    Pros

    The work environment was good, They knew what they wanted and gave you the resources to pursue it.

    Cons

    Printing is a shrinking market so they need less to support current orders.

    Advice to Management

    Basic tools should be reevaluated, CAD packages, the newer medium CAD packages can do as good a job today at a lower cost.

    Pros

    The company was historically great to work for, International footprint and great opportunities. At one point had assembled a remarkable pool of talents.

    Cons

    Could not re-invent itself fast enough in the midst of a media revolution and shrank as the printing industry started disappearing.
    Too much politics in management,

    I worked at Goss International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are great and the work was interesting.

    Cons

    Ship is sinking. It is a dieing industry with a lot of layoffs throughout the years. Management doesn't listen to it's employees suggestions on improvements. The groups within do not work well together, always blaming the other. Only raises given were 2 in 10 years. Unless a manager favors you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, they have been there a lot longer than you and may have good ideas to improve processes. Treating them like people instead of just heads and productivity would improve. Show them you value them and their work.

    I worked at Goss International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Current investors are trying to rebuild and move the company forward.
    It is looking to expand into related fields and provide additional services.
    Even while the company is closing facilities, it is still moving forward by looking for complementary companies that will help to insure its future.

    Cons

    The company is in the Graphic Arts business, selling industrial machinery. With everything going digital, there is less need for new machinery. So future of company could be in question. This has been witnessed by the many recent layoffs and closing of facilities.

    I worked at Goss International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people
    Never got bored. always learning something new
    My job (Tech writer/illustrator) required self-motivation. There was no standard way of getting information, so each day was a challenge.

    Cons

    No job security. Layoffs were always a surprise.
    During the last few years, there were a lot of layoffs. Because there was no clear direction from management, everyone worked hard (with less) but without a positive direction.

    Advice to Management

    Let you employees know what the business plan is. Give clear direction about what needs to be done.
