    Pros

    ACCO was serious about remaing competitive in the cut throat office products market place.

    Cons

    Rather than cut salaries and bonuses at the top they sent work to Mexico and Asia. Directors preference to surprise long term employees with layoffs rather than honor their many years of service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are many good hard working people there that deserve to be treated fairly. Show them that their long term service means something don't give it lip service.

    Pros

    Work was challenging
    People at Manager level and below are trustworthy and committed to excelling to the best of their abilities

    Cons

    Senior Management seems disinterested in listening to knowledge and experience of those who have seen all the changes put in place over the years. Instead they seem to prefer to do it their way applying principles from vastly different businesses and expecting them to work there.
    Too much cost cutting over the years took all the fat but all the meat and some of the bone as well!
    Mr Keller and current direct staff seem honest and committed to improving the business but have had low to moderate success

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen, Listen, Listen
    Listen to the market, Listen to your people, Listen to your customers
