    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at McMaster-Carr full-time

    Pros

    Very good pay and benefits for mind-numbingly simple and repetitive tasks.

    Cons

    Working here was a harrowing, soul sucking experience. Looking back years later with more work experience to compare it with, the culture at McMaster Carr seems even more abusive than I thought at the time. A constant stream of directionless negative feedback and rigid performance reviews designed to rank employees but give no tangible path to success. You will not be respected in this environment.

    Advice to Management

    They don't accept advice.
