    Good money but a lot of overtime!

    Material Handler (Former Employee) Mattoon, IL (US)

    ProsVery good pay. Most of the people are not bad to work with and three half hour breaks in an eight hour shift.

    ConsVery long hours!!! 12 hour shifts constantly and a lot of working weekends. It leaves no time to spend with your family.

    Large company but recognize talent and focus on retention

    Sales Representative (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA (US)

    ProsI've been with RRD for almost 6 years and work in sales. The company is giant so mobility is tangible and they focus on keeping sales employees happy. Their acquisition strategy is robust, they're always looking to scoop up the big opportunities, which only strengthen their value proposition.

    ConsCompensation for sales is limitless on the commission payment structure. Compensation for those not in sales tends to be on the low side. This creates a palatable dichotomy between sales and production and individual facilities. I'ts quite common as far as the industry goes though.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on sales training and continuous learning programs.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Established culture, nice people

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Logan, UT (US)

    ProsThis particular facility was full of extremely kind, experienced people that were willing to give their own time to help you progress in your position and career. Willing to work with school schedule and family responsibilities.

    ConsPotential limits to growth if not willing to relocate, as people seemed to stay for a long time at the company. .

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a little more time to make the work facility more animated and lively. Was a bit drab and out of date, though not a big deal.

    People and atmosphere are terrific but benefits are awful.

    Information Technology (Current Employee) Warrenville, IL (US)

    ProsForward thinking leadership
    Nice office atmosphere (Corporate)
    Turnover/acquiaitions provides frequent opportunities for diversity

    ConsBelow standard salaries across the board
    Health Benefits as poor as industry offers
    HR support is very inconsistent but generally quite poor
    No financial benefits, although 401K is mentioned as possible but hasn't been restored for years

    Advice to Senior ManagementI am in management with the company and I understand that the poor profit margain of most services leads to running very lean operations. You could pay people their market value but hurt the company or you can pay them what you can get away with and hurt the employees. The only answer is to transition the company to services that support greater benefits to the employees

    Poor benefits and unrealistic work hours indicate corporate mentality

    Project Manager (Former Employee) Palo Alto, CA (US)

    ProsGood core group on staff

    ConsHigh benefits cost to employees; no company contribution to 401K; expectation to be available on-call in addition to schedule. No support for balanced work/life.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt has to be a partnership between management and staff. Time to stop the "you're lucky to have a job" and start valuing the long-term contributors.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    the darkside

    Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    Prosa job, employees can be good to work with.

    Consno security , you are a number, middle management only looks at numbers. I feel sorry for clients. No real sense of team.

    Advice to Senior Managementstart to think about the client and stop looking at just numbers. You need to speak to clients an get their view and just how frustrating it can be for them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
