    I have been working at SGK full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Welcoming staff, made me feel comfortable and welcome the first day. Management at my location is very involved and engaged in the daily operations and business processes. There is a very well-defined set of business processes in place that support the entire operation. Employees follow the process, and are encouraged to give feedback to help improve the process.

    Cons

    The physical facility could use some work.

    Advice to Management

    Improvements to the physical space would make many employees happy. They comment about how much they miss their old facility.
