I have been working at R.R. Donnelley full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

As close to stability as you'll get in this industry.

Cons

"Do more with less" to the extreme. Does not seem to want to reinvest in the equipment.

Advice to Management

Fix or replace some equipment for a change. Quit cutting too deep so the folks that are left aren't overwhelmed and can focus on making this a better company.

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

    Pros

    Good technology, good people, good customer base if you can keep them.

    Cons

    The company is exercising a death wish by trying to run multi-million dollar operations with no management or supervision. Trying to do too much with too little. Everyone is working as hard as they can, putting in tons of hours to try to cover everything. Then the next year it happens all over again with no changes. Long time, loyal employees are getting fed up and leaving.

    Advice to Management

    What didn't work last year isn't going to work any better this year. Listen and apply the ideas of the people doing the work. There is no economy in being understaffed; overtime charges and lack of focus from overworked employees is hurting the business. THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS THE SAME THING YOU SEE WITH ALL PUBLIC COMPANIES - TRYING TO MANAGE FOR THE NEXT QUARTERLY REPORT INSTEAD OF WHAT IS BEST FOR RUNNING AND GROWING THE BUSINESS.
