Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Many products and services to sell along with good asset base... People are good in certain areas but everyone seems to pass on the work to others..

Cons

Don't care about sales people any longer.. They think because its RRD that people will buy...Mistake.. Commission plan is horrible and no incentive to sell small orders. They pay on profit not gross sales and the profit number is FICTION... No Salary just commission...

Advice to Management

Get back to basics... It's STILL all about relationships and mgmt needs to recognize this.. If they did, sales would increase... Take care of employees and customers .. profits will follow..

    Pros

    Hard work rewarded with better opportunities (depending on the right manager)
    Great and smart co-workers
    Flexibility (working from home, flex-time)
    Ideal atmosphere to learn

    Cons

    Worst health insurance plan and cost ever (high deductible plan, high paycheck cost.)
    Poor merit increase based on across-the-board rate (1%) instead of actual performance review.
    Miserable bonus ($300 discretionary)
    No 401K matching
    Lousy working environment (tables, chairs instead of professional cubicles)
    No formal training, everything is on-the-job, learn as you go.
    Non-existent HR (miles away in Detroit and New York)
    No recognition (5-year, employee of the month, etc.)
    No company-related events (Christmas party, summer picnic and outings, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Make insurance plan competitive (co-pay plan, lower cost)
    Make merit increase based on actual performance review
    Improve bonus to salary percentage (not fixed amount)
    Have substantial 401K matching
    Invest in formal technical training.
    Have an in-house HR on every RRD location.

    I worked at R.R. Donnelley

    Pros

    I was positioned at the office in Bolingbrook. The surrounding area was an overall nice atmosphere. The building was clean, and I meet some nice people while working for R.R. Donnelley.

    Cons

    Long Hours, Bad management, horrible training. Lack of communication was my biggest downfall.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to do your job so that your co-workers can do theirs. Have better training, and less stress.
