Need to get with the current times, too old school

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
need more flexibility to allow people to work from home. Make hours work better with personal life. they say work life balance, then treat you like a criminal if you take time off or want to work from home, or change your hours from one day to the next to help with appointments etc.

Awesome

Pretty cool I just got hired and the pay looks good and I really would enjoy starting work with them some at some point in the near future. But they seem like nice people I just hope it's not a work scam

Don’t get comfortable

This company will suck you in with fantastic benefits, lots of holiday, vacation time, etc. do not be fooled! No job is secure and no employee is safe in their role! They have their favorites and it shows! Once you’re no longer wanted, they will make sure you’re uncomfortable enough to leave.

Pros

Vacation, benefits

Cons

Literally everything else

Respect from management.

I worked at ACCO for 21 yrs and enjoyed every day of it. This company is very fair in all aspects. Many ways to claim the corporate ladder. Be eagar to learn.

Good company that has the potential to be great but holding itself back

ACCO is a company of many companies, they started as a paper clip company and over time have expanded into many different consumer products. ACCO has the potential to be great, but they are holding themselves back on innovation. Unfortunately they are always one step behind everyone else. It's really hard to advance at this company because they operate SO lean, I mean LEAN.... There is just no room for growth. If you are happy staying in your same position for your career you will be fine. There is an uneasy feeling with everyone due to the amount of layoffs that are constantly happening. A lot of the high level leadership has been at the company for decades and does not have the experience from other companies. Overall a good company, but really need to get with digital innovation as paper and pens are going away.

Pros

Pay is good, vacation time starts with 3 weeks, 401K match

Cons

Leadership that has been at the company so long not interested in change, lack of innovation into digital items

Bad management

They used to call from agency for seasonal work and used to pay $17.80 than they start doing contract with the same pay and start deducting union money but never let participate any union activity while more then 50% staff was contract union was getting good amount of money from contract employees but when there was time to support they negotiated with company to reduce contract employees salary to $15

Too quiet

Great part time kob

Worked trade shows for acco, it was good money and enjoyable! I got lots of advance notice about when the trade shows would be happening and training on presenting new products.

Pros

Paid travel, great samples

Cons

Trade shows were often far away

Jobs are easy, environment sucks

There weren’t any real hard jobs at the factory. You have some awesome coworkers and some horrible ones. Everything is based off seniority and depending on what department you worked in, it was impossible to get the vacation days you wanted off. Most supervisors are easy going but you always have those few who are just total power tripping jerks. Management seems to have a lot of issues with drama and pettiness.

Pros

The pay is okay

Cons

Not much time for a life

Lots of overtime

You are just a body. They only care about their fat check at end of quarter. Your body will be tan down and you will be super exhausted. Some supervisors care about you. All in all I don’t recommend.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Every weekend-sat&sunday, pay

Good Pay/Great Benefits

It wasn't the worst job I've ever had, just be prepared to get screamed at by customers who want there calendars yesterday. Management is good and HR has your back.

It doesn't feel like a company that will be here in the future

Jobs pay well, but money isn't everything. There is no sense that this company cares to invest in its people or the facility. It might be ok for a temporary job. Don't consider a career here.

Pros

jobs pay well

Cons

employees aren't appreciated
