    Pros

    Arrow is not the Technology company I thought it was. Turns out Arrow is an old fashion warehousing, pick, pack, and ship operation with a questionable value proposition. Having said that, if your main concern is a paycheck, Arrow's compensation and benefits are surprisingly good for a company with declining margins. If you live in south Denver, the location is great. I'd also have to say that first line management is fairly strong and employee oriented. Its upper management that is disconnected.

    Cons

    Arrow is caught with an old fashion business model, declining margins, strong competition, and few ideas for the future beyond cost cutting. If you're looking to finish out a working career with decent pay - Arrow may work for you. If you're a young person looking for a career - look else where. This is a company focused solely on cost cutting and surrounded by more nimble and innovative competitors. Upper management places no more value on their employees than they would a copy machine.

    Advice to Management

    Consider listening to your employees. You might be surprised to find that they have some pretty good ideas for turning around declining market share, etc.

    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 The technology is outdated (ironic for a tech company) and everything is a haphazard, hodgepodged mess.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 Management

    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.
