    I worked at Future Electronics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Future taught a different was of servicing the customer that at the time was unique in the Electronic Distribution Field. The owner (Robert Miller) cared passionatley about his people and the customers Future served.

    Cons

    The cons weren't with the company as much as they were with the fast pace of the nature of the industry. Anytime you are selling or providing a service that is different than everyone else, there is always a stress point until you understand the program.

    I have been working at Future Electronics full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with some of the best people in the industry. Friendly people, great amenity, and they encourage work hard and play hard. They will not underpay you and sometimes overpay. If you do good work for them, they will definitely acknowledge it.

    Cons

    if you're a candidate for an advancement in your position, be prepared to take on some additional work on top of your current responsibilities before you actually receive the promotion. I wouldn't say it's much a con.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more team events to create better bonding

    Pros

    Very enjoyable place to work. Great leadership and the company will be at the leading edge of the distribution for many years to come.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are differences in the way business is done in different global regions. This will exist with any globalized company, but for me, it's can be frustrating at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Very strong and focused.

    Some GMs and GSMs are not the strongest and customer penetration sometimes is more difficult than it should be.

    You got the best technical team but you don't push performance hard enough. We can be doing that much better. Don't be affraid to shake things up.

    Pros

    People here are very friendly, and have a big believe in the vision of the organization. The level of experience and professionalism for majority of employees is high and you are always learning on the job and professional supplier training modules. A ton of training.....maybe be too much.

    Cons

    Even though they preach about having work-life balance, it sometimes difficult to with the amount of work needed.
