I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good compensation, independent work environment, challenging and satisfying work. Excellent mamnagement, and the company cares about people, recognizing that people do make a difference. This leads to competitive advantage, which adds to growth and success.

Cons

The macro environment in this industry is changing, causing the company to have to change with it. It is a very competitive, tough environment now, where excellence callot be rewarded as well as before. Not the company's fault, it is just that the industry is changing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is doing a great job managing change and balancing success, profit and staff. I would not know how to do it better.

    Pros

    Co workers are awesome - great talent pool!!

    Cons

    Sharks with very questionable morals with respect to what is "the right thing to do". It's all about the $ and not the people. There have literally been people who worked themselves to death trying to handle the workload with very little in return. This is a cash-cow and there is not a significant overall interest in the employees (despite the fascade generated through training - it isn't put to work) In general, this company wants you to live-to-work NOT work-to-live and in most cases, the compensation is unfufilling at best and terrible in most cases, gased upon the huge workload.

    They keep piling on the work until you say "whoa'; caution - saying "whoa" automatically means you are no longer an asset.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reasonable expectations.

    Doesn't Recommend

    No opinion of CEO
