

    Cons

    Lack of long term vision to grow the product portfolio. Disconnects between senior leadership and workers. Too conservative of an organization. Bad investments

    Advice to Management

    Be less conservative, and do a better job in developing the people, and do more than just delivering an overall number back to global HQ

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and work life balance. Overall a nice place to start your career.

    Cons

    Midsized company with a short term focus and limited growth opportunities. Small industry with many cash strapped customers that are unpleasant to deal with. Plan on moving on if you want to grow.

    Pros

    It's nice to work for a global company with a small U.S. Headquarters, you get to know your co-workers, and the employees are (for the most part) good, friendly people.

    Somewhat laid-back Corporate Culture.

    Good benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of training and cross-functional / interdepartmental cooperation.

    Executives watch each other's backs and seem to care less for the staff; disregarding employee complaints about management and managers, doing the minimal to address such grievances.

    If you rock the boat, your bonus and increases will suffer, and you will be nit-picked with vague/subjective yet no less formal write-ups. Managers (or at least certain managers) will hide behind their shield of authority and manipulate the system to get rid of you while HR and others turn their heads.

    Lots of career growth empty promises.
    Only growth is unilateral.

    Advice to Management

    Get your noses out of one another's bums, listen to your employees, and take exit interviews seriously.
