I worked at ACCO Brands full-time (less than an year)

Pros

There were no pros working for this org.

Cons

As an outside sales rep working 700 miles away from the office I reported to, I was promised that my telecommunications and internet expenses would be covered, which they weren’t. They refused to pay for parking for customer visits (which could easily add up to $50.00 per day) . I’m still waiting for my required tax forms 6 months after leaving the company.
Furthermore, they don’t know how to run a business and don’t care about their customers either. Working for this company will take your career nowhere fast and as a sales rep, will destroy your reputation.

Bonus structure was completely unachievable which is where the bulk of your income is supposed to come from.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. Opportunity for career advancement if you're willing to relocate.

    Cons

    Keep your head down; risk takers not rewarded. Short-term thinking and knee-jerk reactions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think and plan for the long term.

    No real vision, just a company trying to make quarterly numbers at all costs

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

    Pros

    Strong workforce and a diverse product offering. Strong relationships are in place with many of the customers they serve.

    Cons

    A lot of experience has left the company. Belief that problems can be solved by "working longer and harder". Bare minimum effort to improve employee morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bite the short-term bullet and invest in upgrading operational resources and better aligning all of your business groups to have the same type of organizational structure
