Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at xpedx full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

A subsidiary of International Paper.

Cons

Lack of direction and void of leadership that understands the changing market place. Lots of lip service but no positive action. Revolving door at the top has crippled some segments of the business.

Advice to Management

Rebrand/rename the company and leverage the International Paper name to increase awareness of what your capabilities are. The current name does nothing for business. Invest in competent management talent. The fact that one particular division has failed to turn a profit in 11 years speaks directly to the fact that you don't understand the business that you profess to be in. Either commit or quit! Stop the revolving door of upper management and sales people and focus on the real issues that keep the company from reaching it's goals. (

    Pros

    In the xpedx stores division, if you have an immediate supervisor that is respectful you might enjoy your career.

    Cons

    There are many opportunities to self-initiate, but just because opportunities exist do not translate into empowerment to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency and collaboration should exist between the stores and the "division" on West Ridge Rd. Training should be uniform.
