Nice people, middle management nice, a lot of dead weight,

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Saint Louis, MO

ProsNice people, so many people running around easy to take off to go on other job interviews, SAP, good company if you want to move around the country every 3-5 years

ConsLimited responsibility and opportunity to make decisions, Purchasing, Accounting, and Collections HQ in St. Louis is like working for for three different companies, Only way to move up within department is to relocate, Apply out of your department gets you a backroom meeting with the Director of you department wondering why you would want a different role (one hint $), granted it was entry level but very little challenge day to day, pay was so low I left before I could get moved up in St. Louis so I never saw the profit sharing plan, trainer said we were eligible for a 3% pay increase annually in first week, I found a job that pays 30% more after being with Graybar for less than a year,

Advice to Senior ManagementCut the dead weight and give the people that produce more responsibility, End the contests and value the employees that will put 100% into what they do without some non-monetary incentive system.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
