Skilled labor (Former Employee), Thurmont, MD – May 20, 2015
Pros: Pay is good
Cons: Poor management
This used to be a good place to work. Now it is not I would tell anybody I know not to go there. They will make you work lots of OT without ever a thank you. The turnover is getting crazy. They can not keep anybody or get anybody new to stay. Then when they get new worker they put them on there own and then the screw up work. It is sad.

Sales Professional (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – May 18, 2015
Pros: Provides stability
Cons: Could do a better job with employee appreciation.
RR Donnelley is a Fortune 500 Company. I learned a great deal about business and Corporate America during my time there. The management team had great expectations and were driven by results.
I – more... issued detailed, timely instructions on a daily basis. This is key in a highly stressful, fast paced environment . Managing several high profile weekly accounts and magazines was difficult, but rewarding. Successfully managing the start-up of two nationally known weekly accounts was a highlight in my career. I also developed great working relationships with my customers.
Everyday didn't always run as smoothly as planned, which made for some really stressful times. Delivering unpleasant news to customers was always challenging, but necessary. – less

2nd pressman (Former Employee), Durham, NC – May 14, 2015
Cons: old equipped that we were not allowed to maintain properly.
Working at RRD was a learning experience. I was constantly reminded having the job was not my priviledge, but theirs. I watched one of the biggest turnarounds I have ever seen for the position of 2nd – more... pressman. During my first year there felt threatened to hold my position constantly. I only received a 1% raise the entire time I was there. With the exception being when I was hired. I was extremely underpaid and felt left out of the corp group of original employees. I firmly believe I was seperated from the company because of my belief in speaking the truth about the job polcies and management. – less

dying business that cannot attract quality candidates
JOB ACCOUNTANT III (Former Employee), Lancaster, PA – May 5, 2015
turnover is rampant, most employees have experience from 25+ years or less than 5 years, going in you will never make the salaries of the 25+ year group even though the younger generation is more efficient with use of technology and the older group are too set in their ways to change
Full Time Employment (Current Employee), Monroe, WI – May 5, 2015
NA...I dont really have anything to say, my ratings should explain it all. Training is the worst ever, if you even get any training. They do not fire people for anything, so you are stuck working with people that you can not rely on.
Shipping (Current Employee), Florence, KY – May 2, 2015
Pros: no uniforms
Cons: bad benifits, poor division of labor
Always understaffed and if you do a good job they give you the work of the others that just show up. You don,t get anymore compensation than the ones that don,t do a good job either. They expect you to – more... come in on the weekend and work but don,t give you any notice during the week that they will need coverage. Management for the most part just wants you to figure problems out on your own so if something goes wrong they can blame you and they don,t get in trouble. – less

Pros: Very good company to work for
Cons: Not very employee friendly
I have been working at donnelley for 7 years now, and i have to say that my overall experience has been pretty good. I love my co workers and people all around the plant. Just last year we had a huge management – more... change and after that things havent been going so great. A lot of changes were made that the employees are not happy about, thus the morale has dropped drastically. Sometimes i dont even feel like im in the place as before. We just recently had a lay off and the work is coming in very slowly. Donnelley has been very good to me but i think its time for me to move on and explore my other options. – less
I've been there many years. Not a bad place to work. It's just hard to get your hours at this present time.

Pros: Good pay. people
Cons: Healthcare. But I think most healthcare is about the same as everywhere else.
I come in and talk with the current operator and see whats going on. I check the quality of the magazines. I fill out my checklists. Then I get on with the day. I makeready, run, and maintain the machine. – more... Fixing anything that breaks. I have learned a lot of mechanical skills while there. I have learned more about computers also. I have learned how to learned how to manage a 4+ man crew. The management there is questionable. The people are great for the most part. The job at my level can be stressful at times. The hardest part of the job is the physical aspect. Not everyone can stand for 12 hours on concrete. The best part is the people and the pay is a little above average. – less
Overall RR Donnelley is a decent job but definately not a carreer.
Warehouse/Ticketer (Current Employee), Aurora, IL – April 21, 2015
A typical day at RR Donnelley is usually slow starting off. I begin by checking all the mail sorting machines to see what type of mail they are running and if they need tickets. Once enough mail has been – more... sorting the Supervisor then analyses the mail and creates groups to sort. I then print and pass out tickets for those groups. For the rest of the shift i make sure every bin of mail has tickets. I have learned how to operate a mail sorting system. The RR Donnelley management isn't the best but they get the job done. The co-workers are a bit slow and don't take orders very well. The hardest part of the job would be keeping up with all the mail on the sorting machines. The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to learn something everyday. – less

Hand assembly of medical kits, pack (Former Employee), Plover, WI – April 16, 2015
The management for this company shows no compassion or respect for their employees. They see them as just another piece of machinery and show no compassion towards an individual who is having problems or has special needs while at work.
