    Pros

    -Working w/ smart teammates.
    -Lots of variety of training for soft skills and technical skills
    -a few fun and food filled company sponsored events through out the year / decent culture.

    Cons

    - as said in every other review, there are growing pains and advancement can be slow or even non existent.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of people seem to be complaining about salaries and growth. There is nothing wrong with valuing your employees :)

    I have been working at Avendra full-time

    Pros

    Amazing culture, great intelligent and hardworking people, efficient. Despite the recent acquisition by Aramark, everyone is equally excited for the future of the company. Lots of great social events and also a good learning environment. Overall, they have a lot of highly experienced professionals within the procurement field and you can learn a lot here as you grow within your career path.

    Cons

    Slow to get promoted, not really clear path in terms of timing.

    Advice to Management

    Give clearer advice in terms of pathway to promotions
    Pay should be more competitive with the current market. Despite the fact that they do say that the pay is as equal with the current market, it is not as competitive as many competitors that do a similar line of work.

    Thank you for the wonderful review. We think our culture is special, too. That is why we have such high tenure. You mention slower promotions. We are working on that and hope with our recent... More

    I worked at Avendra full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Experienced team with deep knowledge of the hospitality industry. Health insurance is above average and retirement match program is the same most companies will offer.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Silo work culture. No real growth opportunities, luck of empowerment. Zero tolerance to different ideas, work approach, etc.
    Salaries are below market.
    There is not diversity in upper management

    Advice to Management

    Process is not the answer to all issues. Use the knowledge of the employees and empower them to take decisions.

    I was happy to see that you enjoyed your teammates and thought our benefits were good. Obviously, I am concerned that you thought that the company was too siloed and process oriented. As to growth... More
