    I worked at Premier Farnell full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free Fruits : Farnell is very proud about this as they are reminding it to employees in every meeting

    Cons

    Nice name on CV as people don't know how unprofessional they are..
    Low Level education among managers, team leaders (mostly high school graduates) which is very weird for a technology company.
    Office culture: Be present and smile, you don't have to work
    Sales: Sales people (internal) are not engineers and have no idea what Farnell is selling.
    If you really try to do stg and work , they don't like you because you make them look lazy. So, if you want to chill, sit down and do nothing all day then this is the perfect company for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Opening offices or making shipments everywhere doesn't make you Global company.
    You have to stop pushing your customers to work only in your way. Be flexible for customers and sometimes check what are your manager's doing. People are leaving due to unqualified and uneducated (mostly high school graduate) team leaders and managers. Try to increase the general education level in the company as you are loosing all the good people. Check Employee Retention rate.
