Avnet has had some recent growing pains.
Sales and Marketing Supervisor (Former Employee) – Florida – October 16, 2018
I worked for Avnet for a very long time (over 24 years). I enjoyed the time I spent at Avnet for the majority of those years. It was a lean organization where Upper Management made a point of getting to know everyone.
In recent years, however, the company had a change in CEO and many board members, creating a company who's sole purpose was to increase company profits at the expense of it's customers and employees. It became much more rigid, removing many of the field based decisions into Corporate to manage. This also caused us to be unable to do the things we once did for our customers in the way of Customer Service.
good working environment in field sales locations, good benefits and pay.
No consistent strategy for growth - became very reactionary instead of visionary.
