    I worked at Anixter Fasteners full-time

    Pros

    The benefits were good. Many of the prescriptions that my family needed were covered 100%. They offer time off in a timely manner... instead of the accrural system.

    Cons

    Nepotism was on the rise. Compensation is definitely on the low end..and increases were moderate at best. There was limited opportunity for advancement and little support from human resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your dependable employees... instead of the ones who tell the best jokes.

    Overall Anixter is a great company but very political.

    Pros

    Job security is the best with anixter,even when the economy looked gloom it held its ground.so the company in a whole is rock solid.

    Cons

    When it comes to promotions u really must be good with the boss or your experience will not count for anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if only the supervisors cared half as much as i do about this company it would be number 1 in my book.Some supervisors just don,t care.

    There's no way we can hit these bonus targets!

    Pros

    Relatively flexible with work/home life balance, as well as start/end times and personal needs.

    Cons

    Bonus targets are consistently set way too high. Employees only get full bonuses about every 2 or 3 years. FYI, bonuses are a big part of the total compensation package. Also, employees run out of promotional opportunities after a couple years on the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop going outside the company for higher level positions when you have qualified people inside, and loosen up the bonus targets.
