    Pros

    No good reasons come to mind.

    Cons

    The left hand has no clue what the right hand is doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't keep taking away and taking away and taking away all the things that once upon a time made this a good place to work.

    I worked at R.R. Donnelley

    Pros

    Good core group of staff, hard working individuals.

    Cons

    Very little assistance from management when needed, higher ups show favoritism towards friends and don't give proper credit to all workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop and think that workers are people too, not just information on a balance sheet.

    Pros

    Decent company -- It is a manufacturing in the 21st century. Although the company is making quite a lot of money, it is not shared with employees (in terms of raises / bonuses).

    Cons

    No real promotions. Benefits are middling to bad...
    There's quite a bit of stagnation at the company (i.e. people been there for a long time and happy to be there).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share some of those profits with your current employees -- Stop buy companies.

    Pros

    You learn a lot about the transportation industry. You can take and wealth of knowledge you learn at Donnelly and get hired just about anywhere.

    Cons

    Salaries now aren't what they use to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A better growth and development plan is needed at every level and not just at the mid-managment level.

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

    Pros

    the people originally hired by Banta are friendly and outgoing, wonderful to work with.

    Cons

    Pay is mediocre at best, impoverishing at worst. Instead of focusing on the plants they do have, they keep acquiring other businesses, and then tell the employees we have no money for things like pay increases to keep with inflation, or bonuses that used to be in excess of 1000/month, and are now lucky to be 100.00 after paying for insurance/taxes. They are progressively discharging anyone who is close to retirement, or earns anywhere close to what they should be for the stressors involved, and it feels excessively like they are purposefully attempting to sink this ship- we had a sudden increase in business and now we have nobody to fulfill the positions required to complete it at 100% quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Screw Management, they know exactly what they're doing. Advice to anyone else: Get out while you still can.
