Leadership needs to grow a set or leave.

Project Manager (Current Employee) Delray Beach, FL

ProsLocation - South Florida weather

ConsIneffective senior management - same stuff over and over and over and over. It's like Groundhog Day at OD!!

Lack of direction and no communication of strategy leaves everyone paralyzed - there are not a lot of reasons to work your butt off right now, but we do have some solid team members. If we could cut out more deadwood, we'd be in good shape. Unfortunately, the recent voluntary exit package was ignored by those who really should have taken it - the long-term employees in management positions ONLY because they've been there for many years.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease give us some direction - unlock that strategy you keep talking about and communicate it down to us. Once you do, please hold to it, even if a week or month is not comping as strong as you'd like. Sometimes it takes a while for benefits to kick in - if we hold the line, we'll be successful in the long run.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not the place to be for the young and ambitious.

    Senior Developer (Current Employee) Delray Beach, FL

    I have been working at Office Depot


    Pros: Pay very well. Not very many demands put upon competent… Cons: Very entrenched management in some parts of the company. New ideas are not getting through. Promotions seem to be… Advice to Senior Management: You need to overhaul senior management and find some talent. Also, start a policy of laying off or terminating the lowest 5% or so… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
