    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Grainger full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    General work life balance, profit sharing and benefits, contributions, etc. Great involvement with community affairs

    Cons

    IT Sr. leadership waffles with vision and direction. typical "flavor of the week" processes. IT Sr leadership will protect buddies. Buddies get promoted into MGMT positions beyond their abilities. Too much action is taken without thorough analysis on the details of a problem\initiative.

    Advice to Management

    actively run thorough analysis on people leaders. how are some perennial high achievers reviewed as poor performers in such a short time within a management change?

    I worked at Grainger for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Stable company with a very diverse workforce. Benefits are in line with top companies

    Cons

    eliminating branch locations and hundreds of local jobs even though locations are profitable. More concerned with shareholders than also worrying about the employees and being a strong partner for both.

    Advice to Management

    Be better at identifying talent and developing them.
