    Pros

    Many smart people who are a lot of fun to work with. Dedicated to providing the best service and solution for clients and always looking for ways to improve. Great place to work for people who's career is procurement. Good benefits and great open, collaborative culture.

    Cons

    Very stable management team has limited growth for next set of managers, however consistent global growth is providing many opportunities. Maintaining a good work life balance can be challenging depending on the role and client life cycle phase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on strategy, supporting employees as company grows into its next phase and ensure you are open to all growth opportunities for employees.

    Pros

    in depth experience into a growing industry. You can learn a lot of good information and skills that will be valuable later on

    Cons

    very specialized - which is good if you intend to stay in procurement outsourcing - but if you go anywhere else, you will find that your skills, while valuable are niche.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify the upper management to include fresher talent - the same mix of people may make for consistency but does little for innovation

    Pros

    Growing, successful company. Smart people. The open office environment really is great, if it works for you. Technology to support your work is fine. Management is sales and client focused, which is both a plus and a minus.

    Cons

    Open office environment doesn't work for everyone. Management is focused on clients, not internal organization, which can be nice, but can also make you feel ignored.

    Pros

    Decent pay after you fight for it. Nice stepping stone before you move on to another position. Can learn a wide array of things about a particular career

    Cons

    Senior management is talented but sometimes mis directed. There is too much emphasis placed on margin and profit and a complete lack on customer service. Because of this i think there will either be an exodus of customers in the next 5 years or a change in the way leadership treats the customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Margins are very important, we are all in this to make money. Sometimes we need to accept a lower margin on products or offerings that are mature at a specific client or that we do not have a critical mass of experience in. I think far too often we oversell what we have done and are capable of doing and then back track and lean on the original scope of work draft or project plan. It may be true the customer did a poor job of scoping out the project but at the end of the day we need to be experts and ensure the customers make the right decisions. They are relying on us to know what they dont know, all too often we are both on the same learning curve. I think that is a poor business model.

    Pros

    Great flexibility and many opportunities for growth and promotion. A company that offers great financial stability and supports employees. Great benefits package.

    Cons

    Administrative workload is higher than at other consultancies. Promotions are based on project management, nor procurement accomplishments. Travel is reduced to your assigned area.
