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.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Has a very strong business model and strong business leadership. Is willing to invest in technology in certain areas and has the ability to move quickly on new opportunites

    Cons

    Can be overly bureaucratic and administrative heavy. Not will to make chnages in technology in core systems and in many cases limited by legacy systems.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend looking at ways to begin a replacement strategy as part of an on going systems plan and look at how technology investments are measured.
