    I worked at R.R. Donnelley full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Use to be"The" place to work, great benefits, great insurance, hired only the best of the best, now they hire gang members, and almost anyone can get a job in the bindery,

    Cons

    favoritism, some supervisors covering for some employees that drink on the job,
    if co workers turn them in to supervisor , supervisor will warn the alcoholic employee to watch himself for a while. even found a way to fire 2 really good employees for complaining about the alcoholic buddy

    Advice to Management

    stop showing favoritism, need to move supervisors around to other departments, they become friends with people and they will cut anyone else first who isn't their buddy, they don't have a union so they can cut people that even have 35 years of service before they will cut someone that has only 10 years of service, Definite favoritism shown,

    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.

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

    Pros

    Friendly Environment; Little Downtime; Volunteer Programs; Free books (once a year, that I never read)

    Cons

    Pay Increases are sub-par; Conflicting project priorities (from different sources); I hear they don't treat the LGBT community very well (had a friend that worked there who said this).

    Advice to Management

    You need to improve the quality of life for your employees if you wish to keep them. Being nice is but only half of it. You need to work on project management. You need to increase pay, based on merit (a 1% annual increase is fine, so long as it comes with something else, based on how well we did throughout the year as an individual). I left the position I was in to take a 50% pay increase. Someone else (many someone's, in fact) was willing to pay me 50% more than what you were, for the same thing. There's something wrong with that, and it's not on their end.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Benefits are not up to market standard. Like 401K contributions & Merit Increases. Getting promoted is not very easy since people are in their jobs for long time (like 20+years).
