    I have been working at Micro Electronics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Micro Electronics gives you everything you need to succeed, and loves to promote within the company. The Benefits are great, the people are great and overall it has been great working with the company. Getting to know many of my co workers, both at work and after work has created a great environment where everyone is more like equals rather than bosses/employees.

    Cons

    Pay is on the lower side of the spectrum. Still gets very crazy around the holidays because this is still a retail support operation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the employees for the work that they do. You cannot expect your employees to stay around under paid and over worked for too long.

    Pros

    All the worker are very helpful and serve as team work. We believe nothing is impossible if working together.

    It is not easy to grow within the company. Not all managers are on the same page and hard to get support from them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please support your team members and help them to achieve their long term goal within the company.

    Micro Electronics is a private company that has been in business for 30+ years and where the CEO leads the company with the same entrepreneurial spirit and passion that founded the company in the 80's.

    I have been working at Micro Electronics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have seen Micro Electronics grow through the recession of the 80s the boom of the 90s and the recent great recession of the last decade. It is a very stable company. The people that I work for are just great and the people I work with are equally awesome. The health plan is very good as well as vacation and sick time.

    Cons

    I would like to see the day come when retirement benefits are addressed in some way. There are many long term loyal employees at MEI.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay that course and continue to grow

    I have been working at Micro Electronics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been with the company for 17 years and they have always been fair with me and they have always rewarded people who show that they care and take there jobs to another level. I started as regular micro-center employee and have now have a average of 12-16 workers in my area, . I feel we have good training system that allows us to monitor how the new employee is doing to assure proper price-ticket placements.We have a very fair vacation/absence times that allows us to have quality time with our family. also love the employee discounts we get -at our stores

    Cons

    We can always improve on our management team as a whole by keeping the communcation lines open and make it a better operation, as we conitune to grow would like to see the employees rewarded so we can show them how much they really are the backbone for our company,this would help us maintain a happy and postive work-force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep showing us what is expected and how to reach our goals as the best computer store in the world and also keep giving us the tools we need to reach those goals..

    Pros

    Micro Electronics gives you the oppurtunity to grow within the company. It continues to hire within and supports their associates with training, good pay, and great benefits. I have made a long career here at the company with great support from Senior management, and reccomend this company to anyone looking for a great place to work.

    Cons

    Benefits are above average here at Micro Electronics. I would like to see more options with our current 401K plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work and communicate to your middle management. The family atmosphere you have created here makes coming to work each day enjoyable.

    Pros

    * Offers one of the best growth opportunities in the industry; promotes strongly from within. (I myself started in the mail room before working my way up to management)

    * Every decision made by this company is made in the best interest of the customers they serve

    Cons

    I have been working at Micro Electronics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn about the retail business, contributing to a successful Company that is constantly evolving based on what customers want, knowing the executive team is stable and committed and working with talented peers. It never stays the same for long so you are pushed (in a good way) to learn and do more. Seeing peers develop and grow is very motivating. Managers generally are flexible with schedules and promote work/life balance.

    Cons

    There is little turnover and it's a flat organization so promotions can take time. More associates should be encouraged to take training so they are current in their fields. There are managers who are very intelligent but could use help with communication and delivery. No retirement for long-term associates who have helped build the Company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on the future of the business and seek to engage everybody in the Company goals. We are all in this together.

    I have been working at Micro Electronics

    Pros

    I just wanted to write and say what a great company Micro Electronics is to work for. I have been employed with Micro Electronics for a very long and love my job. It is a great working atmosphere. Everyone is very friendly and great to work with. In all my years I have never had a problem with anyone I have ever worked with. Its a nice relaxed atmosphere. Everyone is friendly and very helpful in all areas of the building. Management is also fantastic. They are all so helpful and great to work for. They are also very kind to the employees with pizza days and picnics and great Christmas parties for everyone to enjoy. That is a main reason I have stayed so long and have enjoyed every year I have worked here. I enjoy coming in everyday. It also has excellent vacation and health benefits. There is also a lot of opportunities of advancement and moving up which is nice. They are also very accommodating with there employees when it comes to family and are very fair with everyone. It also offers a really good employee discount on product that has come in handy a lot. I would highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for employment. It is a great place to work.

    Cons

    It could be more consistent on pay increases but other then that I can think of any other cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing the great job you are already doing of making this such a great place to work.

    Pros

    Great mom/pop start up that grew into a bigger company. Loved the relationships with my coworkers as well as the ability to move up within the company. They really believe in promoting from within.

    Cons

    Salaries are not always comparable to industry standards. Needs to come out of the mom/pop mentality if they want to compete on world stage.
