    I worked at Taylor Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Environment varies from team to team, but the group I was with was wonderful to work with. Pay was pretty good for that area.

    Cons

    Sometimes if felt like the managerial side and the workers were on different teams working against each other. Advancement opportunities were rare.

    I worked at Taylor Corporation full-time

    Pros

    *Disclaimer: This review applies to Standard Register, which was the company's name pre-bankruptcy*
    If you were in Customer Service, you could move across the "corporate lattice" into other roles in the organization with relative ease

    Cons

    *Disclaimer: This review applies to Standard Register, which was the company's name pre-bankruptcy*
    (1) Pay not consistent with effort: It was extremely difficult to get a raise. There were skilled associates who had worked there for 5 years and more who had not received a raise for the entire duration of their tenure--not even a bump to be consistent with inflation. And the company was consistently loading them with work requiring them to work more than 45 hours per week.
    (2) Technical debt and complexity: the organization had an overabundance of legacy systems that were out of date, complex, and could not be integrated with more modern, inventory management, back-end financial, and front end ordering systems. At one point, the company tried to implement an ERP system, but did not make the appropriate financial investment, and it failed.
    (3) Very wide pay disparity: there were a small number of executive and C-level who were paid a significant amount more than employees at the lower levels who had not received raises for a number of years.

    I worked at Taylor Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back, professional, great OJT, good hours, advancement and very positive working environment. I will be hard pressed to find an employer as good.

    Cons

    Older equipment, mediocre health plan.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the health plan for those who are not in perfect health. Job planning could be a little more efficient.
