    Great manager and motivated dedicated employees. Good vacation policy.

    Pros

    Employees were loyal and hard-working.

    Cons

    The company failed to evolve with the times, and the business went under.

    Advice to Management

    There are only certain printed items that are sustainable... packaging and certain marketing materials. Everything else is is being replaced by digital formats. Many of us tried to convey this to upper management, but no one listened... and they were bought out by Taylor Corp.

    Pros

    Good people; maybe Taylor will recognize bad top management and clean house - replace those incompetent jerks. One can only hope.

    Cons

    Things really changed for the worse when about 2001 they eliminated 1/3 of the employees. They said then that if your department was performing well you wouldn't be touched. My department had double-digit growth for seven consecutive years but they ripped through us from top to bottom. They even brought in a replacement head manager from Moore whose first act was to do away with our most profitable product. Things have gotten worse from that time long ago ... my position was eliminated in 2014.

    Advice to Management

    Dance with who brung you, i.e., your employees. There's no excuse for the salaries and bonuses you give each other when you "managed" to bankrupt the company and run off so many good people.

    Pros

    Great people that work hard.

    Cons

    Expect you to work your life away without being recognized. Poor planning and upper management. Ever changing and depending on the department you are in you keep spinning your wheels without catching up.

    I worked at Standard Register full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of really great people work for the company- good pay too. Business casual attire- nothing too stuffy or dressy is needed

    Cons

    Stress level. Multiple different systems used to place orders- endless amounts of mistakes made on orders- no way to help the customer stay up to speed on where there order was because he systems and processes that are in place are archaic. Managers are so busy trying to keep SR above water that they have no time for their employees. Management is also so busy that they unknowingly are getting ripped off. There are some employees who do not work all day and pretend to be talking to customers on the phones when really they are just blabbing to random people in the company. There was also a major bully in our department who never was reprimanded because our boss was either blind to it or didn't care because he continued to have "good numbers"

    Advice to Management

    Fix the issues from the ground up- that place is destined to fail right now

    I worked at Standard Register as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of interesting people...other than that, not much.

    Cons

    Doesn't like working with people with new ideas, super political and there are too many VP's.

    No matter, it bit them in the butt anyways.

    Advice to Management

    Give people some breathing room and don't micro-manage everything.

    Pros

    Amazing team members and working with great customers

    Cons

    This place has become a joke. Management is so out of touch with their employees they are rendered useless. Upper level execs have no idea what's going on. Training is an embarrassment in that team members now have to take time out of their already overwhelming workload to train new members. There is no room for advancement, because the head of customer service will keep you in your position.

    Advice to Management

    You shouldn't be a manager if you have no idea how to help your employees, know nothing about the systems they use or how they service their customers.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. GREAT people!

    Cons

    CEO let the company go down the tubes and ended up bankrupt and sold.

    Advice to Management

    Praise your employees
