    I worked at R.R. Donnelley full-time

    Pros

    Large company with wide variety of service and manufacturing offerings.
    Intent of company break-up was to better focus on individual market offerings - the intent was good but execution poor.

    Cons

    Bigger isn't always better. This is an old school company bogged down by "traditional" ways of thinking. Not nimble.
    Break-up has left company struggling.

    Advice to Management

    Get some fresh, positive, progressive management for a shift in culture. Moral is struggling.

    Former leadership team and products marketed in 2010-2013. Teamwork approach during the earlier years and the client's are good.

    New mgmt has no clue about financial services products, accounting, or global markets. They prefer Lower skilled employeees from India whom also do not have degrees to handle client's complex questions

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your client's versus your budget. Understand that client's do not want what you are selling and rather work with your competitors

    Great company to work for!! Work environment is very friendly and management is very supportive!
