    Current Employee - Channel Marketing Associate in Deerfield, IL

    I have been working at United Stationers full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers are nice, PTO is convenient, 401k is okay.
    They are finally investing some resources internally, but at the expense of letting others go. So we're expected to do more with less which I understand, but when we start sacrificing customer service, that is a problem.

    Cons

    Can't work from home, limited internal advancement. Making investments internally but not always investing in the right way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees! The working world is changing. You need to adapt and let us be more flexible so you can retain us longer.

    Current Employee - Manager in North Chicago, IL

    I have been working at United Stationers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Telecommute in some departments
    -Flexible work arrangements
    -Good crowd of folks
    -CEO isnt holed up in his office- very down to earth.
    -Reviews & promotions are fair
    -Room for negotitation when made offer (external)

    Cons

    -They take forever and a day to make a hiring decision. And if your internal, they just might not get back to you at all. When I came onboard, it was a full month before they decided to hire me. Internally, on the other hand, there are issues everywhere. HR will keep giving you the "Ill follow up" line, when they could just ease your worries and send you an email stating you didnt make the cut. Even longer wait for answers than if you applied externally. My take- yes, the company/culture is GREAT, but if you intend on progressing to a different department entirely, you might run into a snag.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your people informed, or you might lose some valuable talent that can quickly be picked up by another Fortune 500 company...There are 1000's of them. :)
