    "A Very good place to work"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Administrative in Fenton, MO

      I worked at Optima Graphics full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Very Good People to work with in the warehouse, and also purchasing. The majority of the employees seemed very nice and down to earth throughout the production department and also the accounting

      Cons

      none that were bad enough to even list.

      Advice to Management

      Take more time with your employees or temps so that they would be fully trained on what their job is to be successful at that position

      Pros

      Coworkers were enjoyable The work you do is not that difficult

        I worked at Optima Graphics full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        The insurance is the only benefit to working here.

        Cons

        Many of Optima's problems start at the top. Management is often clueless or overbearing given the day. Rules and expectations are unevenly enforced. Work is dumped on productive employees because management is fearful of addressing under performers. Compensation and rewards are little more than token. Expect to see your raise for scoring highly on a year end review to reach 30 cents an hour. This is added to your...

        Advice to Management

        They refused to listen to me in-person, why would they take that same advice from a website?

        I have been working at Optima Graphics full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Learn how to do lots in very fast paced seasonal environment. Overtime during peak season. Good entry level. Learn good multi-tasking skills.

        Cons

        Management doesn’t know what they are doing half the time, blame their employees for their shortcomings, play favorites, only promote in crowd, wont let you leave until the department work is done even if you are all caught up, poor pay for what you are asked to do, high turn over rate.

        Advice to Management

        Put more effort into your employees and they will do right by you. Treat them poorly expect the company to fold.

        I worked at Optima Graphics full-time for more than 8 years

        Pros

        Most of my Coworkers were alright

        Cons

        They sucked every bit of creativity out of you day after day and left you feeling like you were lucky to have the job, “because everyone is despensible here”.

        Advice to Management

        Most all of management needs to be cleansed out of this place, so they can just start over with new fresh ideas and ways. Half of management doesn’t do anything anyway. They’re making a LOT of money and are clueless how to do their jobs, while the “minions” get paid nothing and struggle to work in their old-fashioned ways, when we know better ways, but they just won’t listen to us, because we’re just minions.

        I have been working at Optima Graphics full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        The only pro is the people you meet at this place. Very hard working production.

        Cons

        This company will suck you dry of everything you have. Terrible pay, extremely disrespectful hr, and the company execs have ran the place into the ground. They treat their hardest working employees like crap and will stab you in the back in a heart beat, unless you are friends with hr or execs.

        Advice to Management

        No words of advise this company doesn't care what anybody has to say.

        I worked at Optima Graphics full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        There are some great people who work here. Why they still work here is a mystery.

        Cons

        If you like ridiculously long hours, low pay, having to do other people's jobs on top of your own, and horribly incompetent management, it's the right place for you!

        Advice to Management

        The company needs to get rid of current management (in customer service) and start from scratch. That's the only way that I can ever see anything getting better.
