    Pros

    Great pay, relocating opportunities, advancement opportunities. Depending on which site you work at you have a chance to work with some pretty amazing individuals in some really cool industries.

    Cons

    Company is growing to fast and it seems that it system and processes are unable to keep up. When working at smaller sites you may not be given the help that you would if you were at one of the larger sites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think upper management is over worked and it will start affecting everyone if not fixed

    Pros

    Overall the company could be a great opportunity for someone to move up and take on new responsibilities/positions. They give you the tools to succeed for the most part.

    Cons

    They seem a little lost still in who they want to be in the industrial marketplace. They want to position themselves in between the local distributors and the large national catalog houses, but in most cases it just makes them less appealing to customers. Claim to be the industry leader in Supply Chain Solutions, but it is very difficult to do so and can be frustrating to customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul FPS. Get the IDG name out there, still too many people don't know who IDG is.

    I worked at Industrial Distribution Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay is not that bad, and the work is simple on an intellectual basis. There is a lot of different parts to the job that gives a lot of experience on a resume.

    Cons

    The temperature during the summer and winter is not controlled very well. The communication between the management and the workers seemed to be lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to more of the legitimate concerns of the employees. Let the employees have control in their department, everyone has different approaches to things that can still get to the main objective.

    Pros

    The company has a team-oriented environment that fosters individual involvement in improving the processes. IDG is innovative, especially in the supply chain solutions side of their business.

    Cons

    The company is privately held and the goals and objectives set by the ownership are often unrealistic and unattainable given current economic conditions.
