    I worked at Avnet full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Historical success with execution supporting customers and supplier programs. Historically a family/team-driven employee environment.

    Cons

    The CxO leadership and business transformation in 2016/2017 placed the company in a new culture and direction, yet to be proven for success.

    On the human resources end Avnet bends over backwards to accommidate employees.
