    I worked at Arrow Asia Pac full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Colleagues are co workers are good

    Cons

    Quarterly targets mean never ending rounds of lay offs and last minute cuts to bonuses should you ever get close to them.

     You never do feel valued at this company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff are not numbers you hire and fire just to hit your own bonuses and make wall street numbers look good.

    I worked at Arrow Asia Pac

    Pros

    -Excellent colleagues
    -Pace is manageable
    -Junior-Mid level management is decent
    -Pay is reasonable

    Cons

    -The APAC President doesn't treat employees as people
    -Everything is about the bottom line
    -Many legacy employees not willing to change
    -Finance department is the worst in the business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most individuals still have fond memories of working at Arrow Asia but the last few years 2007/2008 onwards has been hell ever since APAC changed their leadership. You can't blame anyone except yourselves for the unhappiness in the office. Start treating people with some respect and set clear objectives on what you are trying to achieve.
