    I worked at Acklands-Grainger full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    AGI is the leader in the market, with only 8% of market share. The room to grow in unlimited.
    There is a lot of good people (not all). Solid growth, double digit, from 2009 through 2012. Very profitable margins. Amazing if you compare it with CPGs.

    The power of scale, international presence and a strong financial position makes AGI a hard competitor to beat if can align those factors to its favour. It can grow forever through acquisitions.

    Cons

    AGI lacks of a solid and homogeneous HR policy, everything is left to your boss. Because of it, in departments with a bad manager key talent with years of experience is either moving on, taking early retirement or leaving without a job. This is being specially notorious in the logistics area now (2012-2014) and AP before. Bad results due to bad managers can go for ever where no sound resolution is taken. A SVP of HR was replaced but nothing really improved.

    AGI is being 'taken over' by its owner Acklands in the US. In the mist of excellent results the president (Sean o'Brien) was let go and a new American president is in place. More VPs are American every time there is an opportunity and the executive team is becoming a figure on paper.

    To get promoted or supported it is more important your relation with your one up and who you know than your results. Your one up has total power over your future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for patterns in the employee dynamics and take action, you are loosing key talent.
    Recognize your true talent.
    Make processes simpler.
