    Pros

    they pay is fair and treatment is with respect. you get to have benefits like medical insurance including dental with a low deduction from your pay check. Co workers are nice in general

    Balanced life is very good. you get time for personal life and work life.

    I also got a promotion after the first year of working for the company and human resource employees are always helpful

    I personally am very thankful to work here

    Cons

    no cons. it is a great company to work for. unfortunately the company is probably be bought by staples by the end of the year and right now future is uncertain

    right now nobody knows what the future will be for the company. That is the only reason I wouldn't recommend applying for a job.

    Staples says that if the buy goes through the headquarters are moving to Massachussets and there will be a presence in Boca, but nobody knows for how long and the size of that presence

    Advice to Management

    no advice. merger iis going to be difficult for everybody

    Great experience, great sales training -- Office adept had been a very good company to work for.

    Cons

    There has not been as money opportunities for advancement in the business division as had been portrayed or anticipate.

    Give a clear vision and direction. Given the rapidly changing office products industry there had to be leadership. Communicate, communicate, communicate

    Pros

    Great company with fair benefits and pay. Compensated well for results and recognized for outstanding performance. Good work-life balance and overall company culture.

    Cons

    The Office Depot / OfficeMax merger has created internal difficulty and required significant training to learn both systems.

    Advice to Management

    With over 50,000 employees, there is a lot of knowledge among lower level employers. There should be a way to communicate ideas and for Sr. Management to sort and review information.
