    I worked at Future Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with; strong management; company has terrific inventory programs; good communication. I would return to work there again if salary would match (or exceed) what I was offered elsewhere; only left because I had an offer from another company that was too good to pass up.

    Cons

    Lots of paperwork/reports to do, which is time consuming and takes away from time I would have rather spent more productively with customers/making sales.

    Pros

    Family-oriented company with a social and ecological conscience. Owner is a philanthropist, and supports many charities both locally and around the world.

    Competition can be intimidating for some people who come from other places where they had more of a punch-in, punch-out mentality

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Future taught a different was of servicing the customer that at the time was unique in the Electronic Distribution Field. The owner (Robert Miller) cared passionatley about his people and the customers Future served.

    Cons

    The cons weren't with the company as much as they were with the fast pace of the nature of the industry. Anytime you are selling or providing a service that is different than everyone else, there is always a stress point until you understand the program.

    I worked at Future Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Great people, great training, nice benefits such as free French classes, a company barbecue, the company tries to show it cares for employees by providing helpful seminars about self improvement and personal well being.

    Cons

    I was there less than a year so don’t feel I had enough experience to evaluate any possible negative aspects of the company; overall it was a good experience and I resigned because I was moving out of the country to be closer to my family.
