I have been working at R.R. Donnelley

Pros

There is good money to be had. When we are not that busy you have the oppurtunity to sign up to have off or the option to stay. While the ecomomy is struggling with some work ethic you have the oppurtnity to get the overtime that you need to get through this tough ecomnical time. We have wonderful managment in our department they will try to work with you whenever you can when life gets hectic. As an example with the swine flu going around you do not get an occurence for taking off if you have a fever. Although 12 hour shifts may be forced, the extra money is supporting my family. I would rather overworked and make personal sacrifices then to be underworked and not be able to provide for myself and my family. In my plant everyone is like a family we take very good care of one another and worry about each other when one is sick or out for personal reasons.

Cons

The only cons to working at Donnelley is only getting 4 days off a month when most people get 8. But eventually you get used to that also.
THrough the years, we have watched our health insurances benefits go down rather then up but we still have better benefits the almost any company that isnt union.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I honestly have no advice to give to our managment at the moment. I personally think every thing is going well.

The lancaster plant is the best.

    Pros

    Plenty of exposure to high level management. Staff is always looking to educate you about their duties and why they are so proud of their work. No endless days by the copy machine. Management actually promotes input from "young minds" as to not fall behind in the market place. Management was very proactive in giving the interns exposure to client meetings and product details. We were treated as valuable assets to the company. I'm sure there are very few billion-dollar companies that have a CEO that takes the time to speak with interns regularly and keep in contact with them after the internship has ended.

    Cons

    Other than the use of IBM Lotus Notes, the company is great. It does seem that they are working to replace the system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upgrade the computer systems and other in-house technologies as soon as it's financially responsible for the company. Many employees are eager to see replacement.
