Assembler/Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Plover, WIOctober 22, 2018
While the environment was clean, safe, and well organized, the assembly staff was poorly managed from an HR perspective. We were never treated as people but as our respective ID number and given minimal incentive to continue work.
Pros
Paid lunch
Cons
No work incentives, no health care, no days off

Director of Operations (Former Employee) –  West Chester, OHOctober 18, 2018
With so many locations the Management Team has difficulty working one on one with plant leaders.

Pressures of stock price drives decisions and some times makes the Leadership stray from doing what is right.

Case Seal (Former Employee) –  Plainfield, INOctober 18, 2018
Fun place to work. Spacious warehouse and nice community. Public transportation was a plus. You can make good money, because there was always overtime to work.

Billing Analyst (Former Employee) –  West Caldwell, NJOctober 18, 2018
Great working experience - great management.
The most enjoyable time was the end of the month when invoicing was complete. Year end was even better. So sad to leave for maternity leave.

Blood Sweat and Tears
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Grand Island, NYOctober 17, 2018
A typical day was stress from the moment you started your day.
I learned that employees can be dedication to a company for as many as 40 years and with that RR Donnelley does not have your back. You are replaceable.
The atmosphere in the office is depressing.
RR Donnelley in a nut shell as I could write a book.
Pros
Not a word comes to mind.
Cons
Stress in a nut shell

Environmental Health & Safety Professional (Former Employee) –  Willard, OHOctober 17, 2018
The printed the Madonna "Vogue" book and it was held under tight security. It has been the largest place I have ever worked. They had up to 1,600 employees when I started, but then were quickly downsizing.
Pros
Worked as part of a team of four until downsizing
Cons
75 minute commute...

Typical Day
Shipping Clerk (Former Employee) –  Secaucus, NJOctober 16, 2018
A vary relaxed place to work. Yet, there is no opportunity for advancement at this location. It's basically a dead end job. If you're complacent with a job with no future then this is for you.
Pros
No need to clock in.
Cons
No bonuses, No 401k matching, Poor healthcare coverage.

Billing Specialist (Former Employee) –  OrlandoOctober 13, 2018
They are only concerned with the bottom line. Equipment is in poor condition and they refuse to fix anything unless it's completely down and even then they wait until the machine is needed to fix it. I liked working there for the first 10 years but it had become so bad I am retiring early.
Pros
Co-workers location
Cons
Mismanagement very little or no increase in pay.

Decent place to work.
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Durham, NCOctober 9, 2018
As an overnight supervisor, Hours were tough. 12hr shifts, 7pm - 7am. 3 on 2 off. Team I led were awesome, however upper management was a joke.
They are a huge corporation, so very policy and procedure oriented, which is important in this type of industry.
Being in the industry for over 25+ years, if upper management isn't interested in listening to experience, then it's time to move on...
Pros
Great working crew, Well maintained Plant
Cons
Upper management

Not what was promised
Employee (Current Employee) –  Plainfield, INOctober 8, 2018
Fast pace environment with some really good employees. Could be much better if all employees were held to the same standard. Most days are disorganized and chaotic.

Benefits are disappointing for such a large company. Insurance options are poor and the cost is high. No matching of 401K. Annual increase for everyone is 1%.

Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAOctober 7, 2018
Most of the workers at this plant are over worked and under paid. Management is very unfair and unprofessional. On a typical day most of the workers work 12 hours and there is no unity what so ever. A lot of the employees have been employed here for 10 years or more with no advancement to managers or anywhere. They remain put throughout their tenure.

XBRL Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZOctober 4, 2018
Great leadership and opportunity for continuous learning. During peak season, we typically work65 hours a week with the ability to work from home on the weekends. The best thing about working there was the collaboration within the departments.

A depressing workplace
Accountant (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLOctober 3, 2018
The work culture in this company accounting department is terrible. Five Turnovers in the same department in lest than a year. Office space is antique, dirty and depressing. Manager and supervisor scream and curse from office to office in the presence of the HR and Operation Manager. Management do not live by the example create rules and they never follow it. No room for grow and poor leadership skills. One way communication. PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THIS ACCOUNTING DEPARTMENT.
Pros
Job Work/ Life balance ok.
Cons
Offices space old and dirty.H.R simply dont care. Poor work culture.

Not a bad place
Digital Print Operator (Former Employee) –  St. Charles, ILOctober 3, 2018

Pros
3 day work weeks are nice
Cons
Messed up functionality for holidays.
