    I have been working at Robert Bosch Tool full-time

    Pros

    The management team in my business unit is on point
    We are doing a lot of great work that is succeeding with double digit growth
    My coworkers are fun and genuinely good people
    I'm learning a lot everyday
    My manager has my back and I'm free to make decisions

    Cons

    My business unit is the anomaly, the rest of the organization does not experience these pros
    Upward mobility is limited
    Compensation is not industry competitive
    Eventually I will have to leave to accomplish my career goals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Internet based distribution is just as big of a long term threat as it is a short term opportunity
    We need a right angle drill
    We need to focus more effort on industrial distribution
