Great place for exposure to best practice (especially Supply Chain) but they place a low value on people.

    Pros

    Work life balance. The company allows you to work from home when needed.

    Cons

    The company is constantly restructuring, spending all of their time focused on the bottom line and very little to no time on its actual employees.

    Transitions between roles are stretched out over months causing employees to work multiple jobs and long hours.

    Poor Management and turn over leaves employees either zero management or multiple mangers in one year.

    Programs in place for mentors or employer advancement are poorly managed unless you are a member of their SCMP program. Full time employees have the option to join a management program however the likelihoods of a promotion is low.

     Regular employee programs are so poorly managed that employees tend to wait over a year for a mentor.

    Unless you are hired from the outside compensation is very low. Recent college graduates are not offered competitive salaries and must leave the company in order to receive industry standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some management and focus on the employees.
