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

    Pros

    Relaxed, open door environment, but that is changing for the worst. Great coworkers, cooperative attitude of helping out. Generally not a lot of silos and turf wars. Pay is low, but not bad... heavily skewed to top management. Location in Glenview is fairly nice. 401k has 6% company match.

    Cons

    Becoming a faceless "big business". Very little diversity: Nearly all VPs are married white males! Management seems focused on costs to the exclusion of growth, employee development and satisfaction.
    Not much career development unless you are in sales.
    A 3% raise is considered great! Many years of no raises, for anyone...except for top management.
    The fewest number of holidays I have ever seen: 6. Pension is largely a joke. Medical plan is United Healthcare: subpar.

    Advice to Management

    Remember what made the company great: its people. Treat them well while you take more than your share.

    I have been working at Anixter International full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you are a valuable employee, they will find the best fit...sales, Corporate, Ops, etc. Good to know that you have job security, if you do the right things.

    Cons

    Compenstation does not always directly align with responsibilities. Pay not based on job, but more tenure with company.
