Supply Chain Culture Dangerous!
SCM Sourcing Lead, Strategic Sourcing (Former Employee), Calgary, ABMarch 3, 2014
The philosophy is to 'play the game' . It doesn't much matter your skill set or ability to do your job. Rather, you have to be 'liked' by Managemnet or you will go nowhere! Not a healthy environment.
