    I worked at R.R. Donnelley full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Absolutely positively with out a doubt NONE..

    Cons

    This company has taken all it can take from its hard working, skilled employees and give it all to the board of directors.. this company should be ashamed of themselves.. most of the general workers are on Obama care and could not afford the outrageous healthcare plan the company offers because the wage is “competitive”. I think this company is in competition of being the cheapest and greediest company in the world..

    Advice to Management

    Take care of you people!

    "Better Than Food Service"

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

    Pros

    Large corporation, so health benefits, paid vacation, and holiday pay come standard and can be gotten and are stable, as opposed to maybe working for a smaller business or a start-up, for instance. Shift work, so good for irregular schedules. As the title says, not food service and largely separated from face to face client interaction, so if you're in retail this would definitely be a step up and lower stress.

    Cons

    No training, no HR engagement, management is absent (if you're lucky) or wholly incompetent. Regardless, there is NO support. No sick time, pay seems to be lower than industry average, facilities are old and it shows. Chronic understaffing and asking people to work overtime or extra shifts. I'm on a (functionally) permanent 50+ hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Get your managers to a retreat or something. Management is a skill, especially personnel management, and your people don't have it. They need training, BAD, and they also need HR support. And HR needs clearer policies that are actually enforced. This place is a lawsuit waiting to happen, especially because your actual good departments just split off to DFSC. Stop keeping your departments understaffed to make a buck, you're going to churn and burn people. Which, huh, might be why you don't invest in training...

    Pros

    Employees are hard working and dedicated.

    Cons

    Printing is a dying industry.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better, it's easier to treat employees fairly than to have them leave and then have to spend time and money finding new employees.

    I worked at R.R. Donnelley full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not a single thing, at all.

    Cons

    This is the single worst place I have ever worked. While the job responsibilities were okay, the work environment was terrible. Constant issues with coworkers creating unnecessary drama and a poorly managed department made for a hostile work environment.

    Management and HR do not care if the work environment is hostile or unsafe, which leads the issues to go unresolved. Reporting issues, such as sexual harassment and demeaning treatment by management is pointless because they ignore it. They claim to investigate, but never bother.

    Management, including top management, from multiple departments spend work hours harassing the female employees and calling associates demeaning names.

    On top of the poor working conditions, the benefits are absolutely atrocious. No 401(k) match, health insurance that doesn't pay for anything, and bad time off policies. They also tell you that they've had the best year yet, every single year, but then tell you that the plant didn't qualify for bonuses. So, there are no bonuses, ever. And, constant no works make paying the bills difficult.

    The pay is just okay, but not comparable to other manufacturing jobs in the area. Constantly losing good employees to other, better local plants who value their employees.

    Also, there is little/no safety training. There's a very short slide show and that's it. There are skids and pallets laying around. People are skipping and hopping around the work area, and chemicals are stored in the same areas where food is consumed. Safety rules are unfairly/unevenly applied, so some people are forced to wear steel toe shoes, while the rule is not enforced for all in-plant employees.

    I have no idea how this place stays in business. Do not work here.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together and start taking employee harassment claims seriously. Try working out departmental issues before they become so bad good employees leave. Get rid of the employees who are concerned with creating strife, rather than letting them remain because they've been there for a long time.
