I have been working at Staples full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Most associates in my immediate sphere of influence are talented & hard-working. There are pockets of innovation. I am able to learn a lot and gain valuable experience. Benefits are decent.

Cons

Career advancement opportunities are limited, even for top performers. Top talent is easily poached and there is a lot of attrition. The culture is a mess, morale is low, and politics reigns supreme. Below average compensation for technology workers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Move to a more performance-based compensation model. Less talk, more walk.

    Pros

    Flexibility in duties, communication from management, information about the company, understanding of personal schedules, they acknowledged those employees that showed in terest for the work.

    Most people have to work in very close proximity to other workers, which made the space a bit tight to navigate when one is performing his or her duties.
