    I have been working at Harland Clarke full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Things are always changing. We are making a profit despite decline in revenues .

    Cons

    Quick to make decisions without a plan. Movement towards centralized management. If you do not work at Corp office your career growth within company will suffer.

    Advice to Management

    Make a plan for change and execute flawlessly. Right now employees are suffering from poor leadership and execution.

    Pros

    Very organized, great communication between management and staff. Great benefits package, paid training, fun place to work.

    Cons

    Rising cost of products made it difficult for customers to afford products needed. Also, rising cost of shipping was preventing customers from using the protection offered on shipping their orders.

    Pros

    Good place to work. They take care of employees. You will be expected to put out real effort, but will be taken care of.

    Cons

    Some weekend work is expected, but they usually bring in breakfast or lunch.

    Advice to Management

    I rarely saw senior management, they pretty much kept to themselves.

    Pros

    There are no pros to this place. Do not go to the Phoenix plant. Management sucks. No organization.

    Cons

    If you like working every Saturday and being under appreciated with getting crapped on from managers everyday. Then go apply. They have benefits but truthfully it's not worth it. The Phoenix plant has nothing positive. It's actually dangerous. People get physically hurt on a daily or weekly basis. Too much machinery in the plant and the management and upper management does not care about people getting hurt. All they care about is the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all of your phoenix managers, hr and upper management and start over. They are completely useless.

    Decent pay, great co-workers and workplace.

    Growth through acquisitions, shared services and downsizing.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees contributions and find ways to make profits that are not about cutting jobs.
