    I have been working at Staples full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great team of people who really work hard and support you.

    Cons

    Senior management and micromanagement by them. They are so focused on tech and small components of the business that they are missing the big picture. They force everyone to be reactionary instead of being able to apply the proactive approach to be professional business managers they talk about...like talking out of both sides of their mouths. I was trained to "major in the majors" and not to "major in the minors". At corporate level, you get messages to manage your business but when it gets down to the RVP & District Mgr. level, it becomes a micromanaged process and your opinion does not matter. Their is a high level of hierarchy in this company where the District Mgrs. and up think they are something special. At meetings, even HR reps don't speak and get to know store level people.

    Advice to Management

    If Demos and Ron really mean what they say, then they should hold the senior level managers accountable to how they manage their people. Get rid of the hierarchy where everyone feels open to offering an idea, opinion, and a better way.
