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

Pros

Great people. Future has their fingers in almost every electronic based customer. If there is a circuit board in the product, you can assume Future is their supplier. Working for this company opens up opportunities beyond those available with other employers. Systematic work environment, good management, and great team culture.

Cons

Hard to manage all the supplier relationships when our focus is selling.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When rewarding people, please make sure to rank-and-file people appropriately although there has been a huge improvement in the last year or so.

    Pros

    Stable job, room to grow, overall great people and senior leadership

    Cons

    Slow work flow at times and resistance to some changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop methods to recognize non Marketing, Sales, and Engineering positions. Can be tough though due to less objective available metrics

    Former Employee - Product Marketer in Montreal, QC (Canada)

    I worked at Future Electronics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great extras at the head office: gym, cafeteria, good opportunities for training , a good range of discounts for services and shops, free coffee and tea.
    Great people, good place for networking
    It's a good place to start your career and gain experience

    Cons

    They don't recognize hard workers, they can take advantage of good intentions. Some managers can be very severe and hard to please, tend to micro-manage. There is a lack of respect for lower level positions and elevations are rampant. They don't have much concern for their employees' satisfaction, it even seems like they'd rather have people quit than fire the bad apples.
    You get very little benefit for seniority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees have great ideas on how to improve things but management don't project openness to listen. They should spend more time on their good employees and less on the bad ones. They need to show more recognition for the people who are actually doing good work.
