    Pros

    Employees who care about doing a good job. Overall good teamwork, mid-manager and below. Lots of opportunities to be involved in projects and expand responsibility level.

    Cons

    Environment is too political for the size of the company. Office environment is nice but everyone is in cubes resulting in a lack of privacy. Meeting room availibility is rather sparce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in enabling technologies to improve business processes, reduce overhead and increase customer/employee satisfaction. Provide more tools and space for employees to get their jobs done successfully.

    I worked at ACCO Brands

    Pros

    ACCO 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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Hang in there and continue to develop the brands, things will come around again
