    Pros

    Great benefits, decent opportunity for finding mentors

    Cons

    Silo'd in many respects. Engineering tosses GSCM around all the time and there isn't much you can do about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GSCM needs to be considered at a higher level and develop a more give and take relationship with the engineering department
