Sr. Manager Strategic Sourcing (Team Lead) (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 April 2017
Account Based Jobs with limited advancement opportunities. Every client has individual team to manage and there are limited budget to hire people therefore, small set of professionals are working to get things done. Overall not a bad company to work with however, after sometime you have to look for other challenges if you would like to grow your career.
Pros
You have a Job
Cons
Limited time opportunities

Very fun workplace with jokes, parties (celebrating birthdays,holiday's...)
