    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.

    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 Was a bit drab and out of date, though not a big deal.

    Bindery - Easy work if you don't mind repetition.

    Feeder (Current Employee) Lancaster, PA (US)

    ProsMost of the co-workers and supervisors are friendly. Fine place to work if you don't mind repeatedly doing the same exact same thing for an entire 8 hour shift.

    ConsWorking in the bindery becomes quite a drag after a few short weeks. The job does not require you to know or learn any specific skills. Most of the time you are doing the same thing over and over, which is loading lifts of product into the bindery machines. Work day is slow because of the mundane work that you are required to do. Not very challenging at all. If you work full-time there is always a good chance that you will be forced to work overtime on any given day. You are required to work every other weekend. Not much room for advancement in the Bindery department. You can become an Assistant Operator and then an Operator, that is it as far as I'm aware.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire a few extra bodies so you don't have to constantly force employees who do not want to work overtime, to work overtime.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Office staff

    Anonymous (Former Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsWork life balance, good colleagues and understanding superior, idea place for retirement

    ConsLimited benefit, poor bonus (few hundred buck even company make a lot profit), poor increment, no career advancement opportunity

    Advice to Senior ManagementSometime the person who speak loudest doesn't mean he is right, pls judge by your common sense

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
