    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.
