Most of people in the company are hired to work inside customers operation which are usually other companies from middle to large-sized companies. So your day at work is in the customer site, which in my case was a big computer and manufactorer where I was responsible to bring saving (cost reduction) keeping the quality or increasing it in anything related to indirect costs for the company. I used to analyse contracts to evaluate prices and operations/products envolved in each of them always focused in to find solutions to bring prices down. It could be through changes in the operation of the supplier or changing the supplier through a RFP. The management was good and helpful when pointed some difficulty or barrer in some action/task to negotiate with the customer if necessary. The hard part of the job was the timeframes which were very chalenging. The team that I had with me on that time was the best one until now my working life.
