    Pros

    Had a great boss who listened and cared about their employees. Let us complete work largely our own way.

    Cons

    Got laid off during the pandemic. Any large corporation laying people off in the pandemic I think needs to take stock of their priorities. They spent money on a B list celebrity to make an appearance at a telethon for "morale" but laid an entire branch of people off.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great pay & benefits which included a sizeable profit sharing program. Afordable health, dental, vision, life, short term & long term disability insurance.

    Cons

    Upper management within the Sourcing Division was a revolving door. Within 5 years I had 8 managers, only once did I ever receive a year end review by a manager that I worked for that year making it nearly impossible to move up within the organization. Because of the high turn-round in managers very few of the Sourcing managers had a true understanding of the processes in place; nor were they able to do the job of a Sourcing Specialist. This all contributed to very low morale and a very unhappy & tense working environment. The metrics in place for the Sourcing Specialist were based mostly on speed and volume rather than accuracy & obtaining the business of customers which resulted in sloppy work and employees meeting their metrics oposed to being competitively priced, obtaining sales & providing a positive service for customers.
