    Pros

    I have worked at corporate for WP for almost 6 years. It is a wonderful company with exceptional benefits and opportunities for personal growth.

    Cons

    New Executive hire from W.W. Grainger hired based on flawed human resource vetting. More than a handful of us are aware of Mr. Pulick's past "challenges". This has become an unacceptable, hostile work environment and we respectfully ask that it be addressed immediately. We love WP too much!!

    Advice to Management

    Do thorough background searches on your new Executive hires. Why jeopardize our long legacy of tradition and success with people who it turns out (with minimal, verified online searches) were fired from their recent position and company because of "questionable personnel ethics and financial irregularities". We have worked to hard to build what we have..please correct this mistake!!

    Pros

    Great company, overall good work-life balance, free lunches, good insurance/benefits, interesting company to work for

    Cons

    Management structure within IT is pretty bad, too many managers, managers have poor management skills, causes tremendous inefficiency and stress. No room to advance in career. Management does not invest in its employees. Technologies and methodologies used are outdated.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage people as valuable assets rather than monkeys, get rid of your ivory towers

    Pros

    Surrounded by incredibly smart people who are willing to help you learn and challenge you to consistently form intelligent opinions supported by detailed analysis.

    Cons

    Not a lot of downsides. Pay was great, coworkers were great, management was great. It is a fairly top heavy company though with a lot of partners and not necessarily a lot of room for advancement from the bottom rungs.

    Pros

    Management in the Network Engineering Team is the best I've experienced. Very knowledgeable yet a trusting and hands off manager. Great team to work with. Best quality of life job, company treats their people very well. There are great projects to work on with extremely competent, very technical people. Great place to learn and be a part of a team.

    Cons

    The team is very small so there is not a lot of room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.
