Pros

Grainger is a great place to work. Great benefits. They utilize IT as a strategic weapon to imbed themselves with their customers. They will invest in you if you show the appetite and willingness to learn.

Cons

Some leadership ego's are a little overboard, where they struggle if they are not the smartest person in the room. There is a passive aggressive conservative undertone that makes driving change difficult in the organization.

Advice to Management

Recognize what your customers truly value and invest soundly there. Don't spread the wealth and make 100 projects important, for you will not complete anything.

    Pros

    Some of the best people I have ever worked around

    Cons

    Less opportunity for growth than presented. Lots of busywork. Trying to make the entry-level TSR a career, which it is not.

    Advice to Management

    See that there is less difference between TSRs and AMs than you think.
