Great company, just wasn't what I was looking for.

Production Engineering (Former Employee)
Chandler, AZ

I worked at Avnet Technology Solutions as an intern for less than a year

ProsFamily matters to this Fortune 500 company and it is a great place to gain professional experience. Values are great and the company takes care of their employees from what I experienced.

ConsMost people working there are older so it does not appeal to the younger generation looking for a modern workplace.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't let politics and favoritism get in the way of productivity.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Very corporate work environment but a rewarding internship experience.

Marketing Intern (Former Employee)
Tempe, AZ

I worked at Avnet Technology Solutions as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe HP marketing department put together fun activities/dinners/competitions.
Breakfast is provided on Fridays.
The HP marketing team was very friendly and helpful during my internship.
Great internship program with 25-50 other interns.
I was kept busy with meaningful work and was able to be creative with my projects.

ConsFor me personally, all of the cons came back to the corporate work environment, which is the norm for all other corporations but it just isn't for me. Aside from being corporate, Avnet didn't really have any cons.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

HR Recruiting is in the Stone Ages - Work Hours 60+ expected, nights weekend responses almost required. HR Has no life.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Avnet Technology Solutions full-time for more than a year

ProsThey were paying recruiters above the average, especially IT.

ConsRecruiting Leadership in the Stone Ages, Provide no support of team, Work 60+ hours required evening and weekends , many people leave here... search LinkedIn, you'll find turnover high for good reason.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Place to Work

Solutions Support Specialist (Current Employee)
Tempe, AZ

I have been working at Avnet Technology Solutions full-time for more than a year

ProsIncredible people to work with, open and honest environment. The management will often let you work in other areas if it interests you and you often get free reign on trying new projects that aren't even focused on your department in order to grow your repertoire of knowledge.

ConsPolitics, politics, politics. Oftentimes favorites get more flexibility- and sometimes management plays favorites.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at people's skills and contributions not just recent accomplishments.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
