    Pros

    -treated like a working professional
    -employees are welcoming and friendly
    -a lot of exposure to upper-level management which is a unique facet for a Fortune 150 company

    Cons

    -Can have pretty late nights and long hours, especially at quarter-ends and year-ends
    -Be expected to work on an occasional holiday

    Advice to Management

    -Most negative reviews stem from moving headquarters west to Denver/Englewood, Colorado; so advice to management is to still revere and remember where the company came from and allow the jobs on the east coast to still be an important part of the business

    Pros

    The employees here are hardworking, intelligent and work really nicely as a team.

    Cons

    Moving to Denver and losing the history, talent and strong work ethic of really great employees. Annual raises are not guaranteed.

    Good luck in Denver.

    Pros

    Good pay, good office locations, and decent health insurance. Almost current technology and software used in most positions. Managers have lots of perks.

    Cons

    Devious, scheming, back-stabbing managers will throw employees under the bus to cover their own incompetence. Office politics are BRUTAL and pervasive. You WILL BE SPIED UPON in your phone and computer communications. You will NOT BE TRAINED. Expectations for your position will not be communicated to you, but you will be expected to have anticipated them and exceeded them. Managers change their objectives on an hourly basis. Gestapo-style HR department.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to develop, train, and support employees.

    Pros

    Very relaxed work environment,
    Flexible hours,
    Some benefits and retirement packages. Personal space.

    Cons

    Too many well paid managers on the hierarchy between me and the CEO.
    Always changing upper management every two years.
    Regular layoffs of good talent.
    No bonus no raise.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the leadership consistent. Retain and value your talented individuals
    Reward effort, else another company will have your employee and your company knowledge.

    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.
