    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Still far behind...

    I worked at W.W. Grainger

    Pros

    Great HQ with nice Cafe in Lake Forest
    Work from home on Fridays

    Cons

    Treats Contractors like some 2nd class citizens. It's slightly common in corporate world but it goes an extra mile here...

    No room for new ideas

    Squeezing 40-50 people in one room in the name of AGILE

    Far behind in IT methodologies and lack of knowledge in what is currently new in the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better with treating employees/contractors and they would in turn do better things for company instead of looking for opportunities for jumping out of company.
