Great company going through challenging times

Senior Marketing Manager (Former Employee)
Redwood City, CA

ProsACCO Brands is a copnay that is over 100 years old and has many of the old school benefits, like pensions, which are now almost completely gone. A global company with a very strong supply chain network, it is well respected in the office products industry. It is based in Lincolnshire, ILL, about 45 minutes from downtown Chicago. It was created in a merger between GBC and ACCO three years ago

ConsThe office products sector continues to contract, with customer consolidation and an overall decline in spending for office supplies due to the horrendous economic picture now. This has resulted in numerous layoffs as ACCO tries to respond to the changing landscape.

Advice to Senior ManagementHang in there and continue to develop the brands, things will come around again

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
