I have been working at Premier Farnell full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Focused on employee engagement, talent development and employee well-being. Socially responsible and ethical company. Customer focused with great emphasis on customer satisfaction.

Cons

Lacks the consistency in delivery with some of the great initiatives. Not the best paying employer in the region or industry. Middle management needs to up their game significantly in most areas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management should focus on better employee remuneration to retain talent.

    Pros

    Lots of intereting people. successful Global Company

    Cons

    Complicated structure.
    Managers not skilled
    Lack of organisation and control
    Too many meetings

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managemnt need to go back to basics and sort out the core business and understand what employes want, not what is easy for them t provide. Bonuses were not paid even though the company made £100million profit. also get rid of managers who don't preform and don't know the job, not move them to another department, this is a business not training school.
