    Pros

    Technology is always changing, and so is what you're working on at Avnet, so it's never boring. Avnet really understands work/family balance, and values it, so most managers allow working remote and nontraditional working hours as long as you're working your 40 hours a week and completing all of your work on time.

    Avnet has a GREAT culture and amazing people to work with (and I'm a millennial). Plus yearly merit raises and a pension after 3 years.

    Cons

    Quite a few levels of approvals, but that's expected.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the people that love Avnet and want to see the organization continue to succeed. Offer more face to face time with employees - even just walking through the office to say hi.

    Pros

    Avnet is a great company to work for, with great benefits that include 401k and pension plan. Global reach allows many international transfer options, and breath of vendor experiences make this company challenging and worth exploring in your job search.

    Cons

    LAC division has been going thru growing pains since being acquired, low professional development options compared to the domestic offices, and lack of upward mobility options as well.

    Pros

    good culture, strong values and relatively stable

    Cons

    for a tech company we have poor implementation of latest technologies - analytics, collaboration and also not culturally leverage the value of remote staff to engage with the rest of the organization

    Advice to Management

    Make specific culture changes to address lack of teamwork for remotes to HQ staff


  10. This company is a pretty good company and really give you the freedom to work at your own pace and that is definitely so

    Pros

    the salary is pretty good for the workload and personal growth seems very linear unless you want to venture into financing or technical service.

    Cons

    Alittle too lax not alot of information is provided directly from supervisor's more of a "self-starter" company for sure. Seems to be hard to climb ladder without a lot of experience.

    Advice to Management

    My advise to upper management is too communicate more with every associate and take more of a focal interest in development then anything else. That will help with customer satisfaction.

    Pros

    Annual promotions in early career and entry level; multiple levels of job; great training opportunities

    Cons

    Once you are at a certain level, they put you where they want you

    Advice to Management

    Very old stuffy atmosphere. Look at the competition. If you want some of today's best talent and melenials, it's time to update your environment, benefits and policies.
