Was an ok place to work but greed at the top has taken over.

Inside Sales (Current Employee)

ProsBenefits.vacation Not much else.

ConsVery top heavy in management To many goals.Upper management has no clue what the worker bee do. Lots of high paid management that are not needed.Reactive not proactive.Lousy at MRO .Does not replace workers when they leave so double,triple work load for everybody else. Culture was preached but no longer Run by how much big wigs can make on stock options.Wants to be everything to every company but cannot come through. No advancement.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet back to basics of selling metalworking. Start caring about lower level employees or they will have none with any experience.Stop being so greedy and start sharing the wealth.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Horrible place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    I worked at MSC Industrial Direct full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: nothing to really speak of Cons: restrictive, slow to react to market trends, culture-bound, whistleblowing is actually encouraged with a Hotline. Creativity is discouraged. Multiple… Advice to Senior Management: Be more responsive to your people. Stop encouraging tattle-taling… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
