    I worked at Arrow Electronics as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Huge Company, took care of interns, employees are all nice, actually got to talk to the CEO

    Cons

    Phoenix location boring, wasn't fast paced or exciting, for as big as they are there were no perks like an amazon or apple, or google.

    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time (more than 10 years)

    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

    I have been working at Arrow Electronics

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!
