    Pros

    The people that work for Arrow are incredibly nice. People are welcoming and enjoyable to work with. There is a reason why people stay so long and it's because the people you work with make it worth while to stay.

    Cons

    There was no training program when I came into my job. I also came in at year end, and in finance, which is the worst time. So I had to learn quick and self-teach myself where all the folders and database systems were and how to use them. I keep hearing pay is low compared to other companies, but I'm part time so I don't see a real difference. There is no tuition reimbursement and health benefits are really expensive for part time employees ($800) for a family of 5. Thankfully we have insurance through my husband currently.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the tuition reimbursement at least, try to care about your people by offering more vacation and PTO as well.

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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
