    I have been working at Corporate Express full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Real opportunities for those who lack formal qualification to move further up

    Cons

    A lot of mind games. A lot of clueless managers promoted thru personal relationships. High turnover rate. Bitchy and snobbish culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be able to say "No" to a friend if it's not doing the business any good.

    Pros

    Experience in a large multinational company which is headquartered in the US. Gaining technical skills in large well regarded ERP systems such as SAP and Oracle as well as TM1.

    Cons

    USA work culture is somewhat different to Australian culture. Current management is paying dearly for previous managements mistakes and lack of decisiveness.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Corporate Express

    Pros

    Family environment
    fast paced work from warehouse to office
    community involved
    customer centered at first
    employee activities and input were taken seriously

    Cons

    By end of term, did not like how money was the key to work goals and not customer service or satisfaction. Sending wrong product to customers on purpose and making their ability to return product a challenge so that they would keep and our sales would go up. Very dishonest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember what it once was; customers being happy made it so that they ordered more. When customers are happy, employees are happier, which in turn, makes emploer happier. Return to basics.
