    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at W.W. Grainger as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, cafeteria. People with kids can come in late/leave early.

    Cons

    Management does not mentor nor support team members. It's all for one and one for all. Disorganized work flow, little teamwork and too many hands in the pot.

    Advice to Management

    Marketing management needs a complete overhaul. The lack of a line of sight to this grave issue is the reason why I give the CEO a poor rating.
