I have been working at Graybar Electric full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good company to put on your resume. A great company to build your skill sets and further your knowledge with the millions of products.

Cons

Not a forward-thinking company. Graybar is stuck in the 80's. Graybar promises updates for e-commerce & I can only think that after any change is implemented they will be stuck in the 90's.

Advice to Management

Management needs to start empowering "young blood" to offer some fresh perspective with marketing, among other things.

    I worked at Graybar Electric full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, huge product offering, millions of dollars of inventory, tools needed to perform job, ongoing training.

    Cons

    Not always enough resources to service customer properly.
    Never wise to promote an individual to a position of management simply because he/she excels in current position.

    Advice to Management

    Advice for only one manager really. Let those who are succeeding succeed. Why do you feel you must be "dominant" over your people. You should never degrade your people in front of customers. Especially when your person is the company's relationship with that customer.
