    Not too much commotion, I always feel like I have plenty of work to do and plenty of variety as well. Great co-workers

    Listen to your employees! we're people too. Schedule one on one meetings weekly and there will be great benefits for the entire company

    Pros

    Good solid company to work for with good compensation and benefits. Worked with a lot of wonderful people.

    Cons

    Management didn't train new employees well. New employees were thrown to the wolves and expected to figure it all out on their own. When going to your supervisor to ask a question they would do the work them self and say, "there, it's done". They wouldn't train you how to do it yourself. Probably one reason that division was closed down.

    Advice to Management

    Train your new employees. They will be more valuable to you.

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

    Pros

    Mobility across other teams is possible, good people definitely work at RRD - willing to help out and good team environment for the most part, opportunities to volunteer with workplace Big Brother Big Sister program

    Cons

    Huge company - so when you have a good idea about how you can improve something it usually takes a long time to actually get the approval to make it happen, software programs are not up to date in the translation dept, sales and production teams do not get along that well - they don't work together when coming up with estimates / quotes

    Advice to Management

    If promoting someone to a role with more responsibility you need to also give them a raise... Also, recognize when employees are putting in a lot of overtime and figure out solutions so that there is more a work life balance for them..
