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 Was a bit drab and out of date, though not a big deal.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
