    I have been working at RS Components full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pretty much everything I have so far encountered about this company could be listed as a pro! Great team that are more than happy to help new starters find their feet. Enthusiasm oozes from the office. I didn't think companies like this existed any more. Its a pleasure to get up and go to work.

    Cons

    Really haven't encountered any cons. Its a big company. Lots of systems and acronyms to familiarise. Can seem a little daunting at first, but everyone is more than happy to assist!!

    I worked at RS Components full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of hard working dedicated colleagues across digital & technology. Lots of career progression opportunities, sideways, diagonal, upwards to help broaden knowledge across technology and the business. Investment in training is there if you want it. Genuinely loved going to work everyday for the full 5.5 years I worked there.

    Cons

    Pockets of poor leadership is shared across the function resulting in the loss of some committed highly skilled, business knowledgeable colleagues. Don’t let this put you off though as I personally loved this place.
