Former Employee - Leadership Development Program Associate in Saint Louis, MO (US)
Former Employee - Leadership Development Program Associate in Saint Louis, MO (US)

I worked at Consolidated Graphics full-time (less than an year)

Pros

I was able to learn about several aspects and be a part of several different departments in a short period of time.

Cons

I had to change positions four times in less than a two month period. In the program, you're only supposed to rotate every 3-4 months. I was constantly having to adapt to new situations (which is good experience but stressful).

    Pros

    -You work with high profile clients and develop great professional skills and networks.
    -Put right into the fire to learn while you are working, gaining knowledge about the ins and outs of a printing/marketing company
    -Pushing technology in an old industry so lots of opportunity in tech field and headed into a good direction
    -LDP is evolving and most of management continues to improve the program
    -Opportunity is there for growth and climbing the corporate ladder but must sacrifice a lot of time and must travel at months at a time

    Cons

    -Limited field for interested growth, hard to keep young driven professionals excited
    -Depending on which company, rotations can be too long and boring
    -Very sales minded of course, seems like only certain candidates with great connections with a natural-binded client can be promoted to a high management position
    -work extremely long hours especially those who volunteer for peak seasons with extra comp.
    -low retention rate has been proven year after year - not a good sign
    -very low compensation for the work you put in - at first its not too bad until you realize how much money you are making for the company and see none of it come to you. Pay is equal throughout the companies in each state so for some like CA it would be harder than others in different states

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better yearly reviews for associates, more opportunities for remote programs
    Overall a solid place to start your work experience.
