    Pros

    Positive work environment, good benefits, you can create a path for personal growth.

    Cons

    Distribution, so product lines come and go, creating a level of churn. Most of the lines are large and stable, so it depends where you're going to work.

    I worked at Avnet Technology Solutions as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The internship program is very robust and structured, and the company provides a lot of opportunities for interns to meet and learn from senior executives. All of the people at the company were very kind and a pleasure to work with. For full time employees, there is very flexible scheduling with some teams allowing employees to work remotely from home up to 3 days a week. There is a lot of opportunity for lateral moves within the company to different teams and functional areas. This is a good company to work for if you want to be in the Phoenix area as it is one of the largest employers in the valley.

    Cons

    The company does not have a lot of name recognition outside of Arizona/the electronics industry. While lateral moves are common, it was my observation that promotions were infrequent and it would be difficult to climb the ladder, even for high performing individuals. I attribute this (as well as the average pay) in part to the low-margin nature of the distribution industry. There are not great opportunities for supply chain professionals in the company - most of the "supply chain" functions are related to materials management. This is a job that will become less necessary in the coming years as B2B ordering becomes more robust. Like many other large companies, Avnet has problems with silos existing between the functional areas of the company and the different brands they support. Not a big deal, but it does lead to occasional frustration and inefficiency.

    Management. They all act elite. No direction. Even if you rank 4 out of 4 you still seem to walk out of a review feeling like you suck and could have done better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    too many chiefs not enough indians! Ruled by fear every single day! I was made to cry a million times by at least 6 different managers in my 10+ years there.
