Disapproves of CEO

I worked at W.W. Grainger full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Decent profit sharing and stock options and salary

Cons

If you don't go out drinking with management be prepared to to never get a promotion.

Advice to Management

Have a little more control over the branch managers so as promotions are based more on actual work done vs. who gets friendly.
