    I worked at R.R. Donnelley full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Manager was amazing. He was helpful and did not micromanage. Perks were good. We had times where we can leave early, around the holidays. The office is very nice and organized. Had breakfast and lunch in the building you can purchase. Good volunteer programs.

    Cons

    The benefits and pay were not good. You can get paid a lot more outside at a different company. They did not have a 401K match when I was leaving. Not sure how it is now. The health care benefits were horrible as well.

    I worked at R.R. Donnelley full-time

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    Benefits (e.g. no 401K matching, Healthcare cost is very expensive for very little coverage,...); Middle management is below par; Leadership tries to make a place for itself in the Digital Marketing area without understanding that business; Upper Mgt always asks for more, but does nothing to help, except for its quarterly "thank you all, we're the best, but..." communication.

    Pros

    The coworkers are very good and talented people, and don't deserve to suffer under useless management.

    Cons

    There is not one person of color in the Exec Leadership. The old white men steering the sinking ship have never worked anywhere else, and are contentedly making tons of money (lots more than 1% more a year) doing the same old thing. The benefits are terrible. There is no 401k matching. If you work there long enough you get a $20 gift from some crappy catalog that smells like the 1990s. Pay rate is well below market rates across the board. No mgmt communication, HR doesn't exist. Terrible.

    I have been working at R.R. Donnelley full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    *Autonomy - I can come and go as I wish *Stock price is certainly affordable at $1.71 *Extremely easy to predict what this company will do on a daily and long term basis.

    Cons

    *Senior management cares only about the numbers, to the point that it clouds their ability to make solid long term business decisions that will work in the long run. It’s always about getting the financials turned around now...regardless of the mid to long term impact of those actions. Results speak for themselves. *RRD is great at 2 things...closing plants to realize consolidation savings on paper, and taking other risky cost-out actions *No 401k match *The cost of health insurance to the employees is much higher than many other companies for similar benefits. Don’t let their talk track about rising industry health insurance costs fool you. I’m currently interviewing with lots of companies and most of them, even smaller ones, are more affordable. And that is because other companies pay for a greater percentage of it in order to attract better talent. Sometimes the grass IS greener on the other side. *We have one executive leader who brags with pride about RRD being his only employer, and RRD being his dads only employer. And people wonder why RRD lacks vision and keeps applying the same failed approach to business and getting the same flawed results...This exec has a history of disrespectful, nearly abusive verbal treatment of subordinates. His example is being followed at diluted levels by several of his leaders who report to him. Shameful. *Hey, you may think I’m just a sour grapes employee with an attitude issue who wants to get out, but don’t listen to me. Take a look at the investor lawsuits against the BOD for breech of fiduciary responsibility after the spin-off. And take a look at the stock for the past 3 years. Now compare RRD stock trending to the overall market trend for the same period. *We are losing talent at almost exponential rates, making it harder and harder to delight our customers, and lowering the job satisfaction of the remaining employees who have to add that work to their already bloated responsibilities.

    Pros

    There are some great people. As there is no marketing budget / resources, you get to work on many projects.

    Cons

    The corporate marketing team leader doesn't have the experience or the attitude to drive such a team. There is no marketing budget. .. so you have to do a lot of junior things even when you have over 10 yrs of experience. There is no benefit, no 401k match, no perk. The leadership hasn't been given any direction to transform the company on a modern one... so the company is a dinosaur in a fast changing industry... Hence the terrible stock price. They have been letting go people for the past years on a regular basis so on one has been part of the corporate marketing team for over 2 years.

    Pros

    Good for getting job experience to go elsewhere.

    Cons

    Manager bullied and belittled employees and even though it was brought to HR's attention nothing was done. RRD expectation was that work came first before anything else. Benefits were expensive and didn't cover much, no 401K match. Favoritism was used throughout the facility for career advancement and learning opportunities. I would definitely not recommend anyone to work for RRD.
