6 years ago, Avnet appeared to be a company that wanted new faces that were eager to learn and grow as the company did. However, since the sale of their entire TS Division just a little over a year ago, there has been no opportunity for growth or promotion. There are many opportunities to cross train with other departments, and those departments are even willing to transfer the workload to individuals that do cross train. Unfortunately, compensation remains stagnant, and there is no incentive to cross train other than for personal growth. It is a wonderful place to get a foot in the door especially for entry level IT. At this point though, it seems that moving into a new role is just not an option, and could possibly take another 18 months before anything starts to advance again.
Decent Benefits, Ample Break Time, Many Learning and Cross Training Opportunities, Excellent Reward/Recognition Program
No Opportunity for Promotion, Low Pay, Merit Increases Are Very Low and Sometimes Delayed
