    Pros

    you'll find a few diamonds in the rough, but they won't be staying long. "most: people are nice

    Cons

    -only white 50-year-olds and older in leadership, and few people of color throughout the entire org. Typical midwest white company. -the 50-year-old white people really cling to their titles, so "get in line" -The new CMO does not understand how to staff and support a marketing org, or problem-solve, nor does he comprehend the roles of the marketing teams. His idea of marketing is events and interviews that feature him. -Quad pretends to be an NYC-based company. They are HQ in Wisconsin with a satellite office in NYC, an office the new CMO thought would put the company on the map but it's off the beaten path on a small street. The CMO spent a ton of money remodeling an office space to have a kitchen and a small boardroom on the main level - A vanity project for the CMO. -Startups operate more efficiently and successfully than Quad -product offering is a complete mess. No one really understands the value of Quad for clients.

    Quad is a joke

    Feb 6, 2023 - Material Handler/Forklift Operator in Saratoga Springs, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Easy hire, they're desperate and will hire anyone. They put a guy whose never even driven a car and who horribly failed his fork truck test drive and put everyone in an unsafe working conditions. Guy was driving around with his forks in the air, hit multiple things, he was never drug tested until after riding down the entire side of a guardrail and stickong the forks into a pole. If your a female they will make you retrain and take drug test for a pallet being loaded unevenly and falling off your forks. I had a guy hit my vna truck and fork truck multiple times at least 6 and when I informed team lead or manager they did nothing but yet females will be drug tested for the littlest things. If you want to act like you're manager although you aren't then this place will be for you.

    Cons

    No training, they literally do a fork truck test and then you are on your own without even knowing what their policies and what's allowed or not. Every single female was paid less than males although females had more experience and worked harder. Way under paid for the work duties. Managers pick and choose who the rules and policies apply too, if you're a female you will be one they will stick it too. Extremely disorganized and non stop equipment and computer failures. Not a good work environment because management doesn't manage he's barely even there or around to do anything everything falls on team leaders who are beyond over worked and underpaid. Team lead Kevin is worth so much more than the company gives him credit for. He deserves so much better yet manager gets all the credit for Kevins hard work. Everyone is their own boss and does as they please and tell all the new people to do the crap work well they up their numbers. Don't waste your time, there's a reason companies like quad are always doing mass hiring events and its because they don't appreciate their employees and don't do anything to keep them. Until quad makes changes they'll forever be short staffed because they pay the bare minimum for fork truck drivers and nothing they do makes any sense for someone to make quad a career ,quad is where you go while looking for something better not a forever job.

    Pros

    great team of people in local work group, flexible schedule

    Cons

    major part of my job was not in job description, felt easily disposable as an employee (quad "lost" the client I was on, so they laid off the whole team instead of transitioning to another team). They had us train our out-of-country lab so they could remove us as retouchers and send the work overseas.
