Pros: respected & asked advice by co-workers, and making the many friendships i had there!
Cons: you are just a "number", no allegiance anymore.
Typical Day is a misnomer, there is no typical day in my position. I can have the most detailed and laid out plans for my day and within an hour, I am in ten (10) completely different areas!
The job was family-oriented and I was going to finish my career there. Even though I was the "lead" in all external initiatives, on many committees and a major – more... project to redesign the Finance (not just Purchasing) Website. No one ever took the time to look at this involvement along with my normaql job functions. New corporate managers were put in place, and now Princeton is in a new renaissance period, another (my third 3rd) redeployment of resources and policies to try it another way! So, with that happening and no appreciation for what was being accomplished overall, it was time to move on! It is still one of the largest employers in Mercer County, but it si nothing like it used to be...especially when they let a professional admired & respected by internal and external constituants with 29 years experience and commitment to the job, and they let him go within a couple months If you do consider working there, be aware!
The MOST enjoyable aspect of my employment there? It was helping to make the external departments lives easier in their workflow, answering their questions, and teaching them valuable purchasing tools, for which they were forever grateful and appreciative, giving me a feeling accomplishment. I loved that part! – less
