Pros

You work from home and they offer a fair compensation package. The have an excellent new hire 5 day training program. They all so like to have a lot of fun in the office.

Cons

There is a lot of pressure to close 2 new accounts every week. If you are not able to meet the 2 closes each few regarding of attaining your revenue goal, you will be fired.

Advice to Management

Have more realistic goals for new accounts. I don't have any more advice or feedback outside of making the goals more attainable.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Number one company in the office products industry. Global footprint. Large number of products and services to offer customers. Good benefits and stock vesting.

    Cons

    Very large company, disconnected from senior leadership. Due to acquisition and "right sizing", you may find you've joined an internal group that's being phased out. As is typical in large companies, a handful of young people are put on the "fast track" to middle/upper management (often for unclear reasons) while competent employees and managers languish for years in one role.

    Advice to Management

    More transparent leadership structure and promotions. More communication with front line employees. Greater effort to integrate other lines of business with the office products team.
