    I worked at Corporate Express

    Pros

    Mobility, good opportunities for women/equality in the work place, open door management style, open to new, outside the box thinking. Their corporate office was very impressive in terms of innovation, style, cutting edge look and feel. Fresh thinking and innovative "perception" throughout the organization

    Cons

    Top heavy management structure was still in force when I worked for them. Not as fresh thinking and innovative as they would have you believe... it was a great company when the founder was at the helm. Not so much after he turned over the reins to others -

    I worked at Corporate Express

    Pros

    Nice people. Good work environment with a strong team mindset. The workers were very dedicated and hard working. Good balance of work and fun in a small office feeling.

    Cons

    Middle and senior management seemed mostly lost.
    Lots of promises for future growth, none was ever delivered.
    High pressure to meet customer demands with little regard to the resources required. So, everyone got overworked quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the buyout was a good thing overall. Hopefully the Staples management understands how to run a balanced company better.
