I worked at Carlton-Bates full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

If you're one of the chosen few, you can practically get away with murder, and your job is secure.

Cons

Don't expect to get ahead if you aren't close personal friends with the managers. Extreme favoritism and nepotism all over the place. Those who cut corners get ahead, and those who try to do an honest job get steamrolled.

Advice to Management

Recognize the value of your loyal employees who put up with your endless changes and requirements.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Carlton-Bates full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    An opportunity to learn the OEM-side of the business, and work with leading suppliers of the industry. Interesting, growing business of value-add brings new insights and opportunities for expansion. Incorporation of WESCO businesses opens new horizons.

    Cons

    Exhausting internal friction and dictatorial leadership. Lack of field talent management, broken down internal communication and rampant cronyism stifles CB. Major gaps in collaboration, sharing and management through 'One WESCO'.
