    Pros

    The people, starting pay, and overtime. If you are looking for job stability, this is a good place to work. However, the printing industry is on a downward slope

    Cons

    Some managers do not have a clue. Benefits, salary cap, equipment, and opportunity potential are all poor.

    Advice to Management

    Require managerial courses before you promote managers!

    Pros

    A break that you can split up into however you want to use it. Lunch at your desk. Personally, I hate taking lunches, I think they are a waste of time. I like that I can eat whenever I want and then take a break for a few minutes to step outside.

    Cons

    Only a temp job unfortunately.

    Advice to Management

    Let lower management hire the people they need.

    Pros

    Company is good for someone looking for a long term stable job.

    Cons

    Advancement in position and pay may require to move to other department. Everything is so departmentalized, so it takes long to complete anything.

    Advice to Management

    Open minded to new technology - update internal systems, etc... We offer new services to our customers and try to keep up with the times, but internally we have fallen behind.

    Pros

    Large company with many career directions.

    Cons

    Core business revolves around print products which suffers eroding demand and high price pressure, putting a financial drag on non-print divisions, evn those with high-margins and growth. Benefits are virtually non-existent with no pension, no 401K match, very expensive high-deductible health plans, and annual increases averaging between zero to 1%, regardless of individual performance. Meager severance policy. Salaries not competitive with like positions in other industries. Administration of incentive compensation plans for employees and managers is kept a mystery with zero line of sight between performance and payout. Working for RR Donnelley is essentially a salary-only proposition with moving on to other jobs the only path for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Fix incentive compensation and financial recognition of staff in high-performing business units.
