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

Pros

The majority of the people are fantastic to work with. Work/life balance is great and some teams are very flexible with telecommuting.

Cons

There is no room for advancement anymore. With all the lay offs to "flatten" the organization it has made it very difficult to advance. Also, if you do get promoted it is more with who likes you in the organization rather than skill set.

Advice to Management

The morale is beyond repair. Cutting cost is always best for the company.
