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

    Pros

    Nice Headquarters in South Florida; Good talent at the middle of the organization; Opportunities for work in the community

    Cons

    Bad upper management; A "sweat shop" type of work environment; Employees are treated as disposal

    Advice to Management

    "Delivering winning solutions that inspire worklife." Practice your mission within your own company first. If you can't inspire the associates in your own business, how can you inspire others? Realize that your employees want to be recognized, appreciated and given opportunities to grow. Things that cost little money but could make a huge difference in performance. In addition to technical ability, promotions/new hires in middle and upper management should be based on the ability to engage and develop people.

    Pros

    At this time there are no pros to working for Office Depot,

    Cons

    Office Depot has reorganized their management teams which means demotions and pay cuts. No chance for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    The new management structure has left a bitter taste in your dedicated hardworking managers. We work hard and we get demoted with sizable pay cuts. Give us a reason to want to stay at Office Depot, not a reason to leave. I would think you would want seasoned, hardworking dedicated employees who offer excellent customer service, but the way the new policies and procedures are looking I guess not.
