    Pros

    None...perhaps leaving with your dignity intact would be a pro.

    Cons

    Don't value employees or their customers at all. Purely bottom-line driven in all decisions. Management will outright lie to both employees and customers.

    Pros

    Great people and fun projects.

    Cons

    The company tried many things to adjust to the changing print landscape. In the end none of them worked. I hope that being acquired by Quad Graphics will help then set a steady course for the future.

    Pros

    Exciting to be part of a company during a time of transition.

    Cons

    Management was more interested in diversifying away from print then investing in it. Why would the Board put a former AOL executive of a print company is beyond me.

    Advice to Management

    You shot yourselves.
