An Insider's view of DFIN

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

The company culture that I love the most about Donnelley is the flexibility and work-life balance. Working in this role with my peers, my leadership team, and within my own team — everyone understands that you have other things to take care of outside of your work.

Aravinda

VP, IT Infrastructure & Operations

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The new employee is paired up with one or two team members to accomplish their first set of tasks and collaboration is encouraged every step of the way. We have other meetings on a cadence and will break into smaller groups when it feels right. For local employees who thrive on face-to-face collaboration, we try to meet in-person when possible.

Gary

Engineering Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Active and honest listening – Contrary to the stereotypical, extroverted sales rep, some of my most effective and insightful client interactions are when I do the least amount of talking, and the most active listening. Client insight is exponentially easier to excavate when you stop “pitching” – and start listening.

Carey

Senior Sales Representative

What is your vision for the company?

Our business plan reflects the change in products DFIN is selling today versus what we sell in five years. DFIN today is a company that offers a lot of professional services that we added software to, but the goal is to become a SaaS company that has services to support it.

Stephen

SVP, Global Head of Engineering
