    I have been working at OfficeMax full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good Work/Life balance.(until you get laid off)

    Cons

    No growth opportunities. Waiting to get laid off. Office Depot bought a strong company, albeit number three, with a solid balance sheet, and ruined it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing leadership every three years. Find a way to provide some stability to the company. You do nothing for morale, when the associates see the current CEO getting millions to leave and the new CEO getting millions to come on board, all while the people who actually do the work are getting laid off.

    Pros

    Great overall management, Plenty of opportunities for working as part of a team

    Cons

    Sometimes the expectations of goals to meet for each worker is ridiculous because they aren't specified to each persons specific position

    Working in the print center it was hard to juggle people's orders and new customers.
