    Pros

    this is a massive company there are locations all over the USA involved with printing magazines and catalogues. they have an employee clinic onsite and an employee gym onsite. there is a cafetaria and food service.

    Cons

    some employees do not speak english and the majority of workers here are extremely rude. you will notice that almost 99% of management are caucasian inspite of the fact that the workers on the floor are about half minorities. the cafetaria lady seemed prejudiced and made me uncomfortable buying food there so for the last few months here i stopped buying food from the cafetaria and food service.

    Pros

    I was a student while working night shift and they were very flexible with my schedule. Co-workers we’re amazing people, they pay more than other companies.

    Cons

    You knew if you were going to work like a day before, so you really couldn’t make personal plans. It is labor intensive and you have to be standing all night.

    Pros

    I worked there for several years. The pay was adequate and the company isn't going anywhere soon. Average insurance, vacation and 401K.

    Cons

    You are expected, no, required to give your heart and soul to this company. Work, home life balance is poor. If your salary paid beware.

    Large company with many opportunities to advance and move around. Breaks groups into small teams.

    benefits are good if you live near a plant. However, if working remotely and no quad facility is close the plans may not be worth it. for me there dental and eye doctor within 1.5 hours of my house.
