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

Pros

The facility that you work in will make or break your experience at RRD. If you have a good Plant Manager, who looks out for the employees, and shields them from all of the Corp crap, it's a good place to work. If you aren't lucky to have a good Plant Manager it can be pretty miserable.

Cons

Raises are small, cost of living type, so if you work hard there is little additional compensation. Often times there isn't any upward mobility, because management rarely leaves, and when they do they often times don't fill those positions.

Advice to Management

Let the local Plant Manager(s) have more control over their facilities, the more freedom they have the better the facility will run.

    I worked at R.R. Donnelley full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is large and stable and not likely to fold in the near future. They have lots of product offerings so have need for a very diverse team with a wide range of expertise.

    Cons

    Long hours for salaried employees expected. They are used and abused to the point of breakdown then are discarded unceremoniously. Pay is below industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with employees. Let the employees do their jobs without micromanaging. Give them authority along with the responsibilities they are tasked with.
