I have been working at McMaster-Carr full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Strong compensation structure which is designed to keep you around. Since the culture is not favorable to most this is a must to retain good employees.

Cons

Somewhat toxic culture. This was far from what I was promised when I was hired here. There are a good amount of very intelligent people that work here and we continue to micro-manage them and chastise them for simple errors, and instead of focusing on development and improvement we instead focus on finding opportunities to break them down and tell them that they do not meet expectations. Management solely by metrics; development thru fear.

Advice to Management

This company will continue to exist for many years to come in spite of the poor culture, so advice here will be in vain. I am thankful that I have had the experience because I walk away knowing exactly what I do not want in the future as my career continues to develop.

    I have been working at McMaster-Carr full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good introduction to the working world after college.
    Good employee discount on batteries and other items
    Awesome Insurance & Tuition reimbusment

    Cons

    No opportunities to move up in companyinto management-you have to have attended an Ivy League university or a specific campus of the University of Michigan and be chosen to get into management

    Advice to Management

    allow us regular state college grads into management. We're not lesser people because we didn't have the money for an Ivy League tuition
