    I worked at R.R. Donnelley full-time

    Pros

    Plant management had a desire to fix the problems

    Cons

    Lack of understanding that their greatest asset was their employees. The Christmas email from the President told us that they would be discontinuing the 401K match. Nice timing. Wouldn't even spend the money to fix the leaks in the roof.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of a constant focus on cutting cost, perhaps focus on increasing revenue.

    Treat all the same (may not pertain to this company as I worked the pr envious company)

    Pros

    Pay was competitive.
    Corporate structure was set up to provide good, up-to-date equipment .
    Three shifts

    Cons

    Poor communication between management & employees, partly due to supervisors for our department based out-of-state. Very little work for overstaffed section.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe direct supervision should be closer geographically, or have more communication directly with employees.

    Pay is decent, but nobody would stay if not for that .

    Respect all employees, maintain the building and machines, have people clean once in a while. You preach safety but the place is not safe.
