    I worked at Abatix full-time

    Pros

    Individuals at Abatix are great folks, hardworking, and great at what they do. Laidback atmosphere.

    Cons

    Limited room to grow at the corporate level, however, the company is growing at a steady rate, which should open up more opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Seek greater executive alignment, and drive change down through the organization.

    Pros

    Growing company that provides opportunities for innovative thinking people.

    Great work environment. A family environment where co-workers genuinely care about each other.

    Company leadership is forward thinking and values input from all levels.

    Stable company due to industry diversification.

    Cons

    Vacation policy could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep the small feel even while the company is growing. Continue listening to employees and being flexible.

    I worked at Abatix (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company as a whole is a good company to work for. They care about their employees and go out of their way to make the working environment fun, company wide. Most employees are there for the long haul because of this. Great vacation package. They treat their customers like gold. Each branch hosts a large party for all their customers every year. Everyone has a wonderful time, including employees.

    Cons

    The health plan they use is based out of TX and is not very well established in the state in which I worked making it challenging to find drs that accepted the plan. As with most companies, the Customer Service Reps are not recognized like they should be, although they did, start allowing the CSRs to attend the yearly sales meetings about three years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Corp should have a better idea what is going on at each branch. I feel they should give out evaluations on each Branch/Regional Manager to each employee at the branch level. These evals should be anonymous. They would learn some really interesting things about what really goes on at each branch.

    Pros

    They value autonomy which allows for creativity. It gives you the freedom to actually do what's best for your customers. If you treat your job like it's your own company apposed to just showing up everyday you'll have great results.
    As a company they truly care and treat employees as family.

    Cons

    There's still growing pains but if you're creative and proactive you can use it to your advantage. The only real con is the insurance isn't that great but I guess it's pretty much the same across the board.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage autonomy

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, competitive salaries, low-stress

    Cons

    Not good for advancing career, limited learning / advancement opportunities, unqualified candidates in certain management positions cause major inefficiencies, especially in corporate operations / IT

    Advice to Management

    Don't let family-related employees get in the way of making the correct business decision, you will continue to lose quality employees.
