    Pros

    Good salary, able to develop in each role I've had. Relatively strong culture (positive).

    Cons

    Slow change, tenured leadership with little to no outside experience creates myopic view on the function. This leads to them sometimes missing opportunities or looking to consultants for solutions instead of internal resources.

    Advice to Management

    Use the degreed supply chain professionals and MBAs that you've hired in a more aggressive manner. Expect more of your resources. They have it in them.
