      Great place to work

      Pros

      Company is managed well and has a culture aligned with their mission statement. Great supervisors, training, and opportunity to advance. Good work/life balance (there is some schedule flexibility for appointments, and overtime is never an option so there is no pressure to stay late)

      Cons

      Benefits could be better. High expectations and high stress, but it is a sales position after all. A lot of after-call data entry across several different sales software tools is required which takes time away from driving sales. Communication between departments needs improvement.

      Pros

      Great work life balance with solid pay.. Car package w/ 401k benefits

      Cons

      Depend on people within the organization that are not motivated. - too many roles overlap (no clear roles) - Industrial supplies isn't the most flashy product in the world

      Pros

      Pay is good. Stock option is nice. Discount on items is a nice gesture. work life balance is good.

      Cons

      Unfortunately, the company is very saturated with people who have only worked for MSC and do not bring any other skills to the table. Instead of an employee wearing multiple hats, the company will go hire another person so there are ALOT of chiefs and not very many Indians. There is a significant amount of money that the old timers waste because they only know what they know. They want to grow to meet their competitors growth but unfortunatrly that wont happen because there is way to much waste and abuse in the main offices. They could actually take a look at many of the positions and instead of having to go through 5 people to complete on task, it would be better to have one person complete the task and another to do a peer review.
