PROJECT MANAGER (Former Employee) – Centennial, CO – June 15, 2017
You can work remote or in the office. Typically worked 9 - 10 hour days depending on number of projects. Management was typically helpful and knowledgeable Culture was not too stressful but that depended on the individual manager Co-Workers and customers were the most enjoyable part of the job.
After the conversion to SAP April 2016 it's a MESS! At one time it was a very good company to work for. Not now. After the conversion to SAP all the rolls and processes and procedures are a mess. Everyone is in a CYA mode. Layoffs all the time. VIP's left. Don't even think about it.
Always worried about a reduction in force. Management is subpar. Quality on products produced is below average.
Distribution Center Rep. II (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – June 14, 2017
After being employed at this company for almost a decade. I can honestly say that I really haven't learned any valuable life skills, management skills that I can classify as a transferable skill. Mgmt. never really wanted to listen to my brilliant ideas to promote better teamwork and improve quality issues. Management expects you to meet unreachable productivity levels. Corporate America!
One of the best parts of my employment was that I met many great people of all levels of the company that believed in me.
The people that do the work. Benefits
Workload, Management, Quality of products, taking breaks are frowned upon by mgmt.
Relaxed evironment but insular and disconnected management.
IT (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 8, 2017
Fairly low stress job. Fellow employees are nice and helpful. Don't feel pressured to work long hours.
Insular and disconnected managers(especially upper managers) that do not have proper knowledge of what their employees actually do to make them qualified to make decisions about the pay or promotion of those employees. This company doesn't seem to believe in continuous training.
Dismantler (Former Employee) – Groveport, OH – June 3, 2017
For the position I was working in, a barrage of horrible functional flaws in the general workflow made this a very regrettable atmosphere for me, and others I worked with. Flaws that affect a work salary (rate pay) are nothing anybody wants to hear.

Allocator (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – May 23, 2017
The itself is nice, however some other employees just do the bare minimum while others like to go above and beyond. Some people take advantage of the hard workers and have them do more than required and place a lot of emphasis on them instead of themselves
Excellent work life balance and relaxed work environment but lacks in advancement opportunities and has low wages
Customer Ops Support Mgr (Current Employee) – Groveport, OH – May 21, 2017
Company is great to work for and build experience. They will have you do multiple job roles due to under staffing. There are not many advancement opportunities and the wages are typically lower than at other places. The vacation allowance is great.
Support Operations Analyst (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – May 17, 2017
Work environment: Nice facility with a cafeteria. Large company setting which may not work for everyone. Love the flexibility to work from home one day a week and during special circumstances. Management was friendly and attentive although there were three supervisors in a span of 2.5 years. Reaching out to department/company contacts was challenging given the large company.
Constantly busy, flexibility to work from home, cafeteria
Not enough hours in the day, too many conference calls
Every day run of the mill corporation. Do not expect to be special.
Operations Solutions Specialist (Former Employee) – New Port Richey, FL – May 16, 2017
Very reactionary employer. Nothing is a problem until its a huge problem. There is no accepted responsibility for management mistakes, only passed down larger work loads. I found an issue in payroll with their ADP system auto-deducting from employees for meal periods even when the employee had time in/out punches. Two days later I was terminated for "Performance issues" even though I met and exceeded all metrics set forth by my manager, and had very good reviews.
Material and Product Specialist II (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – May 16, 2017
Avnet used to be a really good place to work then they went and fired all the good managers did a software system upgrade there was a disaster and can't seem to find their place in the market. All of the new management with the exception of a few hardcore and don't really understand the industry or the company.
Low stress and good stability but not a progressive company.
IT (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – May 16, 2017
I have been working here at the 47th St. Building in phoenix the whole time I have been here. Everyone's experience is different but for me this company has been relatively low stress, stable, and there is very little office politics. However this company has an old school environment, is not very progressive, and the mentality of management is about 30 years behind more progressive companies. It has been my experience that the management here lacks the competency, insight, and even interest in their employees to make a fair evaluation on job skills and contribution for determination of pay level and promotion consideration.
Fairly low stress, stability, fellow workers are nice.
Old school and not progressive, Lack of ongoing training, Insular and even obtuse management that seriously needs training.
