I have been working at W.W. Grainger full-time (less than an year)

Pros

One of the best training programs in sales, great experience, wonderful benefits (apart from salary), and excellent corporate culture.

Cons

Salary is pretty low, no real short-term compensatory benefits, and salary is non-negotiable. Company gears its payout to its employees towards the future and only benefits employees who spend their careers there. Not much room for advancement, moving up is almost too hard and happens very slowly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give your employees raises and turnover rates will decrease. Also, make income adjustments for those living in high cost areas (there is no adjustment and salary is not negotiable).
