    Pros

    Paid well and on time. Friendly co-workers. Flexible hours if I had something to do outside of work.

    Cons

    Asked me to do a few jobs outside of HR but they weren't terribly hard. Not sure about future as there was a reduction in force occurring at the time.

    Pros

    Stable Employer. Compensation good. Potential to earn amazing commission is given and achievable with hard work. As the leading communications service provider you have now worries of loading your job to the company closing its doors.

    Cons

    Lack of training for entry level sales representatives. A grace understanding of print and communications is key to success. Extra hours needed to succeed.

    Trust

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

    Pros

    This was a great place to work prior to the split into three companies. The people are still great. It's just going to take some time to adjust to the split and new management.

    Cons

    The benefits are expensive and the 401k match has been gone for awhile now. Raises are small and accountability is lacking.

    Pros

    Hour lunch, moderate work load. Decent wage, company holiday festivities, department pizza parties. Checks are never late. They observe national holidays

    Cons

    Some days can be very close, but you are still expected to keep busy. It was a nice office environment, besides being followed to the bathroom by my supervisor Sally

    Advice to Management

    Stop following employees to the bathroom

    Pros

    I've made plenty of friends that I'm still friends with today.

    Cons

    Oh boy where to start. Management sucks. They've been purposely targeting me, preventing me from getting any higher up positions because I question them. High turnover rate because they keep everyone one constant overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe instead of having two 10 hour shifts, how about bringing in a third shift. Instead of just having one department with three shifts and and have everyone else constant 10s. That's why there's such a high turnover rate.

    I have been working at R.R. Donnelley (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Established company (can be a con)
    If you have a good leader like I did we worked on some cutting edge technology
    If your project is doing well they pretty much let you do your thing
    We had a good team that got along great (not all teams are like this)
    Decent work from home policy

    Cons

    Company wide 1% raises over the past 3 years is tough to justify "going over and above"
    Division bonus was less than a 1% (the max is 5% of salary) - why even have it
    Some of the business people can be very tough to work with (luck of the draw)
    Lot of people leaving
    No 401K match anymore

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people and understand when your raises and salaries are below the average.
