I have been working at R.R. Donnelley full-time (more than an year)

Pros

I'm sure there are some, but I can't actually think of any. I love my coworkers. Management needs to get a clue.

Cons

Since they bought us out a year ago, everything is going downhill. We've become concerned only with numbers rather than quality or realistic demands. Departments are being over committed, with not enough resources to meet the demands. There is a glaring lack of communication between teams and management, and local management and upper management. The biggest problem is that no one at RRD has bothered to really find out what it is our piece of the company actually does. New hires are based on revenue, but that revenue doesn't come until 6 or more months after the work is done or needed. It's becoming a stressful place to work. When we were a tech startup, it was stressful, but still fun.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn what it is we do. RRD management isn't a presence in our office and they should be.

    I worked at R.R. Donnelley (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people, plenty of opportunities to work on new technologies, continuous acquisitions keeps everyone on their toes. Lot of opportunity to learn on the job. Very complex environment helps refine skills.

    Cons

    Not enough incentives to perform - Average to bad salaries. Not many opportunities to move around different job functions. Respected but dying industry overall - lower margins are putting pressure in all spheres of the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate non-profitable businesses. Invest in leadership development internally.
