I worked at R.R. Donnelley full-time for less than a year

Pros

The hours were flexible, especially helpful for someone going to school during the day. They have shifts all day and night, although the day shifts are reserved for those who have worked there the longest. The training was great (in my opinion, though I noticed others struggled a bit--older folks and those less comfortable with computers) and once trained you are thrown in with the rest. It's stressful at first but the shift leads are very helpful and always ready to share their knowledge.

Cons

The evening/night management was horrible. I felt like hiding whenever the manager came by even though I was a stellar employee. The manager made me feel like he would never be satisfied with your performance--kind of a twisted motivation technique which makes employees feel extremely under appreciated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ease off of the "never good enough, you may be fired tomorrow" tactics.

    I have been working at R.R. Donnelley full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    RRD is a global company and there are several opportunities for advancement if you are willing to relocate. You will have to be patient and put in your time. Decisions are not made quickly.

    Cons

    Being in the manufacturing industry means that money is tight. There are not a lot of perks like PTO, raises, or benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase starting salary. Increase amount of vacation days. Invest more capital in the business to continue growth.
