Pros

The facility that you work in will make or break your experience at RRD. If you have a good Plant Manager, who looks out for the employees, and shields them from all of the Corp crap, it's a good place to work. If you aren't lucky to have a good Plant Manager it can be pretty miserable.

Cons

Raises are small, cost of living type, so if you work hard there is little additional compensation. Often times there isn't any upward mobility, because management rarely leaves, and when they do they often times don't fill those positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let the local Plant Manager(s) have more control over their facilities, the more freedom they have the better the facility will run.

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

    Pros

    -Flexible work schedule
    -Telecommuting options
    -Pockets of good mid-level managers

    Cons

    -Company notoriously pays between 0 to 2.5% raises over the last several years. 2013 was 1% increase across the board. 2012 was 0% increase across the board. I can't wait for this year!! <sarcasm>
    -Upper level management fails to convey future planning to employees. It seems like the employee is kept in the dark about most subjects and are never included in discussions about the future of the company. Unless the employee is part of some clique, it is nearly impossible to get an idea on where the company is headed.

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

    Pros

    The people that work there including mid level managers were great to work with.
    Decent pay and life work balance.

    Cons

    Since Moore Wallace management took over, went from being top of the line service provider to penny pinching low cost commodity provider.
    Constantly trying to figure how to do more with less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Buying up small printers is not the way to grow your business.
