While we are all glad to finally see QW gone, remember, the beast isn't dead until you cut off the head. They have to get rid of all the bad managers that drove QW into bankruptcy in the first place. Then and only then will the morale finally go in a positive direction for the workers. Nothing will change if they keep the same pinheads in charge of middle corporate management.
There are a lot of hard working QW employees throughout the country that have been treated like crap by management who care more about their bonuses and perks than they do about their employees.
Here's hoping that Quad realizes who they are and gets rid of them ASAP.

Can we start making a list of which Managers and Supervisors need to be AXED first? I don't know if we have enough paper and ink to make a complete list.

It is the Management Staff and direction or lack there of, of the company and it's ideals that drove me out after 21 years of service. Watching quality employees sitting on their hands and cutting hours as they send work to China and India under their customers nose and selling it as QW. Shame on them! I truly believe in Karma. As much as I feel for some great friends that I have remaining at QW, I do not feel bad for the D-Bags that drove what was an amazing company in World Color into the ground. How's 6 Sigma treating you now? You still have to know and master the process and "oh yea" treat people with respect and dignity to succeed. Go Quad!

It would appear that in the wake of losing most of their big business accounts, Quad doesn't or shouldn't have any interest in keeping Schaumburg. Didn't Hudson Yards get a lot of their business?
