I worked at Arrow Electronics full-time

Pros

Good port in a storm during a tough economic time, if you don't mind working very late and very hard while being treated badly.

Cons

This company doesn't know what a process is. The technology is outdated (ironic for a tech company) and everything is a haphazard, hodgepodged mess. Lots of turnover, but also lots of people who've only been in this industry and have a very skewed idea about the way most corporations work. Backwards and stuck in the 50s. Literally no career ladder.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't treat employees like crap. Don't lay them off the minute the numbers are down. Don't give yourselves big exec raises when you don't give them to employees. Have an actual culture.

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

    Pros

    All training and tools needed

    Cons

    Too many important secrets kept

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up and be more open to what's going on. Get to know your floor crew, some people do not belong in positions of authority.

    I have been working at Arrow Electronics full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work/life balance and very great people to work with

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive
    Upper Management does not care about the people that are currently working for them.
    Capped on commission so you cant make alot of money
    All in all morale is down for people because they are not getting rewarded for their hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Upper Mangement team needs to recognize that people are going to leave cause of these issues and motivate people to stay. You keep taking the wind out of our sails.
