    Pros

    the people are nice and you get free food sometimes. Just don't eat too many donuts.

    Cons

    They lock you into sales for 18 months even if you have skills in other areas. Then they wonder why people leave. They pay extremely below national average. They promote people who are good ole boys. They love hiring young people with trust funds that can afford to work there. They just cut bonuses for people because they were doing well to ensure they do not make as much money, even though it was helping the company.

    Advice to Management

    If you see someone has potential, promote them, don't make them wait. If you do they will leave like I did.

    Pros

    okay place I guess. never hear anything from upstairs on what you're doing

    Cons

    no information given across the board, never find anything out until last minute. pay below average in the area, leads need let go or trained in properly in speaking to employees, was in complete dark of the buyout till last couple of months, lots of uncertainty in the building, low moral. if you don't want to advance this is the place

    Advice to Management

    talk to your employees , find out what is going on and DO SOMETHING about it. Don't just placate us

    Pros

    Lots of perks for people in sales (catered lunches, giveaways including vacations, tshirts), newly remodeled offices, cafeteria onsite, emphasis on work/life balance.

    Cons

    Departments work in silos and have little knowledge of what goes on in other departments. Everyone feels they have a say in a decision, causing simple requests to take much longer than needed. With the Avnet acquisition, lots of uncertainty. Lack of communication between departments. Major issues in the warehouses and nothing is being done about it.

    Pros

    Your colleagues make the job tolerable. Free food as vendors are always sponsoring lunch and learns & snack a sells. Free gifts are given from time to time

    Cons

    Where do I begin... POOR MANAGEMENT, they do not know how to talk to there employees. They(Some) are very condescending and disrespectful and when you do speak your mind or try and stand up for yourself you are shunned.

    The managers are clueless and have no idea what they're doing. They have processes that are counterintuitive to your success.

    If you are an ASR, you will never get credit for the success of the team. It will always go to the SAR and your hard work will always be overlooked by management. But the moment the team starts to slip in terms of numbers, it is all your fault. Politics plays a huge role in this company. Even if you're a great employee, if they don't like you, you will not get ahead.

    Which leads me to my next point, no room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat employees with respect.

    Learn to set realistic goals.

    Learn to be leaders instead of just managers
