    I worked at Mac Papers full-time

    Pros

    Friendly staff, Jacksonville office remodeled, approachable senior leadership, most days start at 8:00 a.m. and end at 5:00 p.m. without fail, company is established, growing and profitable, bonuses given to some employees

    Cons

    Nepotism rampant, overt sexism and racism exist, inconsistent management, weak benefits and terrible vacation package, Jacksonville location is in an unsafe area of town (no security personnel provided even though scary situations have happened in the parking lot), corporate change is difficult if not impossible, company's interests (including well being and safety) is prioritized before employees, sales team is like a fraternity (very few women, has a "old boys club" feel, promotions/raises are given when kids are born to males), talent acquisition is weak, owner/senior leaders' political opinions are mixed into the culture, very little support for professional development, career advancement opportunities are saved for "insiders" or family members, penalties when even the best workers need to take personal time, inflexibility - no ability to work from outside of the office (sick time must be taken when one could easily work from home), very 1950's feel

    Advice to Management

    Put the employee first in every situation and you'll have a healthier culture. Be more open to change. Challenge the sales team to do more and cross sell. Trust your employees to work from locations outside of the office occasionally or when they have a sick child at home. Be more understanding that employees have personal affairs that sometimes require them to leave during the day. Improve the benefit and vacation package. Improve the safety culture (provide security in unsafe locations, mandate that envelope company employees to wear hearing and eye protection, etc.). Offer professional development and challenge employees to grow. Above all else - eliminate political opinions, sexism and racism from the culture, even if it means the worst offenders (which in some cases are family members) go.

    I have been working at Mac Papers full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are decent, attentive about paying

    Cons

    Having to rely on 10 people to do things you could take care of yourself, Being scolded for asking too many questions. No answer is right. The red tape to get anything includes making a "federal case" out of every step. Antiquated technology causing issues in ordering processes. Disorganized record keeping

    Advice to Management

    Take more sensitivity and personal development courses.

    Pros

    Always looking from within to fill vacancies, many locations allow for career flexibility.

    Some divisions/departments do not have a true training program, making it difficult to know what is expected of you, for new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Define roles, and flow charts. Who reports to who, and who is accountable for other's actions?
