I worked at Welch Printing full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

They don't blow lots of money on every new technology. They do get the technologies that make sense with their mission, and actually work. Because of this, they have avoided the fate of many commercial printing companies. They also appreciate smart employees, and are pretty straight shooters. Lots of overtime, which is pretty good for printing, nowadays.

Cons

Can be penny-wise, pound foolish, however. Will avoid paying for simple upgrades and maintenance work until major systems break or customers threaten to leave. Only way to get a raise is turning in your two-week's notice. If they tell you that you will get a raise after your first evaluation, don't expect to be evaluated. Those only happen after you make a mistake.

Advice to Management

Being careful with money is understandable. But pay to maintain what you have to eliminate needless breakdowns and embarrassments. Mechanical maintenance and software upgrades are cheaper than lost customers or reprinted jobs. It also keeps employees from wondering if this is the right career for them.

    I worked at Welch Printing full-time

    Pros

    Ok place to work. Most of employees are engaging. Management was a bit brutal to employees but all in all, it was OK

    Cons

    Not a lot of planning. Never knew what was going to happen day to day. Never knew if we were working on the weekend until Friday.

    Advice to Management

    Management should have more faith in employees and come up with ways to keep mistakes from happening as apposed to once a mistake has happened slamming the employee.


  2. "Toxic Environment"

    Pros

    The company has been around for awhile and does a few things well.

    Cons

    Management does not appreciate employees. They never give positive feedback or raises but are forced to work a lot of overtime at a minute's notice.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better and don't talk so negatively about employees especially when others can hear you.
