I have been working at R.R. Donnelley full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Many people seem to care about their work and their customers. Lots of long-term expertise and management that's risen up through the ranks, taking the open-door policy seriously and always ready to improve. Trying to diversify their core business to remain competitive as the global business environment shifts away from paper and printing.

Cons

Bluntly, benefits and pay are not competitive because their core business has a different basis than the industry they're trying to move into; resistance to improving salaries and benefits will result in less-qualified employees and an inability to compete with quality products and service offerings. It's hard to love what you do but to feel like your family is falling behind in real-dollar terms if you keep doing it.

Advice to Management

Review the norm in software-industry benefits and salaries and move your technology business units (and maybe even the whole company) towards that model. Huge tech companies have great salaries and benefits and still pay solid dividends... how do they do it?

    I worked at R.R. Donnelley full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people other than management are great. The best if the field, hands down.

    Cons

    No leadership, backstabbing, crooked managers, poor culture, aging machines, no training, no respect for employees, dictatorship.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a pair, and lead your team. Learn how to manage, not turn the staff against each other.

    I worked at R.R. Donnelley full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of management actually appreciated hard work and effort

    Cons

    Most of senior management was not tuned in to what went on in the day to day drudgery and didn't really care as long as they were made to look good.

    Advice to Management

    Look past labels and credentials to see who is actually doing the work. Sometimes a person with years of practical experience but sans a college degree is the person you want working for you.
