Current Employee - General Manager

I have been working at Fastenal full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Learn many of the aspects of running your own business while using the resources of a huge company. You control your destiny for the most part. Sell, grow- you do very well.

Cons

High expectations regardless of market conditions. You can always do better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop with the negativity when addressing your whole company. Focus on the fact that your employees are working hard. The performance of the stock is not a reflection on the quality of employees in your organization.
