Pros

They are pretty flexible when it comes to finding a position you enjoy in the company. They have an amazing 401k plan. They provide company paid cell phones for certain departments. Its a great starter job as a stepping stone to gain experience out of college.

Cons

They expect employees to do the work of at least 2 people. Management offers a lot of criticism however none is constructive. Unless your part of the inner circle, forget about advancement or significant compensation. It's hard to take time off because of how understaffed the company is. You already feel like your behind because of all the work you need to do and taking vacation would just add to the workload. You are also required to use vacation days to get paid for days the company closes around holidays.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Actually tell employees you value them instead of making people feel like they can be easily replaced.

    I have been working at Des Plaines Office Equipment full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Family run, relaxed, fun, not so stuffy, I enjoy coming to work everyday, you show potential and they don't ignore it. Take into consideration of the negative reviews, they no longer work here because they didn't fit the job and they are bitter.

    Cons

    Not always professional, kind of gossipy. A few people talk negatively behind peoples backs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication within the departments. Email people about changes. Keep doing it, not just say your going to work on fixing issues then never follow through.
