    I have been working at R.R. Donnelley full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've been with RRD for almost 6 years and work in sales. The company is giant so mobility is tangible and they focus on keeping sales employees happy. Their acquisition strategy is robust, they're always looking to scoop up the big opportunities, which only strengthen their value proposition.

    Cons

    Compensation for sales is limitless on the commission payment structure. Compensation for those not in sales tends to be on the low side. This creates a palatable dichotomy between sales and production and individual facilities. I'ts quite common as far as the industry goes though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on sales training and continuous learning programs.

    Equipment is totally up-to-date. Constantly upgraded. Co-workers very professional.

    Hourly workers were not considered the same as salary workers in terms of employment loyalty.

    Job transfer options should have been an option for the workforce reduction. Treat hourly employees the same as salaried employees, do not separate the two.
