I have been working at Office Depot full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Tons of opportunity to succeed. Considering the many changes Office Depot is going through, career growth is very attainable.

Cons

Not being a market leader stifles innovation. Unfortunately, Office Depot's culture doesn't encourage calculated risks. We are too focused on maintaining the second position in the industry.

Advice to Management

Tenure should not be a single qualifier for Director level growth. Office Depot has a very traditional, old school approach to identifying and promoting talent.

    I worked at Office Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good culture, and a company that believes in their own values. Management treats you fairly and the in-store customer experience model may be the best service model in all of specialty retail.

    Cons

    For a company that sells IT, it's internal technology is painfully slow and has many problems. Every associate has to be multi-faceted and cross trained for the model to work. Very difficult to manage or work in a high turnover location.

    Advice to Management

    After merging with Office Max, invest in IT, it will pay off in productivity and make stores run more efficiently
