    Pros

    The environment is relaxed and dress code is not enforced. You have no pressure from supervisor or tight deadlines to complete.

    Cons

    The company is based on favoritism and perceptions from your peers. Supervisors can dictate your performance and outcome, based on false evidence. The company did not foster growth or team collaboration. Every one is isolated and its a game of survival of the fittest.

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing favoritism and give good judgement on performance and social equality.

    Pros

    Very relaxed casual dress code

    Cons

    Micro management, management extremely unprofessional and insecure with new young innovative talent. Pay scale if the year 2005.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to school and learn how to manage today's employees. Treat employees like responsible adults, some have grandchildren. Learn how to manage without having to have an unhealthy control over another adult.

    Pros

    We worked a 3 days on , 3 days off schedule, 12 hours per day in the pressroom, which was great, but seldom got 3 days off and have worked as many as 10 - 12 hour shifts straight. We ate lunch at the press as long as the press was running. Basically a sweatshop in the press room. The press equipment was some of the best around, but it took a beating. They do have the production down to almost a science.

    Cons

    over worked pressman in the pressroom. Little personal time. long hours. Crazy production work to print something that would be in the trash shortly after printing. High turn over. Never enough help in the press room.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employees and listen to what they tell you. Take better care of your employees and cut them a little slack once in a while..

    I worked at Network Communications Inc full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work from home days were the only thing that made the low pay and crap benefits at this company tolerable. Lots of great coworkers, but unfortunately most did not stick around long thanks to the aforementioned compensation issues.

    Cons

    The attitude of management toward employees was downright insulting. A certain higher up consistently put foot in mouth, telling employees that our jobs were a "learning opportunity" and that if we wanted better pay (like cost of living raises, how dare we?) or the opportunity for promotion, we needed to "move on" to another company. (Great advice, glad I took it.) They also had no idea how much money we made and once wondered aloud how someone could live on x amount of money a week- which was substantially higher than the weekly pay of the room full of people to which they were speaking. Managerial cluelessness paired with low pay, awful benefits, and unrealistic workloads ensured that turnover was (and is) a huge problem.

    Speaking of workloads, management consistently failed to understand the day-to-day realities of the jobs they assigned. For instance, the amount of time it takes to do a task was usually not taken into consideration when setting workloads, resulting in situations where a team would have to work 45 hours a week with no bathroom breaks and no time for administrative tasks/email/meetings/etc. in order to meet deliverable quotas, assuming they took the "recommended" amount of time for each task.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. When they point out that the number of deliverables and quality level you are requesting are physically impossible to meet in anything approaching a 40ish hour workweek, listen to them. Invest in your employees with industry training. Value them enough to know how much money they make and don't insult them by implying (or openly stating) that they are stupid for sticking around and wanting to progress in your company. After all, what does that say about you?
