I worked at Office Depot

Pros

Good name recognition. Some really caring individuals worked there.

Cons

Cronyism is very strong here. Promotions seemed predetermined, even prior to job posting. No innovative ideas. Always chasing competition.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Set strategic plan and stick to it. Understand your strengths and focus on those. Better recognize & position true talent.

    I worked at Office Depot

    Pros

    Independence of work. Pay was good with decent performance bonuses. Office Depot provided a great deal of vendor support and training.

    Cons

    Too many people who didn't seem to care about doing a good job. Office Depot spent a lot of time and money on the show and not enough on substance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Office Depot would do well by streamlining the levels of management and focus more on the employees who interact more with customers.

    The company as a whole needs to re-evaluate itself. They are trying to hard to sell laptops and technology. They should focus on office supplies and services.
