    I have been working at W.W. Grainger full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good product breadth and depth, good service to customers, great next day availability, changing to keep up with the market.

    Cons

    Poor communication with change causing uncertainty in the sales force. Managers not able to performance manage without worry of retaliation from direct reports. Too many managers "chose to leave the company" after performance managing.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your sales managers and let them lead. Stand by them when they performance manage and make decisions. By not doing so, you're creating a culture of allowing mediocre sellers and sales leaders unable to do anything about it.
