    I have been working at Mark Andy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for - pay is good and fair, since it's s a base plus commission. They'll make you work hard for your $$, but the potential is fantastic for a hard worker willing to dial the phone! The benefit are great especially the 401K match and the medical insurance. Great company to work for if you're in Saint Louis MO.

    Cons

    Mark Andy is great but their consumables division has some some managerial issue which the company doesn't seen to know how to rectify. Would not recommend print products to anyone, not that department.

    Advice to Management

    Management should listen to the employees when things aren't going right, not just the managers.

    Pros

    As an intern in the IT field, it was a great way to get some general experience working the Help Desk and help provide support for a variety of support roles including software, hardware, and phone support. A supportive and friendly staff.

    Cons

    None, it was a great experience and help build my confidence. We were very busy. Lastly, not a reflection of the company, but a long commute for me.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    Global, far reaching. Good people really want to do the best for their company.

    Cons

    Management is decentralized and the company presently lacks necessary direction and communication to maintain a solid footing. Lack of ability to seek input from seasoned employees show ignorance to what made the company successful for so many years.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved, listen to long term employees. They have been successful before the new owners showed up! The company and its employees are more powerful as an aligned group, not internal competitors and silos.

    I worked at Mark Andy (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company gives you the freedom of booking your own travel. Pay is average and in field service you dont have to live in St Louis to work for them.

    Cons

    Ontime payment of out of pocket expenses os a joke. Expectaitions are ridiculous when they don't give you proper training/tools to do your job, much less even know what training or tools are needed. Company would rather look good and fail than be efficicient and trust the experts in their respective fields.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management- Hire qualified supervisors, not your neighbors or church buddies. Just because somebody can schedule breaks and lunches or has a degree in hamburgerology, doesn't mean they know the first thing about what it takes to travel, install, repair, upgrade, fabricate, live out of a suitcase, deal with flight delays, lost luggage, unpaid company credit card due to flat out refusal of timely reimbursements etc. Creating a hostile work environment by fabricating or extremely exaggerating facts just to look better to the boss will never be good for the company
    Middle management- thouroughly understand the responsibilities of the people who work under you. Spend less time manipulating situations to make you look good, and more time trying to understand the process of what you put your technicians through.
    Accounting- stop with the creative math and make detailed expense report information available while making reimbursements on time, instead of letting weeks of reports pile up then paying 2 or 3 on one check without explaining what expenses you didnt cover, hence coming out of the pocket of the employee.

    I worked at Mark Andy as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mark Andy builds interesting equipment and should be proud of what they do. Their products are in the upper rankings in the field. The plant is in a nice location. Full-time employees have great benefits.

    Cons

    As a contractor, the growth potential doesn't exist. They are treated like step children. No one wants to communicate with each other. The Management is unwilling to give employees (especially contractors) the proper tools to do the job right. They expect top shelf work on a basement work environment. Interns are treated better and given more respect than contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Management: When you bring professional contractors on board...listen to them, pick their brains because they move around and become knowledgeable of other industries that can often improve policies that are in place.

    Pros

    The benefits are there, they give you a lot of time off as well as your standard benefit package. At the same time they are lenient with work life and stride to become an industry leader.

    Cons

    There isn't really room for promotions or personal growth. Other then that the company can be viewed as a standard printing company that may often seem stagnant.

    Advice to Management

    The Company should expand into other areas
