I worked at Staples full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Earned all of my own responsibility, and job was evaluated based on results. Excellent pay and excellent working conditions.

Cons

The company put their Sr. Level Management people first, their Shareholders next in line, their Customers third in line. Very easy to put in the extra effort and hours at the expense of a poor "work-life" balance. That's my fault, I guess.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

After you take care of the Customer, consider your workforce first, then the shareholders.

    I have been working at Staples part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, decent pay, steady hours; they make it easy to connect with co-workers, be yourself, and have fun as long as you do your job.

    Cons

    Don't get me wrong, the pay is decent; but there isn't much room for advancement when staying in your current position. I'm talking 10 cent raises per year. There's also hardly any acknowledgement from upper management when you work your butt off and excel at what you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only thing I'd change about the company is driving the motivational force behind success; not highlighting the consequences for error.
