Hey Reginald, thank you stopping by. Maybe I shouldn’t generalise but from my limited experience, I have been told a lot of times, don’t jump around. A lot of senior people tend to frown on any time less than 5 years in a company. Maybe where you are 18 months is the norm.
You are right about the purchasing bit, it is an exercise in control. Which is why we get so pissed when the smaller things don’t work out, like parcels not getting delivered, because we believe we have control over them.
Please feel free to add to the moment it certainly makes things livelier :) :)
