I worked at R.R. Donnelley full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

The people other than management are great. The best if the field, hands down.

Cons

No leadership, backstabbing, crooked managers, poor culture, aging machines, no training, no respect for employees, dictatorship.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Grow a pair, and lead your team. Learn how to manage, not turn the staff against each other.

    I have been working at R.R. Donnelley full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Many people seem to care about their work and their customers. Lots of long-term expertise and management that's risen up through the ranks, taking the open-door policy seriously and always ready to improve. Trying to diversify their core business to remain competitive as the global business environment shifts away from paper and printing.

    Cons

    Bluntly, benefits and pay are not competitive because their core business has a different basis than the industry they're trying to move into; resistance to improving salaries and benefits will result in less-qualified employees and an inability to compete with quality products and service offerings. It's hard to love what you do but to feel like your family is falling behind in real-dollar terms if you keep doing it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the norm in software-industry benefits and salaries and move your technology business units (and maybe even the whole company) towards that model. Huge tech companies have great salaries and benefits and still pay solid dividends... how do they do it?
