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

Pros

People I worked with. Flexiblity and availability of mgmt. Stable company that is trying to counteract a dying industry.

Cons

Company will never see a great growth, but I don't think will tank either. Pay is well below average for job titles.

    I have been working at R.R. Donnelley full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Co-workers who are conscientious about their work.

    Cons

    Inept lower management: dictatorial, condescending, unethical, intimidatory. Quick to reduce work hours for hourly workers when business get slow. 1% raises. No opportunity for career growth (because the industry is dying and people are staying put). Stale atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the fact that the print industry is contracting at an exponential pace. In order to stay alive long-term the industry must transition itself into other communication media.

    I have been working at R.R. Donnelley full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some of the people are great. Close to home. Good hours.

    Cons

    Not having the right equipment . Bad pay increases (however I am personally ok with where I am at pay wise - just have taken on more work and not really seeing the benefits of having done that - 1% accross the board - that is what I mean by bad pay increases.). Unreasonable demands. Have priorities messed up. Absolutely no work/life balance. If I knew than what I know now I would not have taken the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please please listen to your employees. We know what we need to do our jobs yet some in upper mgmt think they know better and it warrants no further discussion period. As far as work/life balance...having managers just flippantly say..well you will just have to work overtime, instead of really looking further ahead is just not the right thing to say. I have watched people come in with great attitudes and desire to learn and do a good job - than after awhile just do not care any more. This is clearly a mgmt issue. Please just have an open mind.
