Cons

    I worked at Office Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work Life Balance was good

    Cons

    Advertised $2 allowance for continuing education - but each time I requested it - I was turned down and said it wasn't in the budget for over 5 years that I was there.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't allow your employees to learn - then the company can't grow. Invest in your employee's.

    Pros

    Flexibility of Home Office. Highly trained Management. Fellow colleagues really look out for one another. You’re always learning something new every day.

    Cons

    Programs and objectives seem to change every quarter. The failed merger with staples caused a lot of disruption within our market, and it’s been difficult to adjust.

    Advice to Management

    Commission based employees need more transparency into their numbers. Quotas need to be delegated quicker so sales people know what they’re chasing before the quarter starts.

    Pros

    Fun and it's nice to be able to interact with different types of customers. Have fun while you are helping your customers. Great sales consultants to work with.

    Cons

    As a manager there is too many task given to you and expectation is high, the part that is not fair is that the store manager gives you too many task that are impossible to accomplish in one day or night. If tasks are not done you are not a good performing manager. The store managers get a ton a pressure from top that is why some go a little overboard.

    Advice to Management

    Do as you say and as you expect.
