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

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Avnet full-time for more than 5 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

    Great people, flexible work schedules, great exposure to many tech companies

    Cons

    Although I was only an intern for 3 months, I feel as full-time employees have little room to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so protective about your business units. Share employees between business units and be open to employee growth whether it is in your business unit or another function.
