Pros

Anixter offers much training throughout the course of working there, so the education gained is worthwhile. They are also one of the few companies that offer a pension.

Cons

I can only speak for my location, but there is a major disconnect between management and the sales team regarding what sales is actually doing throughout the day. Feedback is non-existent, and if there is, then it's always negative whether or not you are meeting/exceeding plan. Pay and bonus plans are also lousy.

Advice to Management

Spend more time developing and mentoring your staff. A first step would be to respect them, and providing feedback relating to their performance.

    Pros

    Management encourages education and is lenient in regards to allowing employees further their careers. Compensation package is similiar to industry packages.

    Cons

    The cons include limited ability to reach Senior Management as their is only a few designated positions available. Another aspect is the pay scales of many positions are below industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    Overall it is a good place to work, but upper management staff should look more closely at mid-level management and determine if the competance level is adequate.
