I worked at Arrow Electronics

ProsGlobal Company. Large line card of suppliers and services available to customers. Training (ACT- Arrow's Centralized Training) is an excellent annual event for product trainings and networking with key suppliers.

ConsExtensive reports and initiatives with suppliers which creates many unattainable goals! FAE job responsibilities are morphing into more of technical sales job.

Great place to work if you have the right manager

Manager (Current Employee)
Englewood, CO

I have been working at Arrow Electronics

Pros-Slim margins means politics are minimized for the sake of making the right business choices
-Employee empowerment is common.
-Flexible time-off policies
-No-nonsense culture
-Base salaries are competitive

Cons-Slim margins means purchases are highly scrutinized--adequate office furniture, computers, but certainly not cutting edge.
-Work in the high-tech industry but has an antiquated compensation policy. No bonuses for employees under director level, paltry 401(k) match has long vesting period, no Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP), no stock options below director level.
-Has few company holidays.

Advice to Senior ManagementI truly enjoy the working for Arrow Electronics. Management has an understanding of where they want the company to be and has plans to get there. But... get with the times. Compensate those that actually do the work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
