Current Employee - Outsourcing Coordinator

I have been working at R.R. Donnelley full-time for more than 10 years

Cons

If you like things static. This might not be for you. We are always evolving.

Former Employee - Art Director

I worked at BrightWave full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

BrightWave had an amazing "family" culture. It was the nicest agency I've ever worked for. The collaboration and teamwork were out of this world!

Cons

BrightWave also had some of the cattiest / gossipy employees—which, includes management. People were afraid of confrontation and simply talking to one another.

Advice to Management

You should have kept BrightWave instead of selling to Ansira. We had something special, but it's gone now. You sold out.
