    Pros

    Fantastic leadership adjustments have made an impact on the business. It is a long process to right the wrongs of former employees who simply didn’t know enough about how to run or be part of an effective procurement services organization – let alone grow it.

    Cons

    No major ones that don't exist at every other big company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    Pros

    -Fast growing company -Able to learn a lot about procurement and eSourcing -Very flexible scheduling -Very open and trustworthy work environment

    Cons

    The pay was not fantastic and responsibilities were not well laid out. The company is growing quickly and does not have a firm foothold on job responsibilities. I expect that, with time, the company will get more organized into a firm corporate structure that they are currently lacking in.

    Pros

    Hard working people with good intentions.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, egos of senior staff and other coworkers, no processess or procedures that are of value, and one main account in the United States. MM4 is a tool and not a long term cure for Xchanging profitability in procurement.

    Pros

    Let me think of a pro.....parking garage is great, exercise room within the building is also valuable, no walls on the cubicle could be a pro to some to be exposed to all to hear and see you all day long.

    Cons

    Before the British came in and took over it was a tolerable place to work. After that all went down hill. Brits said "We listen to the workers and not management cause they know the system and do the work" . Then what happened to our MSA department? The most experience employees we had were fired after reaching a 1m annual goal. Those that were left were looked over for advancement and continue to be treated as illiterate candidates for growth or advancement. The old Senior Management are fearful for their jobs and therefore tell the Brits what they want to hear. We have not had a pay raise in 4 years and the deductible on our health benefits is so high it is not worth having it. When the new manager of our department was brought in she was never introduced to us by management. No email no anything, just this person who showed up one day. Communication and information is not broad-casted to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Do as you say and listen to your employees, they hold the key to Xchanging future. Bring back those at any expense, that ran our cash cow department that is now being run in Texas by people who do not know how to spell "MSA". There has not been any new business here in months and our MSA department is what pays our salaries.
