    Pros

    Exposure to many different aspects of the procurement department needs and skills.

    Cons

    Work can be very redundant with hundreds of the same email sent daily.

    Advice to Management

    Look for opportunity to streamline process in order to make different tasks more efficient. For example the same data is used in three places when a vendor does not ship an item that was on a purchase order when it could entered and uploaded once with three markers and/or comments.

    Pros

    Great communication and open door policy with management, wonderful leaders in place, strong team building, supportive management, opportunity for career advancement as well as career relocation, not a lot of employee turnover - strong retention, management continuing to improve in the workplace with suggestions from employees, C&S encourages employee growth and development, and the company is very involved with the community as well as charities.

    Cons

    It can be stressful at times, and there seems to always be a strong sense of urgency but you are supported by your management - and you're supported by your team. So although stress is a con to this job, you're always backed by your coworkers and everyone is always willing to jump in and help when you need assistance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting work life balance and encouraging people to utilize their work from home days, and encouraging them to take their lunch to step away from their desk - this is noticed, and appreciated. Continue to keep on motivating us to take walks outside, and to take time away from our desk during the workday.
