    Pros

    Fair compensation and good benefits. Formal approach to bonus compensation, annual employee reviews, and succession planning. Have established platforms for solid communication to all employees regarding business conditions and company performance.

    Cons

    Many of the unique programs that made Arrow different from other companies such as new employee training program in Melville, sabbatical program, and education reimbursement have been eliminated over the last several years. Job security is always in question as targeted layoffs have occurred in many different organizations year after year

  2. Not for anyone looking for advancement. This is just a paycheck.

    Pros

    3 weeks vacation within the first year. At times middle management tries to make things better but corporate management doesn't seem to care about their employees that are making the money for the company.

    Cons

    Required to work on some holidays. Can be dirty work. Hard to get the proper tools needed to do the job. Low wages.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees that work on the production floor. Without them you wouldn't have a company.

    Pros

    There were good departments to be in-but I wasn't in one. Arrow offered great time off-3 weeks to start-plus decent sick and personal time.

    Cons

    Low Pay, Bad Management. They eliminate positions, and expect the people who were left to pick up the workload. So much stress--I was miserable in this job for two years.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent-I know that there are great places to be in Arrow, just not where I was. Try to be realistic on people and how much they can handle. Offer career mentors and growth-encourage hiring from within!

    Pros

    Nice plan for "Five years out" . lots of opportunity to grow.

    Cons

    Poor pay , long hours, no work/home balance, revolving door mgmt , poor recognition in Finance, lack of knowledgeable leadership due to mgmt moving on to better paying positions.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on a bit more on our cost of living...the pay isnt enough for the demographics. , create a better work/home balance, take notice of internal referrals for open job requisitions - we wouldn't refer someone we couldn't depend on.
