    Pros

    in the early years domino was such a great company to work for
    where everyone was listened to,

    Cons

    sadly it became the same as every other company, where junior management
    were more interested in graphs and charts, and pointless meetings, with the information going nowhere
    along with consultants who had no understanding of how to excite, and motivate people in the business,
    thank goodness i left,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of the team leader function, also get rid of the annualised hours,
    if people know what hours they are working, they can plan ahead,

    Great people and attitude, but sometimes less structured than ideal

    I have been working at Domino Printing full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart and motivated people, a global perspective and strong growth history. Works for most manufacturing industries and in most countries. Likes to innovate and improve.

    Cons

    Very short term results focused, can neglect the long term plans and copes badly with longer term changes. Fails to understand how to motivate technical people. Limited resources for technology creation, or other innovations, can be frustrating. You are free to have the vision, but implementation takes too long or doesn't happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This business is very financially strong but It's time to move the structure forward to something that recognises the scale of the business and that managing strategies at a country level is too expensive. Rebalancing of control to regions needed and more resources to allow corporate improvements to be implemented.
    Not everyone is motivated by cash bonuses. Other forms of reward are needed.

    Great people within middle management and lower level positions, lack of senior leadership

    I worked at Domino Printing full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people on my team were great, as well in the office and the field. Good benefits received as well.

    Cons

    Lack of long term vision to grow the product portfolio. Disconnects between senior leadership and workers. Too conservative of an organization. Bad investments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be less conservative, and do a better job in developing the people, and do more than just delivering an overall number back to global HQ

    Good company spoilt by a strong "old boys network" feel and lack of opportunity

    I worked at Domino Printing full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits package(s), Nice environment and some excellent members of staff. Bonuses (If paid CAN be good)

    Cons

    Complete lack of career progression unless your in "the network". Three changes of management in three years doesnt help (applies to my department). A lot of long serving staff members that are next to useless but so entrenched that they are immovable. Salary is "Non-negotiable" at time of employment and low. A blasé attitude to annual performance reviews leads to a global salary review structure (unless your management). Petty management that feel its fun to penalise certain members of staff come bonus time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear the dead wood and look at the good staff you have rather than parachute in short term senior staff!

    I have been working at Domino Printing full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not a bad package overall, but not long term.
    Unofficially flexible with hours (if your in the right department/manager)
    Excellent canteen (sad when thats headline Pro!)

    Cons

    Top/Middle management heavy.
    Managers appear uneducated or uninterested in technology and its workings making it very difficult to develop.
    Some think its a university research company. Driven by paperwork and self validation.
    Limited to no career progression.
    Unbalanced benefits system.
    Instability in workplace due to "mood swing" department clear outs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at what you have and appreciate it. Progression from within not just employing inflated over paid roles that last only a few months causing a whirlwind of destruction.

    Less managers! (ratio is 2:1 in some departments).

    Domino is an incredibly well run company, lacking the commercial tenacity required to take them to the next level

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

    I worked at Domino Printing

    Pros

    A very well run company from the board room down
    Excellent benefits package
    The opportunity for a good work life balance - if you choose to take it

    Cons

    A staid environment where people can stay for a long time without making real contribution.
    Pseudo culture of recognition and advancement of top performing individuals - people get frustrated and exit the business, leaving the organisation with less dynamic individuals who are happy (not everyone) to turn up and do what they have to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become less risk averse and allow true stars of the organisation opportunity to lead and implement change rather than everyone having to follow strong top down direction. A perception is that management promotions happen in the main because they are 'yes' men.
