this company is downsizing
Accounts Receivable-Financial Ops. Rep (Current Employee) –  Richardson, TXApril 17, 2017
Sold about half of its company, so it is downsizing. I only work in the AR dept. Don't like the fact that our credit dept. is in another state so communication isn't as accurate as it should be.

Technical Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Groveport, OHApril 4, 2017
Spend most of your time in a cubicle and would usually have to get up to get a response from people, people aren't always staring at the SameChat window or Skype. Agents would sometimes become irate because of the limitations that has been put on Avnet by All State. The only Hardware that we could replace was a HDD with the image provided by Allstate or a Computer that was ordered from the website that was still in Warranty. Other than that it was mostly calling Agents back from the tickets that the Customer Service Reps or taking the calls yourself when things slowed down.
Pros
Cafateria Downstairs with self service
Cons
You often have to serve as a Customer Service Rep instead of Technician.

Pros

Technical Marketing Engineer (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXApril 3, 2017
Avnet is a fantastic company to work for and they have great benefits. The management really cares about the employees and are actively involved in public service projects.

Their recent switch to SAP did not go smoothly so there are still issues trying to keep customers happy.
Pros
Great Benefits
Cons
Advancement is limited

Not bad
Materials Specialist Intern (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMarch 19, 2017
Its pretty laid back depending on your manager, i liked my team but but being a younger college student interning its rare to come by many younger faces. Most people have been there for 15+ years sometimes more and they're pretty set in their ways.

Productive, never a dull moment
Quality Analyst (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZMarch 13, 2017
My days were always busy with daily and monthly reports, quality inspection, pulling devices out of warehouse for RMA inspection and pictures.

Strong personable management always available for questions or concerns. We had several company sponsored events, management was always involved. We always looked forward to these events, a good time was had by all.

It takes a couple of months for people to warm up to you outside of work related issues.

I learned a lot from the engineers and technicians on the floor on how to troubleshoot servers.

And my favorite, I was able to pick my own hours. (depends on your job).
Pros
Company sponsored events
Cons
Long term temporary employee

Old school company and culture, attempting to catch up
Contractor - Sr. Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMarch 6, 2017
Avnet is a "good ole boys" club, and in many ways a carry-over of old school company cultures. They are attempting to add new ways to drive employee engagement, and they also instituted a "no-limit" vacation policy. Basically, as long as performance goals are being met, and your manager approves, you receive unlimited vacation time. This is just one benefit they are now offering that many other valley employers have offered for years.

Don't waste your time!
Marketing/Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMarch 3, 2017
Looks and sounds like a great company on the surface, but try working there. Management is a "good old boy" network, and your prospects for advancement are slim and none unless you're part of their network. Salaries are also much lower than industry average, and benefits are mediocre.

Their go-to-market methods and practices are a complete joke! They have no marketing automation system and don't track or measure results.

They fawn all over suppliers because they front all the marketing expenses, but provide no marketing support to partners, who are "in the trenches" making the sales.

They're VERY slow to innovate—especially senior management. In fact, Avnet lost ground in the market because the former CEO resisted moving the company's focus to cloud and 3rd platform

The wrong people are rewarded. People who've been there for years sell the same stuff to the same customers year after year and are rewarded with an annual trip to Hawaii while new people with lower numbers are threatened.

It's hard to get anything done because everyone operates in “CYA” mode. They claim to be interested in “new blood and fresh ideas,” but resist change and keep doing the same old thing—even if it doesn't work.
Pros
Nice co-workers
Cons
Weak senior management team that resists change and innovation

Helpdesk II (Current Employee) –  Groveport, OHMarch 2, 2017
Started with Avnet to get hands on experience in the IT field and was promised advancement of training through the company.
Helpdesk support was fast paced and demanded much, quickly mastered basic troubleshooting and repair techniques and moved to higher tier - more involved cases with no more room for growth within this company.
