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

    Pros

    401k and Health Insurance is good and OT pay is good along with paid Holiday pay

    Cons

    Every winter I get sick from some cold virus that goes around the Sussex plant. Antibiotics and Sinus Infection plus mandatory OT and forced rotating night shift for what 0.75 I didn't want to work nights so it's forced on you

    Advice to Management

    They don't tell the CEO how bad it really is for the employees in production especially Press

    I have been working at Quad/Graphics full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.
