    Pros

    Direct managers are very helpful and will go to bat for you.
    Employees that have been there multiple years have ascended into managing roles.

    Cons

    Not enough time in the day to get all your tasks done.
    Pay is on low end of supply chain jobs, very high turn over.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the troops informed with what is going on in the business. Since pay is low, need more incentives for employees to stay.

    Pros

    Training school for supply chain, good people, not very analytical work easy to do

    Cons

    Horrible pay compared to industry average, weak promotions and opportunities, they will over load those capable without compensation and make easy work load for under performers. High high turnover

    Advice to Management

    Promote and compensate according to performance don't give everybody the same range. People leave because no opportunities for growth and because they can go somewhere else and make 25% more after one year at Anixter why do you think there is a 35-45% turnover year after year it would take 5 years at Anixter to get to that level.
