    Pros

    Good people at the company to work with. Competitive salary, benefits, and perks.

    Cons

    Poor leadership is a chronic problem. Too wound up in surface level immediate problems; no vision or focus on business fundamentals or innovation for the future. Oblivious to the facts regarding employee disengagement; and scared to measure.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees by investing in them and entrusting them to innovate for a winning cause. Set a vision that people believe in; then back it up by actually doing things congruent with what you say (rather than hypocritical actions we are used to). Stop funding things of the past (store of the future; promotional pricing; weekly circulars) and move the money to the future (true omni-channel; one view of the customer)

    Pros

    New leadership appears to making adjustments to downsize firm to reflect declining market share

    Cons

    Poor treatment of field associates as well as those at HQ

    Advice to Management

    Too much legal interference within Human Resource development; antiquated systems keep Office Depot from being a top talent hub

    Pros

    People you work with are all fantastic

    Cons

    Poor pay. Long hours and senior directors are on you all day long. Anyone with tenure ...they find a way to get rid of you. They never act professionally and treat management employees so poorly you want to leave. I am a professional with a lot of experience and skills. Management are mostly a bunch of kids that want to get ahead and will stab you in the back every chance they get. If you want some experience ....just stay 2 years and then leave. Don't go there unless you really need a job. With the mergers' they are going down hill

    Advice to Management

    Look at directors and senior directors. They treat their employees like dirt.
