    3-4 days off a week. Work every other sunday. Coworkers are great.

    The employees seem to truly care and want the company to succeed. The pay is above average for most markets they are in.

    The print industry is quickly dying and the company doesn't seem to know how to handle the changing atmosphere. Several plants have closed recently.

    I have been working at R.R. Donnelley full-time

    Pros

    Good Co-workers, Stable work environment.

    Cons

    Poor compensation, bonuses, raises, etc. Old school mentality that does not translate to modern times in a positive way (limited work from home, dress code, etc.). Slow to adapt. Lots of "dead wood" employees. Hard to advance if you show aptitude in your current position. Very little perks.

    I worked at R.R. Donnelley (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They seem to have good employee benefits and many of their corporate employees have been there very long-term, even second-generation.

    Cons

    Working in a management position with a company that has been acquired by RR Donnelley is very stressful and somewhat confusing. It appears that most of their processes have been automated with the intention of eliminating actual employees, so getting a live person to deal with is often problematic. Their giant corporation procedures do not work well with local companies that they acquire. The shared services group in India works very hard but it's difficult to get around the idea that those should be American jobs. Guess that's just the way it is when you work for a mega-corporation.
