Decent Company if you get out of Operations

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Procurian

ProsExcellent experience if you apply yourself.

ConsThere is a difficult gap between operations and category management / sourcing. They treat the operations team horribly. The operations management team should be replaced with people that actually care and value their employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees better

Be Very Cautious.

Program Leader (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Procurian full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFast growing company with an entrepreneurial dynamic.

ConsSenior management are "bleacher coaches". One in particular thinks he can run the show from his bedroom in Chicago behind a command cell called "Sales Force.com". People get frustrated and leave. High turnover.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemember you are in a professional services business. Professional services are very "people centric". Treat your people like your most prized asset because, "They are dummy".

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Hard for middle management to get ahead unless you threaten to quit or go above peoples heads

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
King of Prussia, PA

I have been working at Procurian full-time

ProsThe HQ in KOP is really nice. Open spaces and high ceilings. There are really great people in the rank and file who really want to help their clients.

ConsIf your in middle management in a practice its very hard to get ahead. They have programs for advancement for junior personal but nothing for people further along in their career. Practice leaders do not give their subordinates exposure to senior leadership. Rank and file sourcing folks feel trapped with no clear direction on where their career goes next. Don't believe the company hype that the organization is flat and new ideas are welcome (most get shot down unless your manager can take credit for it in part).

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior leadership needs to stop taking for granted that the practice leads are giving them the whole picture. Perhaps start instituting 360 evaluations where junior employees can anomonously provide perspective. I promise you will be surprised.

Not for everyone

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
King of Prussia, PA

I worked at Procurian full-time for more than a year

ProsThe open working environment allows for a lot of collaboration and supports speed of working environment.

ConsNot everyone can work in an open environment like this. There is no privacy or personal space and even managers sit elbow to elbow. You have to be able to block out a lot of noise and distraction. Introverts may struggle with this. The company is a bit of a sweat shop hiring younger employers for lower wages and often paying less than cost of living increases. It can be a good stepping stone to other procurement roles. It's an interesting experience but not everyone's cup of tea.
