I have been working at W.W. Grainger full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

One of the best training programs in sales, great experience, wonderful benefits (apart from salary), and excellent corporate culture.

Cons

Salary is pretty low, no real short-term compensatory benefits, and salary is non-negotiable. Company gears its payout to its employees towards the future and only benefits employees who spend their careers there. Not much room for advancement, moving up is almost too hard and happens very slowly.

Advice to Management

Give your employees raises and turnover rates will decrease. Also, make income adjustments for those living in high cost areas (there is no adjustment and salary is not negotiable).

    I have been working at W.W. Grainger full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people. Terrific leadership. Wonderful benefits. Limitless resources. Team culture.

    Cons

    Seem to be lacking a strategy to compete with local/regional suppliers who are offering the same products/services at a considerably lower price.

    Advice to Management

    How can we be more effective in capturing share of wallet at the small/mid-sized businesses where price is the overwhelming concern and the value-ads are rarely/never considered.
