    I have been working at Efficio full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Advancement is quick, though not necessarily merit-based. Become an expert in category-centric savings initiatives and data manipulation

    Cons

    I second what I've already seen three times in the previous reviews - the growth explosion in the last few years has recently led to recruitment of quite a few people who are a) unable to perform at the level we need them to b) a bit unprofessional and focused on the wrong things

    Advice to Management

    Retain culture we had three years ago

    Pros

    Great benefits, company culture and good exposure to senior businesspeople

    Cons

    Lowering quality of hires, Procurement focus is intense, Promotions based on time not on merit

    Pros

    Great colleagues, great learning opportunities, fast responsibility, fast track to a higher levels upon decent performance. Overall a very good place to be as an analyst.

    Cons

    Salary not that great compared to hours and de facto responsibility, also lower levels should be granted a bigger pie of the bonus pool to incentivize high performance.

    Advice to Management

    Some Management could benefit from more hands on experience with actual procurement and operations, and act more as thought leaders in teams, as opposed to mostly focusing on stakeholder management and soft skills based stuff.
