    I worked at Avnet Electronics Marketing

    Pros

    People are very friendly
    High interaction rate with people from almost every electronics based companies (i.e. Samsung, Intel, Fairchild semiconductors, etc.)

    Cons

    A ton of work to do at quarter end and from what I've heard EVEN more work to do at fiscal year end.
    I felt it was very group segmented didn't really get the feel of one autonomous organization.

    I worked at Avnet Electronics Marketing

    Pros

    Benefits are average and suitable. The work life balance is good and communication is practiced within the ranks.

    Cons

    If you don't mind being over looked due to favoritism and not being part of the good old boys crowd than I would not recommend the company. There is a lot of disappointed managers who are not promoted and only the favorites get recognized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to hear the voice from lower ranks and stop the philosophy of competition between divisions and start acting as a company with the same focus. Upper management is too separated from what is really happening within the workforce.

    Pros

    Paid time off, medical, dental and vision benefits, 401k and pension options, willingness to work with the personal schedules of employees.

    Cons

    lack of communication between management and employees, lack of upward mobility in relevant training and career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to be restructured in a way that management understands the needs of the company and does not only include decision makers at the executive level.

    No opinion of CEO
