Pros

Nice employees. Stable company (never had a lay-off). Growing company (almost doubled in size in the last two years). Pay is fair.

Cons

For longer term employees, they may only make the same as new employees hired. In my experience, when these employees bring it up, increases are given. But it would be better if management recognized this earlier.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have done a great job at growing the company, but remember all of the 'little people' that helped you grow it. The best is still yet to come, but only if each and every employee feels appreciated.

    Pros

    Vacation and time allotments are very competitive and it is definitely a growing industry. Many VP and upper mangers have an open door policy.

    Cons

    It seems that since becoming a Berkshire Hathaway company, they are trying to increase the bottom line by lowering starting salaries and not promoting from within to prevent paying higher salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change is good sometimes, and necessary. We are in the 2nd decade of the 21st century. In order to retain good employees, understand that the industry is growing and offer more salary increases along with the internal promotions.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and very friendly employees to work with. Very laid back, low expectations and accountability make the retention rate high in the company. Can listen to music while you work in a lot of positions - minor perk but nice. Solid benefits with employee discounts.

    Cons

    No career paths or direction for any employees. Most employees, roughly 80% are hourly workers or employees that have very simple tasks that anyone can do. Most of these 80% make very little money because of this. Very low feedback from management and it is very biased and one sided when it comes to reviews. Very low pay when it comes to the average amongst other similar positions in electronic component distribution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a consultant or college level management who understand business practices and concepts besides just following your competition. Get more resources and employees to help and make time for your employees. If you expect to compete with your competition on their level you need to incorporate some of their best practices.
