    Pros

    There is an opportunity to transition into other work environments if you want to experience a job change.

    Cons

    With the inability to hunt and add more business, Grainger rolls out un-realistic and inconsistent semi annual sales goals of 12 - 16% growth over prior year. Additionally inexperienced DSM's with questionable ethics and inconsistent standards compounds an employee’s frustration to understand expectations.
    Favoritism is a concern.

    Advice to Management

    Consider setting consistent standards to sales expectations. Unrealistic goals may result in loss of good employees. Mandatory managerial seminars or courses should be required for all DSM’s / leaders. Corp should seriously take a look at what is really going on right now in the field with how managers are treating their employees.
