I worked at ACCO Brands full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

There were no pros working for this org.

Cons

As an outside sales rep working 700 miles away from the office I reported to, I was promised that my telecommunications and internet expenses would be covered, which they weren’t. They refused to pay for parking for customer visits (which could easily add up to $50.00 per day) . I’m still waiting for my required tax forms 6 months after leaving the company.
Furthermore, they don’t know how to run a business and don’t care about their customers either. Working for this company will take your career nowhere fast and as a sales rep, will destroy your reputation.

Bonus structure was completely unachievable which is where the bulk of your income is supposed to come from.

    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.
