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

    Pros

    Good health benefits. A lot of vacation days for tenured employees and no set amount of sick days. Options available for flexible schedule. Managers work with employees who have to come in late or leave early due to life events, such as Dr. appointments. Work hard, play hard,fun environment.

    Cons

    Managers are not well trained so they can't help associates. Employees who don't interact with clients give cross-functional partners a lot of push back. Most of my hurdles and struggles are from within. I have to jump through hoops to fulfill a client request. Cross training is poor, forcing associates to fake it till they make it....or give up. Promotions and raises should be based on performance, not how well you write up an evaluation or fill out paperwork or how much you suck up to your boss.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on making the company appear to be the best place to work and actually make it one. Listen to what associates have to say. Upgrade server capabilities. Train employees so they know what they are doing. Ensure the culture is the same no matter the location. Make advancement opportunities more readily available in remote offices. Spread the wealth so people outside of Livonia are recognized. Hold people more accountable.

    I have been working at Valassis full-time

    Pros

    Valassis has a great employee environment. They strive to create an inspiring environment and a great place to work. The company culture is wonderful.

    Cons

    The big cons would be the lack of career paths for some positions. People who have worked at the company for years and long to advance themselves are often left behind because there is no room for advancement.
