Business Area Leader/Imaging IT Specialist (Current Employee) – Leesburg, VA – May 13, 2015
Quad/Graphics is the industry leader in print. My previous company was acquired in early 2013 and being brought into the Quad Culture has been pleasant experience. I have the best management support. Depending on your career track there is lots of growth potential and it is usually encouraged. For such a large company, they really make you feel like a person and not a number in my experience.
Horrible Company to work in one of their medical clinics!
CMA (Former Employee) – Elkhart, IN – December 27, 2015
Management does not care if you are an overworked employee, at least in their Quad Med Physician offices. A job that should be 40 hours a week turns into much more because you are so busy, the do not approve additional help for you, the expect you to be receptionist, draw labs, run, strep tests,mono tests, flu tests, scan all documents to patient's charts yourself, do inventory on medications (as Quad Med clinics offer free generic meds to patients and their family), ordering medication and office supplies, pulling medications, entering into the computer, printing out labels, placing labels on the bottles, explaining the medications to patients (there are some that can leave with over 35 bottles of medications as they are given 90 day supply), assist with surgical procedures, set up sterile surgical area, clean up area, have patient sign consents, answer your own phone calls, this could go on and on. However, they expect you to do all of the above while other patients stack up in the waiting room because you are trying to do the job that in a normal clinic would require at least 3 people. Extremely stressful because your home life suffers due to needing to stay late just to try to get caught up-yet they won't pay overtime for that time. You go home exhausted and depleted and your family life suffers because you have so much stress carryover from working at Quad Med. Upper management truly could not care about what issues you are experiencing and do little if nothing at all to help alleviate any issues. If anything, they pile more work on you, making it even harder. They havemore... a huge turnover in LPN/MA's at this company because even though they have such a dedication to the job and their patients, at some point it becomes obvious that nothing will ever be done to help you out-a lot of empty promises or no promise at all. Usually responding 'Well you seem to be getting it all done just fine!' not understanding that is only because we are working well beyond our scheduled hours to just keep our head above water without drowning, yet not paid for the extra time. Seriously-if you went to school to become an LPN/MA, please look somewhere else. This place will stress you out more than the nice pay range is worth. The pay may be good but it comes with a huge price! No appreciation for a job well done. If you do all that is expected of you, they then pile more work on you because they assume you can handle it. As a fellow CMA-please pass this company up and find somewhere that will appreciate you and not take you for granted!! I was a long time and dedicated employee. But it eventually hit a level of frustration and stress level that I could no longer handle. Working at an amazing clinic now-where management cares, the clinic is staffed appropriately, and I actually get home at a decent hour and can spend time with my family-and I get to leave my job when I leave the clinic. With Quad Med, they will call you, email you, etc after you've gone home and expect you to answer and follow through with what they are asking. This is because they have a 24 hour phone system that patient's can call in with questions/concerns/etc and you are pretty much 'on call' without any extra compensation.less
Good pay range
Over worked, no appreciation from management, home life suffers due to the extremely large amount of work, they expect you to do-staying late and not getting paid for working.
Logistics Account Coordinator (Former Employee) – Sussex, WI – December 16, 2015
This company is about as cold as a Wisconsin Winter.
When i first joined Quad, i thought i would be working for this great company, with fantastic benefits, and a chance for a better career. Boy, was i mistaken. The environment is VERY conservative, and they do not hide that. If your single, with no children, co-workers will make you feel like you do not belong. Management and HR are very close, so if you ever have a complaint, be ready for retaliation!
The pay is pretty horrible, in fact, for the industry i work for, the payis 38% bellow the market.
Health benefits are good if you have a eating disorder. The standards are impossible to meet for your health screening, that most people pay a huge premium for their health care.
They will tell you printing is being reinvented, but truthfully, they are laying people off, and are not growing at all.
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – December 12, 2015
I enjoyed working with the people at Quad Graphics. They made sure things were ran smoothly as the twelve hours flew by each day that we worked. I liked that I felted comfortable being there and would have no problem returning if I were to return to Wisconsin anytime soon.
I enjoyed and I am very grateful for the opportunities and experiences that came with my role for an industry leader. The only deflating thing I can say is that Print is a very demanding industry and it's difficult to agree with the "print is not dead and is very much alive" speech from the companies leadership team. But they are giving it their best fight.
32 years of memories at Quad Graphics. 22 years of growing the Saratoga Springs, NY plant to transfering back to Sussex, WI.
Corporate Technical Education Manager (Former Employee) – Sussex, WI – December 2, 2015
A typical day as a manager of technical training involves working with champions to do the following; roll out training programs, develop material to fit the new technology, monitor production to identify barrier, and many other task.
I have learned many things in the last 30 years. The number one thing is how to bring the best out of people.
The hardest part of my job is the passion for perfection. Leading the employees to come up with the path to follow without being to direct.
The best part was the people. Watching them learn from the training to make their job easier. It's great to see when something works.
Printing Press Operator (Current Employee) – Burlington, WI – December 1, 2015
I never had a problem working hard to achieve a high quality product, but in this case I work 3 times harder to produce the same. This company uses inexperienced people for my crew, For example My 2nd pressmen is more interested in his cell phone than learning how to use the color system, My jogger is a different temp everyday so I spend a lot of my time training or doing his job for him and no matter how hard you try to motivate these people management will not back me up. To sum this up the press operator is doing just about everything, this makes the job 3 times harder than if they would get experienced people.
Nurse (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – November 30, 2015
Worked through an agency in their medical clinics. Disorganized! Had new employees opening, closing, and running the facilty the very first time they went there. Codes to get into the facilty were incorrect. Processes were not being followed across the board.
Lead Plant Scheduler (Current Employee) – East Greenville, PA – November 24, 2015
Enjoyable place to work, fast paced, challenging. Ever changing systems which made the work day go fast. Continuous Improvement and Lean Manufacturing processes were followed and made this a safe place to work
Fun work place and everyone was very supportive in my training as a page production layout artist. This was the first time I had produced grocery store ads and the work environment allowed me to lean quickly. I really enjoyed the management.
Plenty of work to keep you busy.
Lack of time to cross train due to Production deadlines.
