I worked at Arrow Electronics (more than 10 years)

Pros

If you're good, you can run your own desk without being bugged too much by Management.
Compensation is good if you happen to be coming off a bad year.

Cons

If you're coming off a good year, your budgeted to not make as much the next.
If you make too much money, you're expedable.
Best to just make budget, and not to exceed plan or you have a target on your back as the company can save good money by letting you go. All it takes is one strategic, low Employee Review, and you're toast regardless of your contribution to revenue and the bottom line.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a clue, your best sales people today are your best hope for a successful tomorrow.. Don't lay 'em off just because they had a good year and you need to save some $$.

    I have been working at Arrow Electronics full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
