    I have been working at Arrow Electronics as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I benefitted most from the networking opportunities and hands-on experience I received. The people at Arrow are some of the nicest I've ever met and they genuinely care for one another. The internship program is very structured but still allows you to exercise freedom in your work. I got especially lucky with the team I worked with, which I think is what really made this internship such a good experience. Definitely a great place to intern!

    Cons

    The required intern group projects were pretty time consuming and got in the way of every day work. We were all happy to present our projects and be done with them. Communication within the company also seems to be somewhat lacking, but they are such a large company that this is to be expected.

    Pros

    Good health insurance and a cafeteria if you work in "building 1".

    Cons

    Mgmt is bottom of the rung. Many have no education and have mastered office politics in a bad way to get where they are at. No advancement opportunities overall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some real management classes. You are no longer in high school. When you say you're going to do xxx, actually do it and follow through.

    Pros

    Wonderful work life balance. Managers are friendly and overall easy to work with. Atmosphere at work is comfortable and generally stress-free.

    Cons

    Very little movement up the corporate ladder. Unless you transfer departments you will most likely stay within $2k to $5k of your current salary range.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more opportunities for communication between the sales teams and the corporate product managers.

    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Possibility to telecommute, stable company, good salaries, and there some great, hardworking people there.

    Cons

    Your experience will depend on your direct boss. The company is so large that you can get lost if you aren't proactive. Also, the company doesn't invest much in education or perks unless you are in Sales. It's strictly no-frills--there aren't normal company functions i.e. an annual holiday party if you are into that sort of thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try a more progressive approach for company education and employee engagement. Arrow got rid of sabbaticals and tuition reimbursement, which is a shame. It's worth it to invest in loyal employees.

    Pros

    They offer above average benefits and competitive pay.

    Cons

    The executive leadership is completely out of touch with its employees and reality. They are more concerned with the bottom line to impress their stock holders than they are on creating a better customer experience and for taking care of and rewarding their employees. They don't offer profit sharing or employee stock options and for a company this size to not invest in education reimbursement speaks volumes of their lack of foresight. For a company that preaches "innovation" and "5 years out" they show little to no preparation for a future with good employees. They do not reward, they do not promote, and they do not invest in their own talent. The culture there is "don't screw it up" and it shows. This company is completely broke of action consistent to what it touts it is. Go work for them if you want to believe in false promises and are happy staying in a stagnant thankless job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Layoff all of your senior management team Director level and up. Oh and go tighten your own belts! Maybe sell the two or three luxury import sedans you drive to work and give something back to your employees. If you're buying an AMG special order sedan and yet can't provide raises due to an "uncertain economic climate" then you're clearly cutting the bacon a little thicker on your plate than your employees. Truly a sad and pathetic company run by past middle age overweight white men who only look out for themselves. How about you stay true to your slogan of being Innovators and 5 years out...not Followers and 25 years back.

    Pros

    Great co workers, laid back feeling from management, and good benefits.

    Cons

    Been with the company for 2 years now, never hit the 100% monthly bonus even though the company is doing well. Management doesn't say thank you and only concentrates on employees few mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest when hiring people. Position titles can be misleading. As a product manager, I was in charge of supplier relations, but never managed a Product. Also the compensation is confusing. If they hired someone at a given salary, you can expect to only be paid 85% of that.
