What is it really like at MSC after 10 years

Account Executive (Current Employee)

ProsCompany provides an excellent training program, but it is very scripted.

ConsNO growth opportunities once hired, HR department is paranoid and schizophrenic. Open new and additional background checks, subject you to a battery of psychological and skills based testing. Internal recommendations and feedback are ignored.

Advice to Senior ManagementLess focus on pleasing Wall Street and get a grip on the reality of the competitive landscape. The answers lie within the Company. Listen to your Customers and own people (particularly at the ground level) their ideas and suggestions are free and worth more than those you are paying for. Throw away the script and can the hokey applause track used in corporate communications.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
