Pros

Currently, Jim Hibberd is our CEO. His enthusiasm for his work is highly contagious and has brought new motivation to many. Being one of two US banners for Rexel Holdings USA means that change and growth will continue. That's exciting for many of us.

Cons

Some of the people who work for the company across the country have been here for far too long. Their jobs have changed with technology, but they have not because they don't like change and are merely marking the time until retirement.

Advice to Management

Keep finding people like Jim to lead and inspire us! For many, work can be quite fun and Jim's the kind who makes it so!

    Pros

    -Lots of responsibility and ownership for the taking
    -Great learning opportunities for go-getters
    -Exposure to wide range of business functions

    Cons

    -Long hours with lower than average pay (does not take into account higher cost of living cities)
    -Management does not do well communicating down the levels of command
    -Old software system - need to upgrade to a new ERP system to support current customers
    -Business entities do not work well together; compete within same sphere

    Advice to Management

    Take time to talk to employees that work with your customers day in and day out, and listen. People are leaving for a reason. Increase pay or explain to employees why you're not.
