No opinion of CEO

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 Management

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

    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 Management

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


  2. Great place to work while in school, otherwise no chance for advancement or recognition.
