    I worked at SGK full-time

    Pros

    They work with some pretty big names, so it can be a good platform to build contacts.

    Cons

    Very vague management, you really need to be someone who can make things happen for yourself, and even then, it's hard to get anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers more, good people are walking away out of frustration

    I have been working at SGK full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is ok. Employees are nice.

    Cons

    No loyalty to an employee if you aren't part of a certain clique. Raises are very hard to come by. Benefits could be better. Management has no idea of what is going on or they don't want to fix it.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge the employees that work hard and are loyal and do something about the ones that screw off even if they are friends. Reviews aren't enough. A thank you for working overtime or a holiday would be nice.

    A lot of opportunity for highly engaged high performers. If you're willing to do the work, you can make your ideas happen. Lots of smart people. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Is resource-lean for ambitious growth goals.

    Advice to Management

    On the right strategic track; has evolved considerably in the last 10 years but leadership needs to speed the decision-making process and hold people more accountable.

    Pros

    No pros to list here

    Cons

    The most toxic work environment I have ever worked in. No respect for their employees. A terribly run company. Compensation is way below average and the raises and bonuses were never to be seen.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to and respect your employees more. They are the lifeblood of your company.
