    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.

    I have been working at Quad/Graphics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Overtime when you want it

    Cons

    You have to be in "the cool crowd" to be treated like a person. The rules don't apply to them. Cell phones are in abundance and they're all on 'em. They don't do much for the bad attitudes. Pressmen throwing stuff, risking their crew. Pay doesn't come with promotion. Lack of proper breaks for certain positions, against employment laws. Lack of teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Really look at the crews working, not obviously, but casually roam in and look at the severe amount of cell phone usage on the floor. Production crews lose out on money for holidays. Getting paid for 8 hours when they work regular 12 hours shifts and they can't work due to holidays. There's just not sense of respect and teamwork on the floor.

    I have been working at Quad/Graphics part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay. Part timers even get some benefits. Shorter work weeks. Holidays off. Can get as much overtime as you like.

    Cons

    Long 12 hour days. Lots of manual labor. Part timers are restricted from moving up in the company. Raises are minimal for part timers.

    Advice to Management

    Allow part timers to move up in the company. Give good part time employees better benefits. Allow employees to recieve educational aid once they have worked enough hours. Bring back the old 401 (k) plan the way it was.

    I have been working at Quad/Graphics (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are some good opportunities for those in the right positions, which are few
    There are a lot of good people left in this company

    Cons

    The entire company is attempting to change 45 years of habit, sales structure, product offering, etc. over night.

    Executive leadership does not know how to limit or prioritize major initiatives for the company so everyone attempts to do everything at once. This causes a ton of stress on the employees - more work, same or less pay and higher expectations.

    Resources are the first thing to go to reduce costs after a bad quarter

    Advice to Management

    Time to change out some of the old guard and bring in more help. You can't continue to put more and more on the employees who have poured blood, sweat and tears into this company over the last 10 years without rewarding them. Develop a corporate strategy and provide focus and priority through the ranks - get everyone swimming in the same direction.
