I worked at Consolidated Graphics full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Advancement is available. My experience was positive because I was given flexibility and was able to implement my own plans. I got some great experience, but I don't think everyone feels the same way. In many positions if you are just looking for a job, it's fine. If you are looking for a career, you may need to look elsewhere if you aren't confident in your direct supervisor.

Cons

Employee morale is a complete non-issue for management. The benefits are a joke - ask for more money to compensate, unless you can be on your spouse's plan. Upper management is very mercurial and doesn't communicate well with the rank and file. Extra hours are the norm for many positions.

Advice to Management

I really doubt that the upper management looks at sites like this for advice.

    I have been working at Consolidated Graphics full-time

    Pros

    Gain plenty of knowledge
    Peers are excellent to work with
    Opportunity to get experience for recent graduate
    Friendly work environment
    Good promotion opportunity (mainly due to high turnover)

    Cons

    Horrible benefits (can get cheaper plan outside of company)

    High turnover (Don't get attached to working with same people b/c they'll be gone after less than year)

    pay scale all over the place for same positions (You may be a better worker but may make 8k less than a new employee that don't know squat)

    they pay who the want to pay good.

    Bonuses (they don't tell you that only certain people at the company get them).....

    Advice to Management

    Have a set pay scale and/or pay people on experience and education and not the lowest you think you can get them on for....once a person finds out somebody doing the same job is making 8-10k less and year

    I worked at Consolidated Graphics full-time

    Pros

    My co-workers were great people. Unfortunately, within a 6 month period we were all gone.

    Cons

    Management, management, management. They do not care about employees. Their view is everyone is replaceable and they dont care about you. Turnover rate is crazy high.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees and make it a fun work environment.Care about your employees and maybe they will quit leaving.
