    Great training in business, great opportunity to develop your own customer relations and test sales techniques. Good IT and business systems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either praise the field for their diligent work or migrate to an internet sales model.

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

    Pros

    Good cafeteria, gym...could be a good place to stay till retirement if you're ok with a routine job

    Cons

    Bureaucracy and nepotism is in the blood of company culture. A management team does nothing but overlooks employees and treat them as their slaves.
    Most of work are purely processing and Inefficient, creativity is not encouraged.
    Compensation is low vs. overloaded workloads

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire half of the management team and then the company will have budget to grant all employees a raise

    Pros

    Gym, 3 week vacation every year

    Cons

    Low salary, overloaded workload, have to OT at home,
    Even no windows in the office, no personal life, you have to work like a machine from Monday to Friday.
    80% people are waiting for retire ,HR is always hiring someone who's stupid and slow and then management asks other teammates to help them.the faster you do, the more workload assign to you.
    No any career opportunity for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lots of things need to be improved, hard to tell

    I worked at Future Electronics full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Endless learning potential. Opportunity for career building and changing within one building.
    Some of the best friends you'll ever have will work here.

    Cons

    Upper management tends to be quite dreadful and most have had their souls removed. Having said that; some of the best and worst times of my life took place there. You have to make Future your experience and always remember, take as much from the experience as you can. Use it all to your advantage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too far gone. Being that high up; you've no choice really in order to stay there.

    Waaay too much backstabbing, nepotism, cronyism, unprofessionalism, unethical conduct and legal gray zone navigating.

    Pros

    You will definitely meet competent, professional and occasionally brilliant individuals. Too bad they don't last long.

    Cons

    Where to begin? This is a wholly-privately owned corporation. Forget about any protection (through shareholder/public oversight) that you may expect from a properly-run publically-traded company. Paranoia reigns supreme and there are VPs and senior VPs that have only cronyism to thank for their positions, as most of them exercise what would be considered certainly unethical and borderline illegal behaviour in their day-to-day dealings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. They are broken beyond repair.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunties to grow and develop if you are in one of the main centres. Your ideas can be implemented and made global within a relatively short time if they are good.

    Cons

    Lack of trust to employees, horrible back stabbing politics. If you are in sales, advancement possibilities are very limited if you aren't in one of the three regional HQs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look a lot more at what people actually do and not at what they tell you they do.

    Pros

    An island of English speakers amidst an ocean of French. Multi-unit organization, with branches in over 150 countries. You will meet competent and interesting individuals. Some opportunities for growth, but reserved for cronies.

    Cons

    There is no avoiding the politics. You are either "with us, or against us". Cronyism and nepotism run rampant. Consequently, management, including senior management is populated by paranoid, spineless, back-stabbing, often-incompetent sycophants who will suck the life out of any competent, ethical individual. Unethical and dubious business practices have resulted in ongoing attrition and the outright defections of strategic partners and suppliers. A revolving door of misery. Two stars allocated only due to the calibre of some of its workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. You are broken toys.
