    OSA

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. They offer great benefits, company car, gas card, and lots of sales support. You will have a set portfolio in which you will have to Manage and grow. Your primary objective as an OSA is to be the feet on the street. Quotes are prefered to be done by the inside sales team which frees up alot of your time. The goals are obtainable.

    Cons

    Slow career growth and not a lot of room for upward mobility. The company would rather hire from outside the company to fill management roles. There is so much red tape that sometimes its hard to get things done but not impossible.

    Pros

    Company car, not much else.

    Cons

    Too many lousy middle managers! A company that can't get out of their own way. Grainger eats MSC for lunch on a daily basis. Inside sales people aren't held accountable for mistakes they make that results in lost sales.
