    I worked at Vertis Communications full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people who worked for Vertis > the people who ran Vertis. Enjoyed the people I worked with. The benefits weren't so bad.

    Cons

    Zero growth opportunity. The company was going nowhere quickly. Pay was terrible and management had zero control. It was a company ran from an office in a different state and they were delusional to think the employees were happy.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on safety and employee moral. Employees were the core of the business. They were never happy. Always expecting the worst. Fair compensation and increased benefits would have increased moral.

    Good job selling this company to Quad - should have sold sooner.
