Employees are only a number
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Clinton, ILOctober 10, 2017
The company runs way too lean. Attempts to make financial numbers by work force reduction of employees. Remaining employees take on many more additional responsibilities with no additional compensation and still expected to meet all deadlines. No training for additional tasks given to the remaining employees.
Pros
None
Cons
Many, Corporate does not care about employees in the production facilities, Will not upgrade equipment, Makes financial goals by cutting employees positions, Raises are very small

Overworked and under paid
PPS (Current Employee) –  GeorgiaOctober 8, 2017
Overworked and underpaid has been the norm for RR Donnelley. Although, it seems like the benefits are great upfront it is an illusion. RRD does not pay for any part of the health benefits and they do not match on the 401K.
Pros
Paycheck
Cons
Lack of good benefits

Take unemployment!!!!
Manager (Former Employee) –  Bolingbrook, ILOctober 6, 2017
Senior Management spends more time on the golf course and in the bar, than in the office.

Junior management live in fear, of being demoted, or fired.

Service levels and pricing are out of whack with reality, and other companies are taking their customers on a daily basis.

The middle management , do nothing and keep their doors shut to avoid conflicts.
Pros
Great colleagues

The job was a very stressful job and very long days with no time off. The shifts were a challenge because you never knew what shift you were going to be working one week to the next.

Worst place I've ever worked
XBRL Analyst (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZOctober 4, 2017
Terrible management and HR. Employees are treated terribly. Executives had no idea of how to do the work and the time necessary to complete jobs. As a result, set unrealistic deliverable time lines and lost a lot of clients.

Very Stressful
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Bolingbrook, ILOctober 4, 2017
Since the sell off and split in October 2016 the workload has increased, job benefits were poor. No bonus structure or reward for strong performers. A constant change in management. RRD strives to produce and worked hard for their customers but constantly pushed for saving without any solutions or tools. They did not invest in up to date technology. Many of the processes are manual and technology was very out dated in operations. They sell them selves as a communication company but use very antiquated software, customers would be shocked.
Pros
Large Corporation
Cons
Poor management, no security

Awesome people to work with
HR Generalist (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 3, 2017
Many great mentors and colleagues willing to help and share knowledge. Not a revolving door -- there are employees that just graduated college to employees that have been with the company for 40 years. There are people from various age groups, races, religions, -- basically all walks of life -- high cultural diversity.

Ability to work from home/remotely for many roles.
Cons
1% increases across the board regardless of effort.

Horrible
Finishing Associate (Former Employee) –  Logan, UTOctober 3, 2017
RRD is one of the worst jobs you can have. There is so much favoritism that you can't advance unless you kiss someones butt. If you mess up at all, that dis qualifies you for a year. Their management is horrible and will lie right to your face. I worked there 6 years with 1 advancement because I wasn't a "favorite". There are FAR better jobs out there.
Pros
Good pay

Shrinking business
Sr. Quality/Process Engineer (Former Employee) –  Grand Island, NYOctober 1, 2017
I was satisfied with RRD in terms of pay, responsibilities, and work-life balance.

RRD use to be a good place to work. The company culture is dependent on where you are located. Overall, it's relaxed and low pressure I would say.

However, because of the decline in the market for printing as a whole, RRD have cut their benefits dramatically. Their health insurance is almost unaffordable with extremely high deductible, poor choices in coverage, no 401k matching, no pension, and high out of pocket expense. It's basically major medical.

I don't have good things to say about management across the board. They do a poor job of communicating and the list goes on and on.
Pros
good work-life balance
Cons
very poor health benefits, no 401k, no pension, poor management
