Pros

Avnet is the worldwide leader in electronic parts supplying the electronics industry. Consumers don’t realize that electronics are made from a combination of microelectronic manufacturers. Most people just see the brand name on the end product and thinks that’s where it’s made. The truth is that each electronic component is an equal piece of the puzzle making that product work. Avnet’s role is getting these parts to companies at the best price so they can build electronics.

Cons

There's fierce competition in the electronics industry over pricing. Pricing of parts determines the final retail costs of products. A majority of the parts are made in Asia.

Advice to Management

The management is world class globally managing parts for the latest technology to hit the market.

    Pros

    Most of the employees are very helpful and nice.

    Cons

    Low pay. No clear communication. A lot of finger pointing, micro management

    Advice to Management

    Very disappointed that my boss was not the one to inform me about getting laid off. Instead, she had aother manager do that. Never did I get a call or email or anything. Very upsetting that someone can be that inconsiderate in a situation like that


  2. Too many chiefs

    Pros

    Great opportunities for non-sales personnel

    Cons

    Management is clueless. They always talk about how great their people are then they hire from the outside just to see those individuals leave soon after.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking out for yourself and your bonuses - look out for your employees!!
