    I worked at Quad/Graphics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay as temp to hire. Good people. Great advancement chances. Gives felons a new chance.

    Cons

    The company changed its policy and now a conviction on a lesser level or even a theft within so many years cannot be considered for employment. Please let people have a fighting chance. I was four days from crissing over directly. And got laid off. Lots of crappy attitudes with operators and supervisors. Not much positive feedback on the job you're doing.

    Advice to Management

    Be positive motivators. I know your jobs tuff. Be encouraging to new hire. Make it easier for theft or or other felons ro get and keep job. Rehire those who were terminated because of Resource mfg and their own qualifications. Great employees out here!

    Pros

    show up for work You got a job

    Cons

    I don't see no future here anymore. Everything has been taken away even 401k. they no longer match weekly but wait to make a decision at end of year if they are and how much. I don't see no $ being invested in the employees via raises, benefits, etc. They raise the starting pay 3$ for new and that's still the lowest in the area for factories, but operators get 30 cents for the wage compression excuse.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to caring about the employee like the father did that started this company and made a promise to an employee that started with him. Give him 20 yrs and he would make you a millionaire. He kept his word, NOW ...not. The owner is more interested in acquiring new companys instead of staying home and taking care of what he has.

    Pros

    Very nice department, friendly work environment. I enjoyed working with all my co-workers.

    Cons

    It is a very "old fashioned" work environment, which some are okay with. I was looking to advance in my career and learn additional technologies, innovations and creative methods to advance our department. But many in leadership do not want to change methods and processes.

    Advice to Management

    Innovation.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were the greatest. Salt of the earth. Made some lasting friendships and learned a lot from them.

    Cons

    Don't get sucked in by the company slogan. They are definitely not the company who cares. Unless it's the bottom line. And they don't share it when they make it.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like you want to be treated.
