Pros

Okay benefits and I did not have to work outside of office hours

Cons

Some managers did not know how to effectively communicate without being aggressive. Feedback on positives were rarely given.

Advice to Management

Please take the time to not only give constructive criticism, but also positive feedback when employees have done something well.

    Pros

    Staples is a huge corporation is run by upper management to appease stock holders. It is a financially sound company.

    Cons

    They will seek to destroy anyone who poses a threat. In addition I have heard openly racial comments and complete disregard for the people who work for the company.

    Advice to Management

    You are losing good employees due to your churn and burn mentality. This is not a good business practice and will eventually lead to your demise.

    Pros

    Staples is a large stable company with a great external image. A great company to work for if you have a family and need flexible work schedules.

    Cons

    Very rigid reporting structures. Company prides itself on being "entrepreneurial", despite the fact they are the furthest thing from it. Management is unlikely to care if you are doing a good job or not and most likely won't do anything to change it. A great place to work if your OK with doing exactly what your job states and nothing else.

    Advice to Management

    Million Dollar Options during a recession, with all of your employees getting no raises and no bonuses sets a bad precedent.
