    I worked at ACCO as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    ACCO offers a great career path within the company including a professional and friendly team environment. Working for ACCO includes excellent benefits, compensation and continued training. ACCOs reputation is also highly known for quality professional work with high standards for every client.

    Cons

    The cons could be seen as stressful when new employees are adjusting to working in a very standardized fast pass environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My only advice to management maybe discussing communication between coworkers, regarding the rate and amount of newly employed workers.

    A very successful company, but stuck using old methods with a serious lack of innovation

    Current Employee - Project Manager in San Leandro, CA

    I have been working at ACCO full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    ACCO is a big company, so they get big jobs. The projects are high profile and exciting. The construction group and engineering group are full of solid workers.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional company culture. No vision or direction from executive management. It is a large ship without a rudder. Very adversarial relationships internally among the project managers. Very limited opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company needs direction and a leader. The current management is either unable, unwilling, or afraid to take any decisive action. There is a toxic company culture that needs changing.
