    I worked at Xchanging full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Located in the heart of the Chicago financial district.

    Cons

    Senior management team is a joke. Sit through a meeting with the CEO and you'll know what I mean.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional. Get to know your most valuable employees.

    Pros

    This review is about the Chicago office and not any other office of Xchanging.
    Nice and friendly people.

    Cons

    The Chicago office is basically a call center with a couple of technology people and senior management. The Procurement division has been moved into Technology division and they are laying off people everyday. Around the mid part of the year, they were laying off the lower level employees and now they the senior management people are getting laid off.

    The technology platform is a mess and they rely on foreign development agencies to do all the work. These agencies have a lot of leverage on Xchanging and have turned things around to their benefit.

    I have friends who are still at Xchanging Chicago and they tell me that people are quitting every day. The ones who are still there are looking for something else.

    Avoid this disaster of a company.

    Advice to Management

    Shut shop and cut your losses. This company is beyond redemption.

    Pros

    If you are incredibly lazy you would enjoy working here.

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

    Pros

    Hard working people with good intentions.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, egos of senior staff and other coworkers, no processess or procedures that are of value, and one main account in the United States. MM4 is a tool and not a long term cure for Xchanging profitability in procurement.

    Pros

    Let me think of a pro.....parking garage is great, exercise room within the building is also valuable, no walls on the cubicle could be a pro to some to be exposed to all to hear and see you all day long.

    Cons

    Before the British came in and took over it was a tolerable place to work. After that all went down hill. Brits said "We listen to the workers and not management cause they know the system and do the work" . Then what happened to our MSA department? The most experience employees we had were fired after reaching a 1m annual goal. Those that were left were looked over for advancement and continue to be treated as illiterate candidates for growth or advancement. The old Senior Management are fearful for their jobs and therefore tell the Brits what they want to hear. We have not had a pay raise in 4 years and the deductible on our health benefits is so high it is not worth having it. When the new manager of our department was brought in she was never introduced to us by management. No email no anything, just this person who showed up one day. Communication and information is not broad-casted to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Do as you say and listen to your employees, they hold the key to Xchanging future. Bring back those at any expense, that ran our cash cow department that is now being run in Texas by people who do not know how to spell "MSA". There has not been any new business here in months and our MSA department is what pays our salaries.

    Appraisal process is very bed, even since last two years no appraisal.

    Manager does not listen to you.

    Company provide paid parking in same building they are here to earn from employee.

    After marger thing are very very bad.

    For any hardware resources there are too many process, it takes approximately one year.

    Uncertainty about job safety. And no project, no choice if you want to change team.

    Advice to Management

    Please Hold them they are at the best at work.
