    Pros

    Excellent resource system and quality employees.

    Cons

    QuadGraphics "merged" ie. bought Worldcolor July 2010 and is making additional layoffs with more to follow. Lots of good people out on the street right now!

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say; I'm sure a number of people benefitted from this merger in an economy that's not favoring printing as we've always known it.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, and good pay for the area.

    Cons

    Recent 10% pay cut and lose of a week vacation. Only get 5 days a year until your 5 year anniversary.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to us, not down to us. Explain the company outlook and future plains to as they happen not after the fact.
