    I worked at R.R. Donnelley full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Forward looking and dynamic subsidiary of RR Donnelley that focused on surveillance of mortgage backed securities. Exposure to the inner workings of some of Wall St's biggest players. Worked closely with a math genius that forced me to up my game significantly in that area.

    Cons

    Mature business intelligence environment that didn't need much attention, leading to severe boredom.

    Advice to Management

    Management was superior in how they interacted with team members, shared information, and provided guidance concerning future directions of the company.

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

    Pros

    Exceptionally nice people, wide variety of accounts, great equipment.

    Cons

    Company is a conglomerate that has grown by acquisition so efforts at collaboration between locations, and efforts at innovation seem very fragmented and inconsistent.

    Advice to Management

    phase out individual company identities and unite around core values and more clearly delineated mission. You have tremendous expertise in the companies you acquire, but it is sequestered in too many silos. A more effective co-working system for the different creative divisions would help leverage more innovation.

    Pros

    Great communication with management and staff. Friendly atmosphere where people share ideas and help each other.

    Cons

    With green initiatives in place, printing is not what it use to be. Content is viewed on laptops, tablets and phone device.

    Advice to Management

    Effective communication with employees regarding their performance.

    Pros

    Decent pay
    Decent benefits
    Great co-workers
    Separation package is great

    Cons

    People are not important and are totally expendible. No appreciation for dedication and hard work. They are more interested in buying more companies. It is a shame in today's economy that they are laying people off to outsource work. Morale is horrible. Insurance is expensive.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, everyone genuinely cares about each other and helps out.
    Great place to learn. Wide variety of work.

    Cons

    I'm not being paid what I think I should be, and we stopped getting merit increases two years ago. I can't say everyone isn't paid well. Just from personal experience. Be sure to start high, salary wise, when coming into the company. Their benefits are getting worse next year too (2013), from what I've heard, but I don't have their insurance.

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

    Pros

    Large company with lots of capabilities.

    Cons

    Almost too large, not nimble enough to respond to customer's needs compared to mom and pop competition. Upper management has no long term view, only short term goal of raising stock price.

    Advice to Management

    Have a long term (10+ years) view of the industry and invest there, not on short term gain.

    Pros

    You may have options of moving around the country if you talk with the right person

    Cons

    If a contract gets cut short your time is limited

    Advice to Management

    Teams need a perk, any perk upper management needs to care about the people.

    Pros

    Very talented staff. Flexible on arrival times. Bring your child to work at your leisure, no one says anything

    Cons

    Management is outdated in their knowledge of technology. They do not care about their employees. Favoritism runs rampant. Originally a small boutique agency that does not realize they are now part of a large corporation. Overtime is expected as needed.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to use their skills and talents. Add more managers who are competent and allow them to do the jobs they have been hired to do
