    I worked at Anixter International full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed, open door environment, but that is changing for the worst. Great coworkers, cooperative attitude of helping out. Generally not a lot of silos and turf wars. Pay is low, but not bad... heavily skewed to top management. Location in Glenview is fairly nice. 401k has 6% company match.

    Cons

    Becoming a faceless "big business". Very little diversity: Nearly all VPs are married white males! Management seems focused on costs to the exclusion of growth, employee development and satisfaction.
    Not much career development unless you are in sales.
    A 3% raise is considered great! Many years of no raises, for anyone...except for top management.
    The fewest number of holidays I have ever seen: 6. Pension is largely a joke. Medical plan is United Healthcare: subpar.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember what made the company great: its people. Treat them well while you take more than your share.

    Pros

    Great at giving you time off

    Cons

    You need to follow their plan! If you go up against the throne, guess what. Required to work at least 10 hours if not more. If you get ask to come up front, your gone, so pack everything now!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees fall into one bucket, supervisors fall into another bucket, managers are supreme beings. POOR SUPERVISORS GET THE SHAFT.
