No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Staples full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Most associates in my immediate sphere of influence are talented & hard-working. There are pockets of innovation. I am able to learn a lot and gain valuable experience. Benefits are decent.

Cons

Career advancement opportunities are limited, even for top performers. Top talent is easily poached and there is a lot of attrition. The culture is a mess, morale is low, and politics reigns supreme. Below average compensation for technology workers.

Advice to Management

Move to a more performance-based compensation model. Less talk, more walk.

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Small work environment. If you like that. No overnight hours. Not a lot of work if you stay on top of the department.

    Cons

    About 30% of the managers and supervisors don't have great managing skills. Pretty boring in terms of customer traffic. If you work hard and fast you can be walking aroun the store doing nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Management and "supervisors" need better and way more training. Not all are productive. A lot of in sitting in office texting going on.
