    I have been working at W.W. Grainger full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Large company that isnt going away -Do your job then you will never have to worry about losing it -Been in business a very long time and very well known -Room for advancement if you know the right people -Pay scale seems to be better than the competition -Profit sharing is decent

    Cons

    -Success is not always rewarded -Not what you know or how well you do it but rather who you know -As a seller, pricing is your worst enemy -No inside (assigned) sales representatives -New initiatives seems like almost monthly -Branches and Sales are not on the same page and do not work well together

    Advice to Management

    Restructure compensation plan. Invest in an inside sales team to work with outside sales representatives.
