Negative Outlook

I worked at MSC Industrial Direct full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Excellent deliveries
Product availability
Good website
Knowlegeable people

Cons

Too many initiatives
Too many meetings
Too many reports
They say they want feedback but they really don't
Upper management dismissive in meetings
HR runs the company
Sales and managers have 5-20% of their salary at risk
High stress level
No fusion with the 2 largest suppliers- KMT and Seco.

Advice to Management

Cut down on paperwork and meetings
Initiatives are out of control
Don't punish the messenger
learn from other companies, sometimes they do it better !!

    Pros

    you'll always have job security, even in a downturn. bonuses are good, but not guaranteed. a lot of creative freedom and great co-workers...

    Cons

    too many directors. too many cliques.

    Advice to Management

    not everyone outside the building is better than everyone inside the building. treat and pay people like you want them to stay.
