    I worked at Univar full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing people to work with.
    Work load was good.

    Cons

    Can be chaotic at times when colleagues quit which then leads to staff shortage.

    Advice to Management

    Probably need more staffs in the AP department especially the VCCs.
