I have been working at Avnet full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Stability - many, many people have been there for 10, 15, 20, even 30 years. Respect a life/work balance. Casual athmosphere.

Cons

pay is at the bottom of the scale. being promoted from within requires that you make it known you want to move around/up within the company and continuously be vocal about it. Very easy to get complacent and pigeonholed only to find yourself doing exactly the same thing in 15 years. Not that there is anything wrong with that, if it's what you want.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lots of overqualified people in the ranks that could do more. need to develop a way to identify the hidden talent and capitalize on it.

    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 worked at Avnet full-time for less than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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
