    I worked at Office Depot

    Pros

    If you just need a paycheck and don't care what kind of work you are doing then this is the job. The people who support the organization care about customers, but management is only worried about the bottom line and in turn alienate those who care about sales, customers, and building relationships.

    Cons

    The management has no clear idea about employee retention. Mid and upper level managers are only worried about themselves and have no great understanding to how to build a sales team. This organization has spent millions to improve their corporate offices, but neglect all their satellites. Decisions are made at a national level and executives have no idea how to approach or support local markets. They only promote individuals who agree with their corporate practices. They quietly ignore those who think outside of the box. The retail side of the business sell cheap products and don't support their sales staff. Their Business Services side are plagued with favoritism, and unattainable goals for their sales teams.
