    Current Employee - Inside Sales Account Manager in Lake Zurich, IL (US)

    I have been working at ACCO Brands full-time (more than an year)


    The sales team is consistently growing which is always a plus. Management restructured the sales process which benefited us as sales reps. Throughout my 2 years of employment, I have been promoted 3 times and still see room for growth. Your hard work is definitely noticed here.

    - Great pay, benefits and vacation
    - Professional and competitive environment
    - Tools provided to succeed in your book of business
    - Room for growth
    - Top of the line facility

    I would recommend working for any of ACCO's departments if your currently in the market.


    Some products will eventually develop less of a demand. However, ACCO has a solid product development team and is currently working on new products to expand their customer offerings.
