    Pros

    Good benefits package, flexible with time off.

    Cons

    The company reduces company benefits on a yearly basis. The emphasis on following lean processes does not lend itself to a collaborative work environment.

    I worked at Quad/Graphics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a job with benefits. Vacation time isn't bad after you've been employed for a while. Small bonus program for meeting physical activity goals.

    Cons

    They seem to acquire sinking companies, go in and lay a bunch of employees off and restructure everything, or close down plants completely. Health benefits arent good. Cult-like structure. Make you take unnecessary quizzes every month. Lay-off was abrupt, unprofessional and left a terrible overall impression of my experience. Cut tuition reimbursement in the middle of a co -worker's education without notice.

    Advice to Management

    If you really are a "family" then show some actual sincerity and appreciation to your employees. I know this is something rarely seen in an employer these days but pretending to be caring then showing otherwise displays very little integrity.

    Pros

    The work is relatively easy for the money they pay us.
     In house fitness facilities. And medical.

    Cons

    The company is VERY top heavy. With most having no clue what exactly their job title really is.
     They say that they are concerned about your safety but it is all BS. Working in the press room is a very dangerous place to work if you are not aware of your surroundings at all times

    Advice to Management

    Leave your egos at the door before you enter the building and listen to the concerns of your coworkers. Maybe then you would not have such a large turover
