    I have been working at Avendra

    Pros

    At Avendra, they care about developing employee skills through in-house education, special projects, and team activities. They provide good benefits and social activities to promote teamwork.

    Cons

    No major downsides. Being a smaller company, there is more competition for promotions. Because we sell a service, there is a strong emphasis on increasing sales to maintain staffing and compensation.

    I worked at Avendra full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice office, some friendly people. Lots of people who know what they're doing. Can be interesting if you like writing a lot and presenting Excel data in multiple formats so that it meets the standards of the VPs.

    Cons

    Training is hard and if you don't get everything down the first or second time through then you're questioned. Hard to know exactly what your job is coming in and they keep changing the titles of the department you work for. Everyone is very focused on what they're doing which makes interaction and learning hard. Managers and VPs are very strict as to what they're looking for when you turn something in and if it doesn't match that exactly then you have to redo part of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a training plan for those brand new to the company so that they know what to do.
