    I worked at Quad/Graphics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    When I started it was a great place to work. The pay was decent and there was a lot of room to grow. Everything was state of the art. They had a good company culture and it was a fun place to work.

    Cons

    After the owner (original founder) of the company died, it started to gradually go downhill. The original values that the company was founded on seemed to go by the wayside. Employees seemed to be expendable and benefits were being taken away little by little. Salaries/raises became stagnant as well as the attitudes of management. When it came to cutting costs the company would take more and more from the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to keeping your employees..especially the long term ones. They are your greatest asset...not the share holders!

    Pros

    just enough compensation to keep me around , the market will determine what happens in the future

    Cons

    Sub par wages with benefits that used to be terrific, now are kinda poor, 401k match is next to nothing...no job security people with decades of service are dismissed seemingly at random..yet they are concerned about retention .Rules about conduct aren't uniformly enforced , buffoon leads and managers outnumber the very few good ones ,very much like a high school cliché .Like all employers now , you are being watched at all times .

    Advice to Management

    I only give advice to those who ask, believe me they know it all .
