Current Employee - Procurement Specialist

I have been working at IBM full-time

Pros

Wonderful working environment, culture, people, and strategy.

Cons

Not that much I can say.

Former Employee - Technical Customer Service Specialist Conceirge

I worked at Amazon full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great Benefits Nice Atmosphere Great Location Flexible Friendly Management

Cons

Lengthy Interviews Not much support to move roles internally

Advice to Management

It would be great to see more internal programs to assist employees move to other roles. Provide more support and training to technical and non technical staff will help employees career growth and... ultimate decrease high staff turnover rate.
