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

Pros

Profit sharing is second to none... they have a very strategic vision to stay first in their space. Very interested in employee feedback and are always looking to promote from within.

Cons

Can be high pressure in the sales organization. Like any large company, navigating different departments can be a challenge even for tenured employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep it up!

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
