    Future Electronics was a wonderful company to work for

    Division Manager/Regional Manager (Former Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsFuture 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.

    ConsThe 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Filled with challenges and opportunity for growth.

    OUTSIDE SALES (Current Employee)

    ProsWorking 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.

    Consif 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 Senior ManagementNeed more team events to create better bonding

    Good place to work with extremely bright technical people

    Field Applications Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsStrong technical team across the board makes it an excellent place to learn and excel. Structured and efficient design flow makes it easy to learn and perform.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou 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.

    Unique working environment and friendly culture

    Advanced Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsPeople 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.

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