    I worked at R.R. Donnelley full-time

    Pros

    I got to work on some great high-end accounts which I enjoyed and helped build a strong portfolio. I worked with some super talented, nice and fun people.

    Cons

    Management is a nightmare, it seems that bullying and gaslighting is part of the culture. Don't expect any equipment, database or software to work.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the red tape, give people the tools they need to do their job and treat them with a modicum of respect.

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

    Pros

    Good coworkers
    Reps truly care about their customers

    Cons

    Upper management only wants to hear from other managers (who do not relay the truth), not employees
    Employees are given promotions based on personal preferance rather than work effort
    Upper management rewards people by what they "think" is going on, but never do enough work to validate what they are rewarding for
    Zero company culture or appreciation
    They'd rather make it harder to do you work than easier

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to spend more time talking to its lower level employees and they need to make sure that employees feel they are being heard. The company is losing valuable, young people because they are not listening to what we have to say.

    Pros

    Not a single one, except there are a few good people left.

    Cons

    Everything, this is the most ridiculous company I have ever worked for. They are so corrupt and management doesn't even care so long as HR or upper management isn't notified of the terrible issues in the departments. Lets just say right now most of my department is looking for better positions after they messed up all of our holiday time by making all of us change our schedules right before the holidays (which was the last straw for many of us).
    -Issues with pay and getting paid on time and correctly
    -Not allowed to take PTO
    -Not allowed to take holidays much of the time
    -Not enough coverage to take breaks
    -Stupid, prideful, and unskilled manager
    -No training (or proper training)
    -No care or acknowledgment for any concerns that an employee my have
    -And this trend continues...

    Advice to Management

    Bring in a 3rd party to clean house, or you will lose everything.
