Great pay and benefits by Grainger. Leadership is consistant and has experience in the MRO marketplace. They are great communicators and will spend money to train you and improve your skills. They have decent bonus programs and a great profit sharring program as well.

Cons

Cons are consistant with any large organization. A lot od red tape. often difficult to get to the right desision maker because many jobs seem to overlap. If you are a field based emplpyee you may have to work harder to get assistance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to beat the competition by investing in the company. Look deep into the aqusitions that have been made and ensure that they are assimited properly into the organization.

    Pros

    Strong company reputation that helps in the selling process. The branch personnel are very professional and supportive. Lucrative profit sharing plan.

    Cons

    Sales Managers are out of touch and play favorites. The goal setting process for all sellers is ridiculous and inconsistent and whether or not you reach your monthly and yearly number comes down to pure luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better more objective way to measure your Account Managers performance. Stop going outside the company to fill management positions and promote from within.
