    I worked at Premier Farnell

    Pros

    Decent work / life balance
    Free onsite gym
    Reasonably varied work, lots of new challenges
    Colleagues mostly helpful.
    Personal postage offered at company rates
    Excellent staff discount from CPC. Worth its weight in gold and probably the best thing about working for PF.

    Cons

    Great place to plod along - don't even think of using your brains or initiative because you would be shot down if you try
    No career progression or wage rises unless you were a pretty female or were prepared to brown nose management. I was neither. My tip for getting a 10% wage rise? Leave.
    Truly useless upper-middle management except when it came to micromanaging or bullying subordinates. Then they were world leaders.
    Colleagues were mostly ok but a few real horrors.
    People with low self worth need not apply. This company won't value you either.
    Probably the meanest big company in Yorkshire. For a company that prides itself on being at the bleeding edge of global ecommerce, it was strange to be working with 5 year old laptops and PCs.
    PF have offices all over the world. Chance of you visiting one? Slim to none.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thin out your middle management layer and train up the ones that are left. You need better salaries to retain people.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
