I love the purchasing part of my job, but I do not get the best support from management. We were bought out in 2010 and the new company does not have the best benefits, there is also a lot of red tape to get anything done now. It seems like they just like to waste paper. I used to be able to create new vendors on my own, now it all has to go through the corporate office and it takes at least a week.
The people I work with are great, I have worked with most of them for 20+ years.
