    I have been working at Arrow Electronics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Arrow is an enormous company with amazing opportunities at their Corporate office in Denver (Englewood). As a Product Manager, you get to experience a little bit of everything (sales, operations, customer service, inventory). The position is a very good launching point for something else internally if you choose to do so. You technically only need to be at your position a year before you apply for anything else, but I suggest you give it more time - 2 or 3 years - and become an expert in the industry/technology before moving up.

    Cons

    Very fast paced and demanding (although I'm the type that appreciates that aspect). Sometimes it can become monotonous, but honestly, name a job that isn't from time to time. The "training" is more of a baptism by fire, but your teammates understand this and are SO very helpful - and willing to help :-)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Experience is definitely something to consider, but personalities and skill sets are too. Sometimes I think management rushes the hiring process to fill a gap, when it would be better to wait for a better team fit.

    I worked at Arrow Electronics

    Pros

    Arrow Electronics gives various opportunities of practice enhancing or sharpening one's knowledge. It also offers over times increasing salaries or tips.

    Cons

    Too many sources of instruction causing not only workers to be stressful, and frustrated., but also work itself to boring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All advices I can give to the Arrow Electronics management can be summarized by just finding a good administration or organization susceptible to help employees perform their respective tasks without stress and frustration

    Pros

    This place makes you feel at home. They really do have a family like atmosphere.

    Cons

    There are not many cons working at Arrow Electronics. Maybe that there are so many smaller companies within Arrow which makes it confusing to understand at first.
