    I worked at Barloworld Industrial Distribution full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good brand and good product. Fun place to work

    Cons

    Once all the stock market regs came into place, the mojo moved from how to win to how not to lose. Too much focus on risk mitigation and not enough of entrepreneurship.

    Large Company has a good reputation in the Industry. Lots of opprutunity in the market place, One of the largest players in the Industry.

    A little top heavy with regards to upper management . The Industry is transforming itself to be streamlined thus handicapping the salesforce.
