Company culture

Everyone out for themselves/step on others for personal gain

Suggestions for improvement

  • Treat your subordinates better

What I like about the company

The pay definitely attracts employees. No other company in the vicinity starts half as well in pay as Staples.

What I dislike about the company

No matter how dedicated and exceptional you are, if someone does not agree with you or how you perform you will be terminated

  • 12.Jun 2017
  • Employee

Support from Management

Not much follow through on coworker complaints.

Teamwork

For the most part it was terrific, but there's always 1 or 2 who leave it to the group to do their work.

Level of Autonomy

Suggestions were always welcomed and usually implemented.

Communication

Generally very good.

Career Development

There was a cap on raises and promotions. "You'll never get further than you are now".

Office/Work Environment

Didn't feel comfortable making legitimate complaints due to past ignoring of semi serious issues.
