Horrible toxic environment, mandatory overtime, no promotions.
Desktop operator (Former Employee) –  Des plainesApril 10, 2013
One of the worst pre press facilities to ever work at. Everybody that was a great operator has quit or got laid off. The customer service reps don't have a clue, there's no Color Boss, there is no salesmen, and the company is dictated by horrible managers. They have not hired an apprentice in a decade and they will threaten you of not being a team player when you refuse to work 12 hours a day when they laid everyone off. All the work is getting out sourced to China and they always cry broke and that's why there are no raises.
Pros
popcorn thursday, new computers
Cons
no breaks, mandatory overtime, no promotions, and no balance of life and work

Excellent environement for graphic and print specialists
Production Artist (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 20, 2019
I enjoyed working here to get a better perspective and experience of graphic design for print and web media used for a variety of communication channels. I also learned their project structure that teaches anyone how to proceed with each task from concept to final delivery. Highly recommend for new and experienced people in the workforce to try this company out.
Pros
Flexible work schedule, great team support
Cons
Needs updates to software which can put a time restraint on some project deadlines
