Fellowes Brands is a manufacturer of office and technology accessories. Fellowes Brands owns and operates 17 subsidiaries worldwide in Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Poland, Mexico, Spain, Russia, Australia, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, South Korea and South Africa and employs more than 1,500 people throughout the world.

On Aug 2020 a former employee wrote a review saying "stay away" from Fellowes, posted by Indeed: Family owned. Very top heavy on managers. Loud open-platform -no cubes. clear glass to see everyone; no privacy. The desk is white, chair is white, walls are white; not in the main floor where you are interviewed. Constant drone of air conditioners and shaking floors from production machines. Health Insurance requires "proof" dependent is related - expect to provide birth records and marriage certs. First day you are handed a manual on how to live, how often you must exercise at work and maintain proper posture. They do issue citations for improper posture. Managers curse at employees. Annual layoff of losers who do not play the game - HR looks other way. Most products built are out-sourced to China. Tech is old, out-dated, Rather than innovate on quality; they innovate on appearances. This is extended on to you. Watch what you wear. Get porcelain veneers if you can. You will see high winds at entrances so keep your hair proper on the way in. You are being graded.

Gluer Operator (Former Employee) says

"Followed management does not promote hiring African Americans!! No matter how hard I worked, I was not going to get promoted and The manager told the department head to not promote me."

Territory Sales Manager, Northeast Corridor (Former Employee) says

"Toxic environment. Management does not know what they are doing. Micro management is their style. Peoples option is not respected. VP of sales does not know the industry."

Director of Operations (Current Employee) says

"This family owned business was once a great company who cared deeply about the employee and employees family. Work/Life Balance once stood for the culture but no longer does this apply. There is very high employee turnover as a result and teams frequently fight between each other rather than work together. Product design is solid but the marketing support is now beginning to fall short.Good Comp ProgramCorporate culture and Management team engagement"

Engineering Project Manager (Former Employee) says

"My boss and co-workers were great, The building has recently remodeled into a nice open office environment. It is a family run business, but unfortunately, the employees seem to have lost their part in the extended family. Their investment in the building and future products have caused a lot of turn-over with recent layoffs. My advice to senior management: I would do better long term planning so that you can retain the employees you've invested in.Great co-workers, nice work environmentLacking job security"

SR. Corporate Manager, ESS (Former Employee) says

"most people are friendly but overall culture is one of concern regarding liability and risk. Decisions often take too long as concern of liability is concerned to the point of stagnation. difficult to make changes.nice peopledifficult to make changes"

Customer Alliance Specialist (Former Employee) says

"The company has silos of great management and support. However, they seem to allow behaviors that do not support a productive, collaborative and mentoring atmosphere. I would recommend this company, but hope you get in a "good" dept."

Analyst (Former Employee) says

"It is okay company to work for but no room for growth. my manager has bad soft skills never says hi or hello to me or others. Very moody person. Plus not too many projects to work on."

Andrew says

"Just purchased a brand new fellowes paper shredder from curry’s. Got home after 2 hours spent driving and collecting it. And guess what it does not work complete joke. May as well have burnt the money and saved myself the hassle."

Bill Rearick says

"their quick answer web site is a scam! they wasted my time. they would not answer a simple question without a credit card."

Michele Oldfield says

"Fellowes 300CL. This has to be the worst paper shredder ever made. The first one we received it was loud and and didn't work well at all. When called a week later to be refunded I was told they don't just refund someone will be out to look at it. Well they came out and looked at it and something on the machine was bad. Our company wanted to just get rid of this shredder but they had to send us another one. Promising us we would be so happy with it. Finally weeks later after poor communication we were sent another one. What a hassle it was to get it into the box witch the movers wouldn't do. Once the new one was received we set it up and it has been nothing but problems also.It does not shut off and if you don't check it important things are left in the tray UN shredded. We even had a credit card that was shredded and left the chip in the trap. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT. YOU WILL REGRET IT!!!!!!"

Ray Bestwick says

"I purchased an office shredder with a cash back offer, I followed the online instructions to claim back the offer. After weeks of waiting Fellowes have (welched on the deal) replied back stating somehow the information I have given is not considered a valid proof of purchase. Try looking deeper Fellowes. This was entered via a link by Fellowes. Last purchase you get off me Fellowes!"

CrashDummyUK says

"Purchased a Followes H-6c and after only 6 months it jammed shredding a credit card. Contacted customer services and they asked how frequently I oil it to which I replied. Not heard anything else back from Fellowes and they have just decided to ignore me. Does a warranty or customer service mean nothing? Consumer Direct is the next port of call."
