I worked at Future Electronics full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

An island of English speakers amidst an ocean of French. Multi-unit organization, with branches in over 150 countries. You will meet competent and interesting individuals. Some opportunities for growth, but reserved for cronies.

Cons

There is no avoiding the politics. You are either "with us, or against us". Cronyism and nepotism run rampant. Consequently, management, including senior management is populated by paranoid, spineless, back-stabbing, often-incompetent sycophants who will suck the life out of any competent, ethical individual. Unethical and dubious business practices have resulted in ongoing attrition and the outright defections of strategic partners and suppliers. A revolving door of misery. Two stars allocated only due to the calibre of some of its workforce.

Advice to Management

None. You are broken toys.

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

    Pros

    Lots of room to learn and grow through the on-site training sessions and invaluable personnel.

    Cons

    Overly micro-managed. For those who don't require it, this can be a hindrance. Too much time is spent on reporting instead of putting the energy where it's needed - in the field with the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your people better as was done in the past. Return to a more personalized service structure within the company to embolden a sense of ownership.
