I worked at R.R. Donnelley full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Forward looking and dynamic subsidiary of RR Donnelley that focused on surveillance of mortgage backed securities. Exposure to the inner workings of some of Wall St's biggest players. Worked closely with a math genius that forced me to up my game significantly in that area.

Cons

Mature business intelligence environment that didn't need much attention, leading to severe boredom.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management was superior in how they interacted with team members, shared information, and provided guidance concerning future directions of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The print industry is becoming obsolete, you need to face this fact. It cannot be efficient when you have facilities scattered all over the country loaded at 50% capacity. Make the big boy decsion and close a few locations. Help those in shuttered locations get an education and start a new career. Your decision to not invest in new equipment nor spend dollars to maintain old equipment cannot be a sustainable business model. Training for tech positions is practically non existent, Years ago newly promoted techs would receive a month of classroom training before being put on a line, now they are thrown out there and expected to pick it up on the job. Listen to your employees, the ones actually doing the work on the factory floor. They are the ones that know what is needed to get the job done in the most efficient manner. Working smarter not harder is the key to success, not blood, sweat and anti-depressants..Stop changing all the company policies to strip employees of their rights and privilidges. If and when this economy turns around and jobs are once again available I believe you will find most of your talent leaving due to the decisions you have (or haven't) made over the past few years.
