I worked at Office Depot full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I joined the Ecommerce team with great expectations. Found that couple of directors were quite knowledgable but the team was quite disorganized.

Cons

SQ management was pathetic, they did not know anything literrally. Sorry to say this but I personally felt that the SQ team's Director and Sr. Manager were not capable to supervise even the store associates forget about software engineers. SQ Testers were experienced guys, but seemed like they were forced to run some weird kind of checklists for no matter what are the changes in codes. Due to the availability of huge SQ team, Development managers do not care much on Unit testing. With this very bad combination of Dev and SQ management many defects get leaked in production for the Users every release.

Advice to Management

With current management you can reach no where near the Top in Ecommerce Retail sector.

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

    Pros

    Loved the copy/print work and customers

    Cons

    Understaffed, very infelxible when it comes to family. Management does not believe in treating employees well and are usually very unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Speak nicely to employees. Compliment for a job well done. In most of the stores I was in management was condescending when speaking to associates.
