    I have been working at Heineken as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    the interview was quick and seems more like a conversation but it was really oriented on what you want to achieve and your competencies

    Cons

    The interviewr was not really on time due to time zone and the time change (winter/summer).
    They let me without news for a while then they phone me to ask me to be on place ASAP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Heineken full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    An organisation / department in growth, with current leadership expanding scope. This makes it very exciting as new markets are added all the time, Asia, Africa etc. Many of which offer new challenges and difficulties for Procurement to overcome.
    Procurement has seen major investment the last few years, with a lot of training on new processes and systems (mainly SAP). Spend Analysis is virtually global (with data quality issues) Supplier Relationship Management is mainly European, but gives great visibility of what is happening with suppliers.
    Management are expanding reach and grip of Procurement. Its exciting and fast moving. Loads of opportunities to contribute to cost saving projects and to do bigger contracts with wider scope.
    Get to work with colleagues literally all over the world.

    Cons

    Sometimes confusing which OpCos you can and cannot work with. Often the 'board mandate' for Procurement doesn't mean much to OpCos who ignore it. A real test of influencing skills but it wastes time. The pace of change in Procurement is probably the highest of all departments in Heineken. Being based in Zoeterwoude its not as international as some other head office departments (if you ask nicely management are sometimes flexible).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to international influence. Does everyone in charge have to be dutch? Stop buying new companies before we integrate the last acquisition. Pay system is dutch, flat pay.
