So what's your personal 5 year goals ? Don't worry about the company. Honestly companies like quad hold you prisoner. Printing is dying out. Management is and always been trash. Stop trying to solve the companies problems. Fix your own. Being terminated was the best thing management and that place did for me. Loving life. They don't even give you a chance to attend college. Their schedules keep you prisoner

Check This,
After reading your post you seem to be begging Quad Corp Management and Joel directly to help with unfair and unethical management behavior in your plant. Deosn't it occur to you that Corp executives are the ones that placed and support these managers? I get what you are saying and applaude you for bringing this forward but do you relly think Joel is going to swoop in and save the day? If working at Atglen has gotten worst since Quad took over...well that is by design. The design of Quad Corp leadership. Don't hold your breath on this.

Just thought I'd let people know that I heard there were good paying jobs at Whiting door in Akron, NY if anyone is in need or interested.

yep alot of people from the plant went there. It is a very physical and demanding job but I suppose worth the money. They do have a high turn around. Good luck to all who went there

just got done watchng undercover boss again. Actually gives me hope that there are some good employeers out there. Joel should sit down and take an hour to watch maybe he would learn what real family is about and not just a number.

Former Worldcolor, laid off two weeks ago. If you are operating under the delusion that Quad treats all of its employees equally, let me dispel that fiction right away -- they do not. Legacy Worldcolor -- start your job search now, because it is honestly just a matter of time before your number is up. In Bolingbrook IL, every single promise was broken. This company is very good at believing the lies they tell themselves and instilling a cult of personality that they take to symphonic and operatic heights. I'm actually glad that the ax finally fell. Got a new job about eight days later, and this group of disreputable, paid liars are finally in the rear view mirror.

Repeating: Worldcolor folks have you started your job search? Do it now, do it relentlessly, do not delay.

I worked at a legacy QUAD plant for over ten years working right under the VPs. And I will tell you from my personal experience they are a bunch of hack snakes. I got "let go" and was paid over a years salary to do so I would keep my mouth shut. The money was one thing but the time and the effort I poured into that company was not worth it in the least. Now I make almost twice as much money and I actually get treated like a real person. I just would like to help others not waste their time as well, I learned so much of how not to manage from this company my employees are all happy and thankful they don't have to work in a snake pit like I did all of those years.

The Company expects the acquisition of Brown will enhance the many ways it helps publishers and marketers drive top-line revenues while better controlling their overall total cost of print production and distribution.

I worked for Webcraft/Vertis/Quad for 16 years, with the last year being Quad. After going through three bankruptcies with Vertis, it was a pleasure working with a financially sound company. After 6 months, all in the Direct Mail division soon learned that Quad had NO idea about that business. They proceeded to let go managers with 20+ years of DM experience, and kept their Quad folks with hardly any. All DM sales moved out to SG360, and they will kick Quad DM butt! Glad I moved on!!!
