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

    Pros

    I have worked at Mouser for over 10 years and look forward to going to work daily. It is a team atmosphere with everyone working together towards the success of the business globally. Taking care of our customers and providing service excellence is a top focus and supported from the leadership team. The benefits options are also good. Mouser is growing quickly and it is great to be a part of the growth and success.

    Cons

    With the growth comes being very busy, but I enjoy staying busy.

    Pros

    People are great! Great food days...

    Cons

    Growing to quick, not enough time in a day to feel that you got what should be done. Also underpaid all over depts. Instead of giving out a shirt every year why not add funds to employees that work hard and play hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell your employees Thanks in person and for all you do. Have a open mind to improvements.

    I have been working at Mouser Electronics full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company has a friendly and family-oriented atmosphere. From the moment you walk through the door you are greeted with a smile.
    The company is growing and has many opportunities for individuals to grow both personally and professionally.
    Mouser also engages employees by organizing events and other team building activities that help build solid relationships.

    Cons

    The fast-paced growth that Mouser has seen over the last several years does require individuals who can adapt easily. Unfortunately, that type of growth and environment doesn't match every person's personality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management can be seen walking throughout the entire campus and are down to earth people. It's great to be at a company that has easy access to all levels of management and truly care about the people who make the company function effectively every day.

    Pros

    I have worked at Mouser for 2 years and enjoy coming to work every day. The people are great and I like working for a growing company. I believe that there are growth opportunities in my future.

    Cons

    The company is growing so fast that everyone is very busy. My day flies by and I am busy from the moment I clock in until the moment I clock out. That's ok though, I like being busy!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep this company growing and promote me! Haha! Seriously, your people, like me, are working really hard, so keep on encouraging and supporting us.

    I have been working at Mouser Electronics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly and stable work environment, excellent opportunity for learning and advancement, Good pay - saw other reviews that say its low...Not true, I've experienced it myself - perform well and you will reap the benefits! Never had a lay off - how many companies can say that? Mouser cares about its people. Benefits are good - if you don't think so try Obamacare! Company makes nice contribution to HSA to give employees money to help with healthcare costs. Fun activities and charitable company. Truly an Open Door Philosophy.

    Cons

    Employees that don't want to contribute 100% and whine about the littlest thing. You didn't have to come to Mouser and Mouser didn't have to hire you - give 100+% and succeed! Employees need to communicate with management about any concerns in an appropriate manner - whining to your friends won't fix anything - talk to someone that can actually help you. Figure out what you can do to improve yourself and fulfill your potential vs blaming others for everything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does a good job being available to employees - just a reminder that even though Mouser is one of the busiest place you will ever work, always make time to listen to your employees and respond appropriately (even if not immediately...its ok to say you'll get back to them...but do it) - employees are your biggest asset.

    Pros

    There were no pros in my experience there.

    Cons

    Benefits are crap, management is incompetent, and CEO is a complete moron that doesn't have any business being a janitor there. They want everyone that works there to have a degree and they expect these folks to accept $11.00 an hour and then act offended if you try to negotiate as if they are being extremely generous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should all quit and work at gas station.

    Pros

    Good time off benefits. Clean, inviting workplace. Coworkers are great. Management does a great job of pretending they care about their employees. Free parking. Well maintained grounds.

    Cons

    Managers that are always right. Many believe they know everything and when you bring up a new idea, they have either thought of it (they claim) or tell you it's not feasible before you even explain it. They tell you to demonstrate initiative, but when you do, they tell you that you should have run it past them first. Very frustrating If you're not one of the chosen ones, sometimes life can be very hard. Bend over and take it then thank them for it or you're left in the dust. Raises are typically <1% all the way up to almost 2% per year...even after they claim we're making more money every year. Salaried management even has their own parking lot, lest they be forced to mingle with their lowly workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a management class...learn the people side and put it into practice. Quit pretending you know everything. It's people that keep Mouser growing.

    I have been working at Mouser Electronics as an intern

    Pros

    I love the company culture and how fast it's been growing. They've never laid somebody off and have never had any debt, so that's really nice. You know it's a stable company because it's a Berkshire hathaway company and Warren Buffett wouldn't invest in something he didn't believe in.

    Cons

    It doesn't pay too well unless you're gonna be a web-developer or some high up big wig. They also are constantly hiring new people. There's also a high turnover rate, meaning for some reason employees come and go pretty quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more organized on what duties go in what area of the company, there can be some confusion.
