I have been working at ACCO Brands as an intern (More than a year)

Pros

Good office culture, everyone works together well, diverse workforce, treat interns well, lots of teamwork. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming, great environment. Really enjoy the work I'm doing. Seems like a great place to begin a career.

Cons

There are a lot of layoffs through the transition of the acquisition of MWV to ACCO. There are a lot of things up in the air, and people seem to not know what is going on. Company morale is kind of low.

Advice to Management

Be more intentional about communicating to the lower employees.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at ACCO Brands full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I learned a great deal from various positions I held. Exposure to numerous facets of the business both internal and external helped me to grow and obtain knowledge I previously did not possess. The people employed there are an asset and great to work with.

    Cons

    The economy has hit the office products industry hard. ACCO has been one to experience such a down turn.

    Advice to Management

    Do not lose sight of the core values that made ACCO. Changes also offer opportunity to reinvent yourself within the marketplace.

    I worked at ACCO Brands full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work-life balance
    In-formal Dress code (Jeans is allowed)

    Cons

    Absolutely no Talent Management
    Yearly review is just an eye wash. Performance review has no bearing on promotion, career path or salary increase
    Consultants have been empowered by Sr. Management to treat employees poorly
    Have to always be on the look out for lay off news. (who stays back in the company is purely based on who you know and network with in Sr. Management)
    HR is there is to support the company and not employee centric
    Bonus is something you will never receive in full as it is based on company performance (Ask for bonus payouts in the last 10 years)
