an innovative, high-level exposure job within a typical conservative functional organization
Global Procurement Business Analyst (Former Employee), Evansville, IN – July 14, 2014
Pros: high-level exposure, innovative projects, great management
Cons: lack of authority from top management, organization silo effect.
As a procurement business analyst, I reported directly to the CPO(Chief Procurement Officer), the head Global Procurement Department. 50% of my job assignment was to develop innovative analytic tools, such as econometrics model, commodity category deep dives, etc. to support the CPO on strategic decision making. The rest 50% of my work was supporting – more... four category directors, my internal customers, on their daily RFX activities, contract negotiations,etc with data gathering and analysis.
The greatest learning experience was that I have witnessed and participated in the centralization reform of the procurement organization. Working under the CPO, I have also learned his strategic way of thinking, leadership skills, and business insights.
But this learning experience also happened to be the biggest challange though out my job. The resistance of change from all the regional procurement organizations and the Silo between regions have even made simple jobs such as data gathering very difficult sometimes. Essentially, due to the fact that department was relatively new and the lack of authority from the top management, the challenges were faced by every member of the team.
The most enjoyable part was leading innovative projects. Researching and realizing theory that I learned from school was very rewarding. – less

Consumer Resource Specialist (Former Employee), Evansville, IN – September 26, 2013
Pros: the department eats a lot, and the monthly meetings are exciting
Cons: the work schedules, the people who call, the fraud that goes on with people who call in, and the support from supervisors. they dont readily take escalated calls.
The hardest part of the job was speaking with the heartbroken mothers and fathers who had lost a child through miscarriage, or those who had lost the mother through child birth and hearing them cry, or curse at you for sending them free products of which they did not want, and it served as a reminder of their loss. The most enjoyable part of the job – more... would be the parents who showed so much enthusiasm and excitement about their new baby or older baby and wanted to get free products and how they tell all their friends about Enfamil products and the free family beginnings program. – less

I like my job, it isn't stable, I am temporary and going to be laid off in a couple months. That's why I am searching for a new career I can settle at and not have to worry about trying to look for another job ever again.
Planning Assistant (Current Employee), Zeeland, MI – August 8, 2012
Pros: excellent pay
Cons: complex products
Mead Johnson is a difficult place to work, due to the complexity of the product. However, the pay is excellent and there are good benefits. The organization runs 24/7 and produces large quantities of product, so there is a large workload.
