    I have been working at Quad/Graphics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I would recommend working at Quad/Graphics. There is ample opportunity and your work is challenging. If you produce results you will be rewarded. I would have never gotten as much experience right out of college if I were to have been at another company. Pay is on the average end for administrative employees. Benefits are much better than other companies. All employees in admin start out with three weeks of vacation. Health benefits are great. Recently broke my foot and it cost me a total of $20 for two doctors visits, four x-rays, a walking boot and two sessions of PT.

    Cons

    Stuck in the "old" ways. They're currently making changes on the regular to be more competitive on the work-life side.

    Steady work, friendly co-workers, flexible schedule

    Cons

    Low pay, no more OT, long shifts, no more profit sharing, raises don't come near cost of living increases

    Pros

    Convenient location tenured knowledgeable employees.

    Cons

    This location was acquired by Quad as a result they are not open to processes and procedures that are not their own even if proven winners.Very swim lane oriented. Driving theme doing more with less including training and compensation. Lots of work moving to Poland and qualified long term employees losing their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Training, compensation based on geographic location not based on Midwest pay scale. Offer the perks to all employees example Midwest employees have cafeterias, fitness centers and on site medical (Quad Med). Teach management to engage, reward and recognize valued employees. We are often told "that is the Quad Way" If you insist on identification use name pins the horrible head to toe blue uniforms are depressing . i do believe if Joel Q. Had an opportunity to speak to the average employee and listened to improvement ideas he would be astonished at the waste and lack of cohesive processes that are missing especially in Quality which is non existent. They often talk about retaining employees but unwillingness to compensate accordingly both tenured and college graduates can't afford to work at Quad. So much potential but company is to focused on quick fixes, to many different systems none of which tie together.

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

    Pros

    Other than the people I worked with I can't imagine working there again. Management could care less about the people who actually produce the product.

    Cons

    Lousy pay, benefits cost more for less every year. And raises were a joke. Management only wanted costs cut every place they could.

    Advice to Management

    Show some respect
