    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.

    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.

    Pros

    You work independently without having someone constantly watching your back. Easy work. Days go by fast if your constantly working.

    Cons

    Dealing with rude, disrespectful leads. Some leads always complain about needing their product and that they're missing items when they are the ones who lose them. Little to no notice when they require you to stay overtime

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your leads treat the people they manage with respect

    I worked at R.R. Donnelley part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy job with mindless work. Talking to the other workers helps the day go by faster

    Cons

    Horrible compensation with no upward mobility for older workers. Not allowed to sit down unless you are at lunch, which is 30 min. of the 8 hour day. Inconsistent scheduling, some weeks they force you to do overtime, other weeks they call you off

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate and plan the lifecycle of units, manage the schedule better so to not have to rush on orders, be more clear to the warehouse workers about their job, pay fair wages instead of taking advantage of elderly immigrants who have no idea about labor laws, offer more breaks

    Upper management need to put employees first , by bringing back 401 k match, for a start.
