Pros

The health insurance.
Owned by the same family for many generations.
Very honest. They do not lie to you.
Corporate management is very good.

Cons

The local general managers have much autonomy, which can cause problems if he/she is not totally competent.
Some outside consultants are so relied on that they are virtually acting as the general manager and maybe even a department manager.
Many employees are in management positions just because they have been there a long time.

Advice to Management

To local managers--do not depend on an outside consultant as an all-knowing savior. No person is 100% correct all the time. They have their own agendas, and those agendas may not be the same as yours. Have the guts to make your own decisions.

    I have been working at Schurz Communications full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good experience in the print/publishing market. Benefits are decent. People are easy to get along with. Everyone takes pride in what they produce.

    Cons

    Downsizing of offices puts more work and more responsibilities on employees. Being personally effected by those decisions, it’s unreasonable to meet deadlines without overtime work. The print and publishing business has an uncertain future.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees more. They need to be compensated fairly for the work they do. A lot of them aren’t paid enough for the work they do to keep the company afloat.
