    I worked at McMaster-Carr full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Well compensated for work completed; decent work-life balance; amazing retirement plan; fancy Christmas parties (rented out Franklin Institute in 2012); good benefits (used to be better); tuition reimbursement; product discounts; nice on-site cafeteria

    Cons

    Fear-based culture; no promotions if hired as an employee; stale promotions if hired as management; non-specific and inconsistent feedback by management; highly repetitive and non-rewarding work; antiquated WMS that is difficult to learn and won't be a selling point on a resume because no one else uses it; creativity is not valued at the employee level; a lot of micromanaging at the employee level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doesn't matter - they won't listen.

    The carnivorous plant of industrial supply, they lure you in with sweet goodness, and then slowly digest your soul.

    I worked at McMaster-Carr full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, experience, intelligent and interesting coworkers (mostly)

    Cons

    NOT WORTH IT. RUN. Dull, boring, unfulfilling, dead end

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually promote from within and get rid of the elitist, useless, and morale-killing MD program. Provide incentives for managers to develop their employees.
