    I have been working at ACCO Brands full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Have some good companies under their umbrella, Kensington, Day-Timer (etc.)
    Took care of employees as far as reimbursing them after mandatory pay cuts in 2009 and also did the right thing as far as taking care of employees during layoffs. Have some good products and should do well if they can maintain domestic sales while expanding into emerging markets.

    Cons

    Have some dated products and are out of touch with a lot of products they make. Do not invest enough back into subsidiary companies and have allowed a lot of business to disappear to competitors. Outsourcing everything.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at recent business you have lost and see what you can do to get it back. Improving business organiztion, product knowledge and understanding of the competiton should be high priorities.


  2. "No real vision, just a company trying to make quarterly numbers at all costs"

    I have been working at ACCO Brands full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Strong workforce and a diverse product offering. Strong relationships are in place with many of the customers they serve.

    Cons

    A lot of experience has left the company. Belief that problems can be solved by "working longer and harder". Bare minimum effort to improve employee morale

    Advice to Management

    Bite the short-term bullet and invest in upgrading operational resources and better aligning all of your business groups to have the same type of organizational structure
