    Hello Anonymous-South,
    I see by your review that you are a current employee in Naples Manor, FL. Ennis Inc. does not have any locations close to you or anywhere in Florida. Perhaps you meant a... More

    I worked at Ennis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the employees are nice, general managers are generally friendly, fairly stable job if you work in corporate office

    Cons

    -Management favors men - extreme case of "boys club" to the point that the execs actually invite male employees to golf or play basketball but ignore lower level female employees
    -Old school style of thinking, they don't want to change anything or make it better
    -Corporate location is in the middle of nowhere so expect a long commute
    -No room for advancement or promotion
    -Time off is a joke, only 5 days/year for first two years
    -You will work really hard for little pay or appreciation
    -You will get scolded for not being at your desk at exactly 8:00AM

    Advice to Management

    See cons above. Although I honestly don't think the leadership cares about any of that. It's apparent in how they interact with and treat employees.

    I have been working at Ennis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a paycheck, however, very small.

    Cons

    Terribly managed. Absolutely terrible benefits. Low employee morale. High employee turnover due to the terrible benefits and the way management treats their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Add some real benefits. And hire all new management.

    Pros

    great at scamming investors with empty shell companys

    Cons

    take b&d litho of arizona. was bought by ennis in 2007.
    company was doing about 12 million a year.
    company in 2014 now doing about 900,000 a year.
    they lost all of the customers over the years due to very bad management.
    company is now an empty shell but they pretend that the place is a profit making company.
    trying to keep stock prices up. most of their company's are this way.
    they look good on paper but if go to each of these company's and look them over, you will see a failing model.
    i feel sorry for the investors who will lose when the truth comes out and it all blows up.

    Advice to Management

    cant tell scam artist anything that they don't already know.
