I have been working at Office Depot full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Tons of opportunity to succeed. Considering the many changes Office Depot is going through, career growth is very attainable.

Cons

Not being a market leader stifles innovation. Unfortunately, Office Depot's culture doesn't encourage calculated risks. We are too focused on maintaining the second position in the industry.

Advice to Management

Tenure should not be a single qualifier for Director level growth. Office Depot has a very traditional, old school approach to identifying and promoting talent.
