    I worked at Avnet Technology Solutions

    Pros

    Good company with solid financials, and has a great reputation as a good place to work at, particularly if you work in San Antonio. The people are mostly great to work with.

    Cons

    If you are on a commission plan, good luck figuring out your pay. Commissions and "actuals" never match. Fiscal monthly cutoffs that can range between 1-7 days difference than true month ends. Timely responses back from co-workers is a bit lacking. A bit too "married" to one large partner.

    I have been working at Avnet Technology Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A good place to be a career worker
    Flexible working options (remote terms)
    Strong Values
    Trying to be relevant in a world that is growing more and more horizontal

    Cons

    Compensation is not great (because margins suck as a distributor)
    Executive management / upper middle managers are old (few young i.e. less than 40)
    Slow decision making / process change and improvement
    Organizational structure is convoluted
    A whole lot of CYA (i.e. normal for stagnate orgs)

    I worked at Avnet Technology Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Pay, people were very nice to work for, benefits were good, health insurance, plus a pension, very rare in these times.

    Cons

    Low profit margins, so may have layoffs, health benefits seem to be going down, tends to be like any big company where upper management doesn't know what is going on a lower levels, individual bosses determine the work experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the slide into being part of the reason why American workers are working a lot harder for less money and lower job security.

    Current Intern - Domain Architect in Phoenix, AZ

    I have been working at Avnet Technology Solutions as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    I was given the freedom to do the job I was hired for. The team I worked on was great and full of very talented people. The compensation was good, however I feel that will dwindle in the near future.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. They have unrealistic expectations on how team leaders are supposed to support and grow their business unit mean while work on projects at the same time. You can't purchase a whole new business division fill it with a bunch of small companies you bought and expect them to be glowing success after only 1 year, integration takes time. Additionally you shouldnt punish the teams that are highly successful, you create fear that no matter how well you perform everyone is at risk.
    Also what company does not have a 401k, this is 2014?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the people you hired for a job do that job, Don't expect them to do 7 other jobs and tell them they are more important for today but ask at the same time why the primary role isn't being performed.

    Pros

    Communication from senior management ok.

    Cons

    No room for advancement, move from customer centric to money centric. Communication from lower management lacking. Is a "do as I say" environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit micro managing. Computer based company but will not use up to date features such as full remote with emeetings.

    Pros

    Comp pretty well, work/life balance is good.

    Cons

    subpar medical, executive heavy with no direction from upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearer defined goals and detail of where the direction of the company is going. Most of this is not filtered down to the worker bees.
