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

    Pros

    Loved my job, learned an enormous amount of skills to take to my next position, my co-workers were the best, pay was decent and I would have stayed there until retirement if feasible.

    Cons

    Company re-organized and my position was caught in the "workforce reduction" phase so I was laid off. I was told big lay offs come pretty regularly every couple of years and it wasn't based on your workload or your dedication as an employee. Therefore, job security was low and my fear of being laid off finally occurred. One other "con" was the medical benefits provided. My deductible was $9300 and I paid a good amount monthly for my insurance in addition to the extremely high deductible. As a single parent, I found this to be outrageous but it beat the alternative of not having insurance.

    Pros

    The position offered flexibility and provided the ability to demonstrate leadership qualities.

    Cons

    Since splitting into 3 companies, the clear path of success does not appear completely clear to employees. The company is a mere shell of its once significant stature in the industry.

    Pros

    Knowledgeable staff and nice to work with.

    Cons

    The print industry spending less – this company is way behind the digital age and needs to push for more creative work, including work in the digital realm. Pay is terrible, and with less work the team receives less hours – resulting in small paychecks. Benefits are also terrible and continue to get worse every 2 years.

    Pros

    Interesting job with something new every day
    Supervisor/management are approachable and knowledgeable
    Flexible schedules (24x7)
    Pay is decent

    Cons

    LOTS of turnover
    Training is a bit hit or miss
    Atmosphere gets a bit loud and unprofessional at times
    Benefits, raises and bonuses are all laughable

    Advice to Management

    Invest in a strong training department and training materials.
    Provide measurable goals to earn raises. No one even knows how to earn them.
