Supply Chain Specialist I (Dipendente attuale) – Austin, TX – 26 marzo 2019
Your overall work-load and career advancement opportunities really depend on what team you are a part of in Global Ops and what your rank is. After being hired at the most entry-level position in the Product Planning group, I was eager to work and take on new tasks, get recognized, and move up quickly. I felt that the first manager I had did not support my ambitions and actually tried to restrict me from taking on more responsibility. After 3 months I had a new manager and she seemed a little more invested in finding opportunities for me to grow, but I have also had 3 different directors in the span of 1.5 years and they have all seemed relatively unconcerned with helping me move up.
I am constantly frustrated by the lack of process documentation and standardization across the company which makes the random, urgent requests difficult to accomplish and to measure one's performance against. The days are unpredictable. You could be spending an entire day trying to find productive things to do or you could be bombarded with requests that keep you from doing your daily tasks and then have last minute evening (and morning) calls with the team in Taiwan.
Flexible working hours, casual work environment
Randomly urgent stressful tasks, lack of recognition/appreciation
