    I worked at MSC Industrial Direct full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The only positive thing were the people I worked with throughout the company to perform audit testing. Everybody was friendly and easy to work with.

    Cons

    The salary left much to be desired but worse than that was the type of work assigned. I was hired as a Senior Auditor and was performing work that would have been suitable for a Staff Auditor. Almost all of my assignments were performing SOx 404 testing. Aside from that I performed quarterly review for the quarterly Management Call and a Branch Audit. Everything I did was very simple and there was no challenge. There were times when I would have nothing to do for days. I have never been more bored than when I worked here. Also, after being there for a couple of months it was obvious that there was virtually no room for advancement and would be stuck in that position. On top of all of this, the leadership within the department did not seem to understand that Internal Audit reports to the Audit Committee and not Senior Management of the company. The Internal Audit department leadership seemed to fear Senior Management and how they would react to issues raised from testing performed
    . I would never work for this employer again!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sure to have people in the Internal Audit department leadership that are qualified with adequate experience to perform their job adequately.
