    Pros

    Great operations leadership with Executive insight makes Standard Register a leader in this marketplace.

    Cons

    Sometimes lowest level employees are overlooked for raises. Continual drop in overall market niche leads to constant down sizing and productivity expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the little guy. Lots of folks stuck with the company over the years through several acquisitions without raises or cost of living merits increases.

    Pros

    can't think of any pros

    Cons

    management is extremely rude and disrespectful to employees. very little training. management wanted employees to make suggestions to improve processes there when I made a suggestion my manager was very rude about the suggestion. asking basic questions gets you yelled at. worst company to work for. I wouldn't wish this place on my worst enemy.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of certain managers there and listen to employees when they make suggestions.

    I worked at Standard Register full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are good folks, by and large. Quiet work environment. NYC branch office has very good management personnel. Pay was above average for position held.

    Cons

    Disorganized. Lack of communication between/among many departments. Varied and disparate business data platforms, with lack of communication between several. Ancient accounting data-entry software. Management is slavishly dedicated to a waste-of-time, dysfunctional CRM, which severely impedes the execution of the tasks employees are hired to perform.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that time is money in a business environment. Management should very much more carefully decide which IT platforms are time/cost effective with which to saddle the personnel who do the clerical grunt work. If the time that's wasted could be sold as a commodity, it would be their most profitable product.
