I worked at ACCO Brands full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Strong legacy people who know the business and care about it deeply

Cons

Knee jerk reaction to results
No customer focus
Upper management not engaged or willing to understand the business

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look for ways to invest in growth rather than cut to meet lower results and therefore "chase the business down"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Lake Zurich, IL

    I worked at ACCO Brands full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I learned a great deal from various positions I held. Exposure to numerous facets of the business both internal and external helped me to grow and obtain knowledge I previously did not possess. The people employed there are an asset and great to work with.

    Cons

    The economy has hit the office products industry hard. ACCO has been one to experience such a down turn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not lose sight of the core values that made ACCO. Changes also offer opportunity to reinvent yourself within the marketplace.

    I worked at ACCO Brands full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work-life balance
    In-formal Dress code (Jeans is allowed)

    Cons

    Absolutely no Talent Management
    Yearly review is just an eye wash. Performance review has no bearing on promotion, career path or salary increase
    Consultants have been empowered by Sr. Management to treat employees poorly
    Have to always be on the look out for lay off news. (who stays back in the company is purely based on who you know and network with in Sr. Management)
    HR is there is to support the company and not employee centric
    Bonus is something you will never receive in full as it is based on company performance (Ask for bonus payouts in the last 10 years)

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
