    Pros

    The sales team is consistently growing which is always a plus. Management restructured the sales process which benefited us as sales reps. Throughout my 2 years of employment, I have been promoted 3 times and still see room for growth. Your hard work is definitely noticed here.

    - Great pay, benefits and vacation
    - Professional and competitive environment
    - Tools provided to succeed in your book of business
    - Room for growth
    - Top of the line facility

    I would recommend working for any of ACCO's departments if your currently in the market.

    Cons

    Some products will eventually develop less of a demand. However, ACCO has a solid product development team and is currently working on new products to expand their customer offerings.

    Advice to Management

    You're moving in the right direction, keep it up.

    Pros

    I learned a great deal from various positions I held. Exposure to numerous facets of the business both internal and external helped me to grow and obtain knowledge I previously did not possess. The people employed there are an asset and great to work with.

    Cons

    The economy has hit the office products industry hard. ACCO has been one to experience such a down turn.

    Advice to Management

    Do not lose sight of the core values that made ACCO. Changes also offer opportunity to reinvent yourself within the marketplace.
