Good company but flawed/biased leadership20 Sept 2021 - IT DirectorRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Great people around the globe with some great ideas. Opportunity to travel to some other sites and meet people from other cultures
Current IT leadership seems to undervalue current staff Not setting the teams to succeed with little support when there is a failure

Things got rocky in Kettering, Ohio...4 Aug 2017 - Anonymous Employee in Kettering, OHRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Great people in the Kettering office; great compensation; great benefits.
Low morale; some departments overworked due to job/department elimination; often slow interdepartmental communication; ACCO management cared more about the bottom line than their people...CLEARLY. Until the ACCO buyout in May 2012, Mead was incredible. Then ACCO came in and made cuts, lowered morale, assumed too much, and made mistakes (which I heard one the the directors verbally admit to my team). I saw how NOT to manage a business. Mead had a great intern program, but with ACCO, the interns are so much more likely to leave after their internship than stay to get hired on. That speaks volumes.Continue reading

Basically a SlaveHouse19 Aug 2015 - Anonymous Employee in Booneville, MSRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Vacation time and Benefits are decent, most of the people are great people to work with.
Salary is mediocre at best. Annual increases are a joke at best, won't even cover insurance premium increases most of the time. Put in a pay scale but told people that it was highly likely that you would never top out. Too much overtime due to trying to put out their work with the bare minimum amount of workforce. Forcing people to do multiple jobs with no extra compensation. Far too much favoritism and encourages back-biting among the workers from lower- management which causes the environment to be very bad for the average worker.Continue reading

downeard spiral in progress30 Jun 2015 - Anonymous Employee in Sidney, NYRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
GREAT people! Great pay and benefits, work/life balance, very flexible with time off requests.
I began working for the company under MeadWestvaco and it was fantastic. A few months after my start date the ACCO merger brought massive restructuring, layoffs and policy changes. The cull started with long time employees and continued until the vast majority of positions on the admin side were eliminated or relocated leaving the facility as primarily as a manufacturing site.Continue reading

Great People. Lower pay. Little room to grow.13 Jun 2020 - Product Manager in Lake Zurich, ILRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Great people. Flat structure so lots of interaction with Sr. Management. Exposure to tons of different tasks and functions. Great place to learn a trade.
Low pay compared to other companies in the area. Uncertainty due to constant restructuring and lay offs in the past years. No clear path to grow into a Sr. Position. Very much a boys club in Sr. Management. Severely understaffed in many departments leading to insane work loads even for Jr. positions.Continue reading

Great people, pleasant environment.2 Oct 2013 - Account Specific Marketing Intern in Kettering, OHRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Great people, good company culture. I enjoyed my time there, however it showed that retail marketing wasn't for me. My managers were very helpful and personable. I would recommend the company to someone interested in this line of work.
I found that retail marketing tended to be more order processing than actual marketing work. Seemed more like Operations Management than real marketing experience. Worked with largest drug-store firms such as Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid (even though they were quite demanding, price oriented (as opposed to relationship) and overall unloyal.Continue reading

It was a great company but has seen decline over the past several years due to lack of innovation.6 Apr 2015 - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, ILRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The people are great but Management forgot how to make money.
This business still has not merged even after more than two years. The culture clash is amazing. One side is a matrix the other pure hierarchy. If you work there - hope you never have to move backwards in time to the old command and salute organization that was once Mead.Continue reading

Director5 Jun 2016 - Director in Lake Zurich, ILRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Great people which makes the environment nice. The brands are good as well and the company is on a better path.
No remote working flex considering its in the middle of nowhere. Food places are also hard to get to during lunch. There is a cafe but not that great.Continue reading
