    I worked at Quadriga Art full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    New wonderful Fast Computers and Great Co-Workers as well as right off the 6 train. A great chance to learn the workings of a creative Print production Art department.

    Cons

    While the intentions are good, like any small company, their are biases and favoritism. Luckily I was on the good end of that.

    Advice to Management

    When the ship sails, remember the holy mother and she is the one watching over you and your family and friends and pets and homes.


  2. "Moving fast, but bouncing too high…"

    I have been working at Quadriga Art (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    While this company has been around awhile (under a different name)… the recent organizational changes (staff and locations) has given this place the feel of an upstart again. This can be appealing for reeling in talent with fresh skills.

    Cons

    With lower employees, their needs often feel ignored almost as if things plateau with middle managers who don't have much power for input on positive changes anyway to direct above.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the groundfloor folk, they have ideas, sometimes it's convenient to just stop with the middle managers, but often they can be lost too with what's really happening day to day… and no, the old micro-managing paradigm isn't a solution either. A proper platform has to be implemented to make this happen without adding to a culture of fearing to speak out. They really want to care and want to feel like they really are part of something great and not just hear it from above as it just is.

    I worked at Quadriga Art full-time

    Pros

    It is a fun workplace, with a lot of flexibility and kind people working there. Management lets you do your job without being over restrictive.

    Cons

    Tends to be a little crazy. The CEO used to come and sleep on the couch in the lobby. Dogs were allowed to come int the office.

    Advice to Management

    It was a wonderful place to work. I appreciated how much they cared about their employees and trustee individuals to get their own work done.

    I worked at Quadriga Art full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Quadriga Art provides their employees with opportunities to travel to visit clients. The company organizes events to celebrate holidays - annual Christmas party, July 4th BBQ, and offers flex time (summer hours) in the summer months.

    Cons

    No support from management when things go wrong; too many managers; always worried about making a mistake...biggest motivation is to work hard and long enough to avoid making a mistake; poor health care plan

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to support their employees by providing opportunities for growth and more challenging projects; to support their staff when mistakes happen. When employees are given promotions their salaries should be inflated to reflect the promotion and new responsibilities.

    Pros

    Owned and operated by a great family who really care about the business and want to make it a great place to work.

    Cons

    They're making some poor personnel decisions in the leadership ranks in what looks like an effort to reduce costs. but that's driving away some of their best people. There's a lot of turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people, not just one guy who's only skill is cutting costs.

    "Not the worst ever, but certainly not a positive experience"

    Pros

    Easy to get to from many areas (w/public transportation).
    Flexibility and understanding in terms of personal needs (e.g. time off)
    Benefits available
    Excellent middle management leaders

    Cons

    Only 30-minute lunch break
    Worst benefits ever; hardly worth paying for
    Very poor upper management leaders
    Favoritism toward some employees
    Lack of communication in many areas
    Low salaries
    Minimal annual raises (or sometimes none)
    No holiday bonuses (or sometimes just for some people)

    Advice to Management

    Middle mgmt/direct supervisors have been fair, communicative & strong leaders. But upper management consistently shows lack of respect & fairness. Strongly suggest you examine the tendencies toward favoritism. It's inexcusable that employees are aware that some people get holiday bonuses while others don't. If Casual Friday is the only day to wear jeans, then that should be the rule for all, not some departments. If one department has a 30-min. lunch break, then all should. Expand the lunch break. There's no way to do anything in NYC in 30 minutes. Learn to give credit where credit's due. Take note of people's complaints. Everyone agreed that the medical plan options are atrocious. Ridiculously high deductibles vs. overly expensive contributions.

    "great employees that go unrecognized"

    Pros

    * great co-workers
    * business casual attire
    * earned time off
    * team based environment
    * creative environment
    * cool business model (premiums)

    Cons

    * long hours
    * no overtime compensation
    * numerous process/procedure changes without cause
    * business infrastructure needs to be upgraded
    * employees are under appreciated

    Advice to Management

    Management should seriously consider how they treat current employees. Small incentives and acts of kindness could go a long way as the economy & job market pick up. Management should also invest in the proper tools for the business and stop trying to "patch" issues with band-aide solutions and knee jerk reactions. The company has great potential, it just needs an outside consultant and a few technology upgrades to steer it into the 21st century.
