Very unfavorable to its employees... no 401k match anymore... no innovation whatsoever...

Pros

The pros are your coworkers. You are all in the same boat

Cons

* In a dying industry.. Print.
* Company is always looking to move work offshore at any opportunity.
* Benefits are horrific. They just stopped 401k match. Health benefits are a joke.
* Leadership is such a joke that they move everyone to a new building and they do not even have the forethought to think about not having enough space for parking!

I worked at RR Donnelley in technology in leadership for quite a few years. My entire career has been about innovation with focus on team building. In the years I was there my focus was to build systems to reduce cost and headcount. I watched not only as we closed plants, but also benefits and healthcare were cut. In fact, now 401k match is no longer available. What a joke. There are so many opportunities out there in IT... so many places for talent to go and get compensated fairly. I would not ever recommend anyone in IT ever work for Donnelley... you can go elsewhere and get 30% more money and 1000% better benefits. You get what you pay for RRD, enjoy.

RRD thinks about cutting costs and saving money, upper management pats themselves on the back, then realizes later that they did not think everything through...

Advice to Management

    Pros

    I am still happy to hve a job!

    Cons

    The longer I am part of this company our benefits have dwindled to almost nothing. We were added to RRDonelly through acquisition, not our preference, our insurance is horrible and expensive, we had 401k match suspended, you have to jump through alot of hoops to get a cost of living raise if you are kiss enough butt to get one, but I am sure our upper management will get their raises and bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Do your job. If a part of the business is failing, cut ties and sell it, someone else may be able to turn it around!

    Felt like I was treated as just a number, no sense of loyalty in the company.

    Pros

    I met a lot of nice people there, some of whom I am still friends with.

    Cons

    Starting with shift supervisors and on up to upper management they do not care about the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Dont just take the word of local management. Talk to the employees out on the floor about how things are. When supervisors and managers won't listen to the skilled operators on what is needed things do not get done properly or safely.
