    I worked at Future Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Company has strong sense of corporate social/community responsibility. Supports a lot of charitable causes.

    Cons

    Having to wear a tie and the dress code, I can understand when you are meeting clients but when you are in your office all the time it doesn't make sense. There is no possibility to take unpaid vacation.

    I have been working at Future Electronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Co workers are family - long term many over 20 years with company
    Good Insurance and stability of company strong
    innovative - original owner is instrumental in creating programs unique to the industry and making them successful

    Cons

    Tend to lose lines that are critical to revenue especially with design programs you invest in
    Corporate focus changes too quickly - new initiatives constantly keep your head spinning
    lots of reports - spreadsheets are too many columns need to be more concise to get results

    Advice to Management

    Re engage in the concept of "Delight the customer" - we are a distributor and customer relationships do matter - get upper management out to meet customers - it is customers that keep the doors open and customers can get products elsewhere if they feel that their wants/needs are not met

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere. Co-workers and manager were great. Everyone tried to help you succeed. Pay was decent.

    Cons

    Corporate sends out a lot of initiatives but doesn't realize that each market is different. They force inside sales to call into your accounts to upsell which interferes with the personal relationship you've built face to face.

    Advice to Management

    Just try to get a better feel for each cities market to form better plans to sell into that market.
