    I worked at R.R. Donnelley full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice working on site for a big brand

    Cons

    Not big on communicating internal change

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully it's changed for the better since 2014 - but then, it was the blind management leading creative.

    I worked at R.R. Donnelley as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good people for the most part but the office is full of internal politics which happens on the phone or behind closed doors.

    Cons

    Management is full of misguided misdirected communications... this is when they speak which is not often. Be ready to jump in the river without a boat or paddle.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the senior experience you have on staff, Our employees teach us more than we teach them.

    I have been working at R.R. Donnelley (More than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are nice to work with, and they are always willing to help each other out. The days go by fast.

    Cons

    Politics and sucking up will get you far. Hard work will get you nowhere. Stand around and talk all day, and you will be rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in technology. The systems that employees work on are antiquated and are always running slowly.

    Pros

    You will learn a great deal about the industry - Do's AND Dont's.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, you learn the Dont's from leadership of how NOT to treat your subordinates. As long as the bottom line is met, who cares about your feelings - take it or leave it, back to work.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the good productive employees with PAY (like an industry leader should), NOT with MORE work. Address work/life balance (l ike an industry leader should) or those same good employees will continue to leave.

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to earn overtime pay.

    Cons

    Too many hours, too many slackers, insurance is expensive, way too much red tape and politics in corporate structure.

    Advice to Management

    Let your supervisors do their jobs and stand behind them. Hire competent full time employees and not so many low wage off the street Temps who don't care about their job or anybody else's.
