constantly breathing down your neck to work faster and faster and constantly increasing quotas beyond reasonable levels. would not give you any days off for vacation or time to go to the doctor if you were sick would not accept any doctor's excuses to miss work.
Strategic Project Manager (Former Employee) – Broomfield, CO – January 29, 2019
For large company, Avnet does a decent job focusing on employees, but struggled to adapt fast enough to changing market conditions. Ultimately, it's technology division was sold which was probably best for everyone.
T2 Technical Support (Former Employee) – Trinity, FL – January 21, 2019
Avnet absorbed the company that I worked for (Nexicore) and within a year, closed all support contracts, closed the locations doors, and laid off almost all employees that didn't take the move to the Ohio location (from a Florida site).
Too much favortism within the company, as well as politicing
Contracts Manager Associate (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 28, 2018
Lots of underhanded occurrences happening. Management proves to be very deceptive and unfair in their dealings. I was forced to work for one year under a highly bias supervisor/manager and although I went to management, nothing but excuses were given on each occasion.
Product Specialist (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – December 27, 2018
Avnet is a great company to work for, its people are the heart beat that keeps it going. The benefits and salary are great. I was offered many other jobs while at Avnet but stayed because Avnet was/is a great company to work for.
Benefits and salary and great management.
If I had to say a con it would be traveling to Arizona in the HOT summer
Material Specialist (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 14, 2018
I loved working for Avnet for 5 years. Something happened, new CEO and changes started with no clear explaination and then the cuts started for downsizing. The stock dropped and well, I'm not sure what happened and after being gone for a year...I still don't know what happened, but the company continues to be challenged.
eCommerce Single Point of Purchase Team Member (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – December 9, 2018
I worked at Avnet as part of my senior capstone project and enjoyed the experience of being able to apply what I had been learning at school. The people I had the opportunity to work with were very patient and helpful and allowing us time to understand the problem and walking us through the steps to solve the problem.
Very stressfull and abundance of work, lots of turn around on management. Worked during lunch hours and many times after 5 pm as well. Didn't have much room for advancement and pay was minimal for the job performed.
Product Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – Overland Park, KS – November 15, 2018
Good company, not a lot of opportunity to advance. Good benefits, a lot of meetings, layoffs come often. Tuition assistance, this is one of those companies to retore from.... No one leaves a place like this unless ur laid off
Product Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – November 12, 2018
You get the technology work experience you need at Avnet, just not the pay that other companies would pay you for a similar position. It is a great place for jr. folk to learn the ropes and forge relationships you will leverage for the rest of your IT career, but unless you are part of the C-Suite you will not make at Avnet what you could elsewhere.
Again it is a great company to grow with if you are a junior level employee.
