I have been working at ACCO Brands as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Most of the people you work with daily are great and make the job tolerable. Great new office in a new complex, although the location is terrible. For the most part, there is a very friendly atmosphere here.

Cons

Constant "restructuring" and constantly worrying if your position can be written off at any moment. Location is only nice if you live very close, if you want to go get lunch it's about a 10/15 minute drive to find anything. The company is too big, many higher ups don't interact and probably never will with the newer hires.

Advice to Management

Take more responsibility for a declining business plan. Too many middle management positions were scrapped because of bad planning. I can't tell how much they really care about all of their employees.

    I worked at ACCO Brands as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, good company culture. I enjoyed my time there, however it showed that retail marketing wasn't for me. My managers were very helpful and personable. I would recommend the company to someone interested in this line of work.

    Cons

    I found that retail marketing tended to be more order processing than actual marketing work. Seemed more like Operations Management than real marketing experience.

    Worked with largest drug-store firms such as Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid (even though they were quite demanding, price oriented (as opposed to relationship) and overall unloyal.

    Advice to Management

    You're doning a swell job! Culture was as exciting as I've seen.
