Pros: strong job security
Cons: pay and benefits, flexibility, job mobility
Working for mouser Electronics has been the best learning experience of my life. When I started I had little electronics knowledge, but because of their patience and willingness to teach me, I have acquired a functioning understanding of electronics and small component distribution. There really isn't a typical day, but there are many in depth tasks that I complete on a regular basis. My job is to be the primary point of contact for my suppliers. Anything issues that arise from cradle to the grave of products from my suppliers is my responsibility. I work with a fun and diverse team of product managers who have taught me all I know about this company and market. My favorite part of the job is the problem solving and customer service aspect. The most challenging part is the technology side. Even though I have learned a lot, I still have a long way to go before I feel strong in that aspect. The one draw back to this company is the rigidity of management, and company culture. The mentality of " that's the way we've always done it" is fairly pervasive in the company.
